Range 2 River Relay

The third-annual Range 2 River Relay, on May 12th, is an active transportation 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. The first teammate bikes the path of City Creek, continuing as the creek flows underground into the stormwater system. This leg ends at the creek's confluence with the Jordan River, the historic Utah State Fairpark property. 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 runs past native riparian vegetation and invasive invaders, finishing back at the Utah State Fairpark. Come learn about local causes and enjoy bites, drinks, and tunes at the Finish Line Celebration. Spectators watch as participants finish the bike leg, start the boat leg, and come into the finish line on the final running leg. Cheer on your favorite team as they finish the race. Make sure to stay for the crowning of this years' Range 2 River Relay champions!
