The Thankful 13 Half Marathon, 5K, and Kid’s Run started in 2012 and has grown to be one of the largest Thanksgiving Morning Turkey Trots in Utah with over 4,000 runners for 2018. In 2019 we added the beautiful 10K run to our race family. The course is along Jordan River Parkway Trail with beautiful views of the Jordan river, ponds, and wildlife.

This race has different courses to include even the most elite runners with the half marathon but also beginning runners with the 5K. There is something for the whole family. Runtastic Events has been apart of the racing community for years.

We are promoting a healthy lifestyle, while also promoting a great cause. A portion of the proceeds goes toward participating charities.
