A person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.
Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. As children, our heroes usually came in the form of Superman and Ironman, sports athletes and celebrities. As we get older, our perspective changes…and so do our heroes. This race is for those everyday heroes that we know and come in contact with. Whoever your hero may be, come race with us and dedicate your run to them. Who knows, someone just might be dedicating this run to you.
We want people to have fun while running and invite everyone to dress up as their favorite superheroes to run the race. Each runner will also have the opportunity to write down the name of the hero they are running for on their race bibs as a way to dedicate the race to that person. Hero Run wants to make each participant a hero in themselves by having a portion of the proceeds go to Friday’s Kids Respite. Not only will you be running for a hero, you will be a hero. We hope to see you there!

This race will start runners in Kiwanis Park in Provo, just across from Brigham Young University. The course will take runners south by Seven Peaks Water Park and the 5k runners will break away from the pack and head west on Center St. to 700 E. 10k runners will continue south and make their way up (literally- this is a good upward climb) the back side of Slate Canyon Dr. before heading back to State St. and eventually joining up on 700 E. Runners will head north on 700 E until they come to JDawgs and then head east to 900 E and head north to Birch Lane, which will lead them back to Kiwanis Park.
Note to runners: 700 E from Center St. and 900 E. to Birch Ln. is a gradual uphill climb so pace yourself so you won’t burn out.
