Miners' Day traditionally opens with Bark City 5K fun run, where participants start the day with a little exercise and are encouraged to bring their dogs. This year, due to COVID-19 concerns, we will be doing a virtual version of this Park City classic. You will still sign up online, but on the morning of the event, you simply pick your favorite 5K route, run on your own or with friends, and then post your times either manually or by syncing your fitbit or other timing device along with any photos of your race. Finishing times, photos and other information will be posted on the official race site. As always, the race is sponsored by Park City Rotary (the Twilight club) with 100% of the proceeds going back to community causes. This is a great way to get some exercise, have some fun, and support the community when it is needed most.
The virtual run will take place on Sept 7th. You'll get an additional email a day or two before the event with instructions on how to submit your time. For merch this year we are including one neck gaiter with the Miners' Day logo on it, which will be handed out on Saturday, Sept 5th. Registrations after Sept. 4 will not include a neck gaiter.
