5 Canyons Bike Challenge, Mountain Bike Challenge, Ultra-marathon and 5K
HAVE WHAT IT TAKES?
5 Canyons Bike Challenge – September 25, 2021 @ 7:00 AM
5 Canyons is one of the most daunting—and beautiful—cycling challenges in the country, ascending more than 14,000 feet over 116 miles through all five of Salt Lake City’s picturesque riding canyons. Comprising three HC climbs and two Category 2 climbs, the ride has more vert than almost any other ride in America and certainly the steepest average gradient. If you think you have what it takes, rally your friends and come join us in September!
5 Canyons Mountain Bike Challenge – Coming 2022!
5 Canyons Ultramarathon – September 25, 2021 @ 7:00 AM
5 Canyons Ultramarathon is one of the country’s most beautiful ultras. The run begins at Elbow Fork in Millcreek Canyon and then proceeds up and over Lamb’s Canyon Pass and down Lamb’s Canyon Trail through Lamb’s Canyon into Parley’s Canyon. It continues from Parley’s Canyon along the Sheep Trail to Big Mountain in East Canyon, and then on to the true top of City Creek Canyon. From there, we work our way down the little known yet gorgeous Meadow Trail to Rotary Park at what most people consider to be the top of City Creek Canyon and then the rest of the way down the canyon, finishing at the Utah Capitol building. The run includes more than 6,000 feet of vert over 58 kilometers (36 miles)!
5 Canyons 5K – September 25, 2021 @ 11:00 AM
Not in the mood to run 58K? How about 5K? While waiting for a friend or loved one to cross the finish line at the Capitol, why not join the fight? The 5 Canyons 5K starts at the Capitol, wraps along Bonneville Blvd. (at the base of City Creek Canyon) to 11th Ave., and then comes back again to finish at the Capitol. There’s no sense in letting everyone else enjoy all the fun.
All proceeds from 5 Canyons benefit Wheels of Justice (including Wings of Justice), a nonprofit dedicated to putting an end to child abuse. The inspiration for the ride is that Ain’t No Mountain High Enough to keep us from fighting for the most vulnerable among us, our children.
In addition to your registration fee, please consider including your family and friends in the fight by asking them to donate a penny for each foot of elevation you climb during the event. In this way, they can join you in showing that Ain’t No Mountain High Enough!
Please also join us at the 5 Canyons Festival the evening before the big event. There will be lots of food, vendors, music, and a killer silent auction. 5 Canyons merchandise, including the coveted 5 Canyons finishers bike jersey, will be available for sale at the festival as well as on our DNA team store.
