The Salt Lake City Track Club is an athletic organization that provides for the association of persons interested in personal health and wellness through the activity of running. The Club's primary focus is distance running, but all types of runners are welcome. Volunteerism is also strongly promoted and is an essential component of the Club. As an athletic organization, we organize, promote, and support Club sponsored races and training runs that provide opportunities for runners to associate and compete. In addition, we support fitness in the community through support of children's and high school running events throughout the Salt Lake City area as well as volunteer efforts at selected local races. Our activities are dedicated to promoting the welfare of the Club membership and the Utah running community.
