About This Activity

This race is different from any other race that you have ever run. It is a race to see who can cross the finish line closest to midnight without crossing it too early. The catch is that there will be no timing devices allowed. So the challenge is to start at the correct time for your pace so that you can be the first to cross after midnight.


This race is done under a full moon and all of the runners are given glow sticks and other fun glowing devices. The course is mostly a gradual descent out of Hobble Creek Canyon and the cool night air is a nice relief from the heat of summer.


The finish line is a huge party with lots of food, music, and givaways. Awards will be given for best costume. All runners are given a medal, a shirt, and a swag bag.


This is a fundraising race for the Mapleton Parkway Trail. This is a running trail that will run from Hobble Creek Canyon all of the way through Mapleton and into Spanish Fork.

Event details and schedule

This race is different from any other race that you have ever run. It is a race to see who can cross the finish line closest to midnight without crossing it too early. The catch is that there will be no timing devices allowed. So the challenge is to start at the correct time for your pace so that you can be the first to cross after midnight. You might find it a little bit odd, but we let runners start the race whenever they want. Most runners start sometime between 8:00 and 10:00pm.

Participants will recieve a shirt, a medal, and a selected glow item (glowsticks, hats, glasses, wands, rings, etc. First come, first serve)

Packet pick-up will be August 27th and 28th from 6:00pm - 9:00pm.

At the finish line we will have drinks, snacks, and music. Most runners come in at around midnight so it it a huge party while we cheer on the final runners.
