Description of Race Events

Wizards and Muggles are invited out for a 5K family run to remember. The Fifth Annual Potter Run and the Badger's Year! Proceeds benefit Intermountain Healing Hearts.

We invite you to race live with us in West Jordan, Utah or across the wizarding world in your wizard or muggle attire. Each Pre-Registered participant will receive the commemorative medal, which is the third part of a 4-year series. We are highlighting the Badgers this year. You can also order your special performance tech t-shirt in your registration (these can sell out).

At the live race enjoy a chance to take pictures with your favorite Characters, play some Quidditch, meet live owls and snakes, and play on the castle playground. Stick around for the award ceremony and the costume contest and the very special "Angel Memorial ceremony" with a butterfly release; bring your wands! There will be a huge Silent Auction all benefiting Intermountain Healing Hearts. Then grab some breakfast from the Healing Hearts volunteers and enjoy much more Potterific Festivities!

I Solemnly Swear that I run for Good...

Your virtual or live run will involve a 5 K done at your own pace and time. This event also will include a new element akin to what happens at the end of every Lets Make a Deal episode! We will tweet/facebook/instagram a clue to something from a Harry Potter. Everyone who posts and guesses correctly by sharing thier guess as a comment or image with #GeeksforGood and #PotterRun will be entered in to win some great HP swag! This includes at the actual live event in West Jordan. Come dressed as whatever you think the clue is or bring something to match it and perhaps win!

These events gets funner when everyone shares their stories and encourages others so please feel free to get as engaged in the event as you'd like.
