The Pioneer Day Temple to Temple 5K race begins at the Provo LDS temple and treks through the beautiful streets of Provo city, past the BYU campus, and to the new Provo City Center LDS temple. For a race route map, click here.
The race begins at 8AM on July 24 – Pioneer Day! Festivities will continue until the last “pioneers” make it to the finish line. Run for free, get a shirt for $6, or a shirt and a race chip for $10. All participants must register by clicking here.
We invite men, women, and children of all ages and running abilities to participate! Walk the 5K with your family, or even while pushing a stroller. We invite LDS members and non-members alike to join us on this historic day.
We’d like to thank Provo City and BYU for allowing us to continue this annual tradition. Permits are secured, and registration is open early enough to allow us time to hit our goal of 15,000 participants! That’s right, 15,000! With your help, we can do it!
This year, each participant is required to register. As always, registration is 100% FREE. Prior to race day, each registered runner will receive a race bib, which you must have in order to participate on race day. Again, it’s FREE, just be sure to register. If you would like a t-shirt and timing chip, those may be purchased on the registration page for $10, or you can get just the shirt for $6.
Pick up for shirts, bibs and timing chips will be July 22 & 23 from 5pm to 9pm at the Provo temple West parking lot, as well as 6am on race day.
Former President A. LeGrand Richards of the Provo South Stake is encouraging each of last year’s participants to invite (and bring) one new friend, family member, coworker, etc, to run this year. He also hopes that every runner will continue the tradition by running, or walking in honor of an ancestor. President Ben Larson is excited to continue the tradition and will be participating with his family.
