An active transportation and recreation team relay to explore the conditions of the Salt Lake Valley’s waterways, from pristine headwaters to buried creeks and channelized canal to meandering river.
Teams consist of a biker, boater, and runner. Participants bike the path of City Creek, continuing as the creek gets buried underground. This leg ends at the creek’s confluence with the Jordan River, the historic Utah State Fairpark. The second teammate boats the Jordan River northward, following the river as it turns from a channelized canal to a meandering, healthy river. This leg ends at 1800 North. The Jordan River Trail is utilized for the final stretch of the race. The final teammate will run past native riparian vegetation, as well as invasive invaders. The finish line is back at the Utah State Fairpark. Bikes are generously supplied by Green Bike and boats by the National Ability Center. All you need to participate is a bike helmet. The Range 2 River Relay is light on competition and heavy on fun!
Finish Line Celebration
Come learn about local causes from the Jordan River Commission, River District Chamber, and Salt Lake County Watershed Planning & Restoration. Enjoy bites from Argentina’s Best Empanadas and drinks. Live music by Jane Lyon and Tyrone Post. Spectators can watch as participants finish the bike leg, start the boat leg, or come into the finish line on the running leg. Competitors can cheer on their teammates as they finish the race. Make sure to stay for the crowning of this years’ Range 2 River Relay champions!
