“We are excited about the race this year,” said Elizabeth Michalek, Paragon’s Director of Client Services. “Approximately 100 people participated last year. We hope to more than double that number this year to help even more single mothers attend college.”
Participants can run or walk the 3.1-mile course. It begins and ends at Fort Utah Park (200 N. Geneva Road in Provo). The course is along the Provo River Trail going west toward Utah Lake.
“The course is in a new location this year,” said Michalek. “We will also have a professional timing system, a new t-shirt design and new prizes for our drawings.”
The registration fee is $20 before May 1, $25 after, and $30 the day of the race. It includes a t-shirt, refreshments and a chance to win prizes in a drawing. Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female winners. Visit http://www.liveyourdream5k.com to register.
