Provo Monster Mile & 5K

Oct 17, 11 Provo Monster Mile & 5K

Provo Monster MileHappy Halloween! Get into the Halloween spirit and burn off a few calories this year at the Provo Monster Mile and 5K. But if you’re not feeling up to running a 5K, there is also a one-mile dash. So why is this different than any other race or outdoor activity in Provo? Because everyone will be in costume! Following the race, there will be awards, a costume contest, live music, and even trunk-or-treating–the perfect start to a Halloween weekend!

All the fun begins at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 29, 2011, at Riverview Park in Provo, just southwest of Macaroni Grill in the Riverwoods. What’s even better about this race is that all the proceeds go to ACE, the Academy of Creating Enterprise. This Utah-based non-profit organization teaches business principles to young adults in developing countries, namely Mexico, Brazil, and the Philippines. These students can then go on to provide for their families and create jobs for others with their business knowledge. The goal for the race is to raise enough money to fund tuition for one student ($1,050), which is approximately a $2 donation from each running participant.
