32nd Annual 5K Law Day Run & Walk
“Every Step ~ Every Voice ~ Every Vote”
We’d like to invite you, your family, your friends, your firm and your organization to become a part of an exciting tradition: the 32nd Annual “AND JUSTICE FOR ALL” Law Day 5K Run & Walk. The Law Day Run is an event that supports free civil legal aid programs and attracts runners and walkers from Utah’s legal community.
On May 17, 2014, the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law will host the 32nd Annual Law Day 5K Run & Walk with the scenic race course running through the campus. Last year, this event attracted nearly 1,400 participants and raised $47,140 for civil legal aid programs in Utah.
This year’s Utah State Bar Law Day theme is American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters.

USATF CERTIFIED COURSE: The course is a scenic route through the University of Utah campus. A copy of the course map is available here.
CHIP TIMING: Timing will be provided by Sports-Am electronic race monitoring. Each runner will be given an electronic chip to measure their exact start and finish time. Results will be posted on www.sports-am.com/raceresults/ following the race.
RACE AWARDS: Prizes will be awarded to the top male and female winners of the race, the top male and female attorney winners of the race, and the top two winning speed teams. Medals will be awarded to the top three winners in every division, and the runner with the winning time in each division will receive two tickets to the Utah Arts Festival.
RECRUITER COMPETITION: It’s simple, the organization who recruits the most participants for the Run will be awarded possession of the Recruiter Trophy for one year and air transportation for two on JetBlue Airways for non-stop travel between Salt Lake City and New York, NY or Long Beach, CA. However, all participating recruiters are awarded a prize because success of the Law Day Run depends upon our recruiters! To become the 2014 “Team Recruiter Champion,” recruit the most registrants under your organization’s name. Be sure the Recruiting Organization is filled in on the registration form to get competition credit.
SPEED TEAM COMPETITION: Compete as a Speed Team by signing up five runners (with a minimum of two female racers) to compete together. All five finishing times will be totaled and the team with the fastest average time will be awarded possession of the Speed Team Trophy for one year. There is no limit to how many teams an organization can have, but a runner can participate on only one team. To register as a team, have all five runners fill in the same Speed Team name on the registration form.
SPEED INDIVIDUAL ATTORNEY COMPETITION: In addition to the overall top male and female race times recognized, the top male and female attorneys with the fastest race times will be recognized. To enter, an individual must fill in their State Bar number in the space provided.
BABY STROLLER DIVISION: To register you and your baby as a team, choose the Baby Stroller Division. IMPORTANT: Baby Stroller entrants register only in the baby stroller division. Registration for the stroller pusher is the general race registration amount ($25 pre-registration, $35 day of). Simply add on $10 for each baby t-shirt that you want to receive (baby shirts for day-of registrants will be sent out later). Don’t forget to fill in a t-shirt size for both adult and baby.
WHEELCHAIR DIVISION: Wheelchair participants register and compete in the Wheel Chair Division. An award will be given to the top finisher.
“IN ABSENTIA” RUNNER DIVISION: If you can’t attend the day of the race, you can still register in the “In Absentia” Division and your t-shirt and participation packet will be sent to you after the race.
CHAISE LOUNGE DIVISION: Register in the Chaise Lounge Division. Bring your favorite lounge chair, don your t-shirt, and enjoy a morning snack while cheering on the runners and walkers as they cross the finish line!
