We were born and raised at the base of the Cottonwood Canyons and have made these canyons our home. As active outdoor enthusiasts we wanted to create events where others could enjoy these beautiful mountains…this is how Vigor Utah was born.
Our goal at Vigor Utah, is America and Utah first. It is our intention to have 100% of all products provided at Vigor events to be made locally. This includes: sponsors, shirts manufactured, medals manufactured (by Dynabuckle), local businesses supporting the finish line, etc. This may keep our product (bling) smaller, but please keep in mind it cost us more to bring Utah’s own products to you. Our hope is you would prefer to support our local economy with a smaller finisher medal, than support other nations by sporting the biggest medal out there. Either way, Vigor Utah appreciates your support!

Thank you for putting on this run, it was everything I had hoped it would be and more. The organization and volunteers were great. Not all runs are created equal and this one rates at the top.Carol
Excellent race! Fun run! Thanks- and great shirts too.Becca
Really enjoyed your efforts in putting on a great race. Yes, the scenery was beautiful, the tech shirts colorful, and the after-party flavorful. Hope to see you at one of your trail runs this summer.Roger the Runner from Fort Collins
I loved this race and will put it on the calendar for next year! By the way I was whining about the super early start time and bus ride. Then I saw all the wonderful volunteers and the coffee guys that probably started the day before me. You found some special people to be willing to get up so early and take care of a bunch of runners. So keep the early start time. It was awesome to be home by 8 and in the bath soaking my aches away. Take careJenelle
I loved it. Great Job. The 6:00 start was perfect.Tom
I had a great time at the race this past Saturday. I felt that it was well run and organized.Lynda
I loved everything about it! - Parking was a breeze and so was getting to the shuttles. loved that we were able to stay in a warm room and drink hot cocoa. Weather was perfect! The course? The best - from beginning to the end. Support and finish line snacks and drinks amazing!!! Love the shirt. Can't wait to do it again next year. Thank you.Belinda and Ron
Packet pickup was great. Like early hours. 25% discount at store was SO NICE. The lodge at the top worked nicely. Bathrooms too. The downhill walk not too bad. Well marked and staffed course. Loved it. Your volunteers ROCKED. Pictures-well done.Marsha
Vigor Team...I don't think you could improve on your race. I had the BEST time ever. I recently started running in December and decided that I was done with the 5K's and chose your 10K for my first. The course was BEAUTIFUL, the police patrol was appreciated, the medals were great, the shirts bright and fantastic. I had the BEST time ever. I am so looking forward to next year and doing the HALF marathon. I was lucky enough to place 1st place for my age (hope there was more than one in my age group...haha)...Either way, had amazing time. Thanks so much for helping me enjoy my running even more. I am HIGHLY recommending your races!Kristen
Just wanted to leave my feedback for the race. I enjoyed it very much and enjoyed my PR and winning my age group even more!! I really liked how you were able to get Solitude to open their building for us to stay in rather than have to sit outside in the cold for over an hour. That was great! Though I am not a coffee drinker, having coffee and hot chocolate available was also a nice touch.Rayna
I did the 10K and I loved everything about this race! The course was perfect and I thought this seemed like the most organized and well put together race I've been to. I would definitely like to see more races similar to this. Thanks for a great experience!Jessie
I have run several 1/2 marathons including many here in Utah as well as Arizona and Nevada. The Vigor Big Cottonwood Canyon race on 11 May was one of the best I have run. I will run this race again. The logistics were first class. The post-race scene was like a much larger race. You have a good thing going on here and I will bring friends next year.Eric
My son Fulton ( Creed ) Norman (5k) and I traveled from Florida just to run the races ( I ran the half ) and it was the most amazing trip of our lives. Utah is so beautiful! The races were well run, the Hyatt was a great race partner (!) and we have nothing but praise. Downhill running is painful for a flat surface South Florida runner, ( as you warned me) but the view was so gorgeous and the racers so friendly, and the sponsors so awesome ... It was worth the pain. I have run many races but this was the best race I have ever run in terms of the overall experience! We will be talking about this race for the rest of our lives. Seriously. Thank you!Brittany
Just wanted to share that, as a veteran of many road races, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Vigor Utah. You provided an incredible race day experience. Well organized, well-coordinated and lots of fun. I came from San Diego to race and I can truly say that my fellow participants were among the friendliest, creating the most supportive climate I have ever enjoyed on a race. Even a police officer gave me a "high five"! Well done. I will be back next year!Inez
