Run4Fun Trail
Kaysville, UT, United States

This is a local favorite section with amazing views, 3 bridges, 1 creek traveling over rocks, uphill approximately 900 ft gain +/- depending on your devise. The trail is 100% dirt and starts at the Kaysville Wilderness area and goes to Fernwood and back. (You can check reviews on All Trails) The trail is only mildly technical and you could run in road shoes if you do not mind getting them dirty, or trail shoes preferred. It has beautiful scenery and is a fun area to run (I run it personally often).

What you need to know about Running Events

Running is the world’s most accessible sport. Park runs, colour runs, 5k, 10k, half marathons, marathons and ultras — all you need is a pair of trainers and off you go. Running events are hugely popular on Let’s Do This and it’s a sociable sport, so get some friends involved and achieve something extraordinary.

If you’re starting small, the 5k and 10k events are great fun and definitely worth doing even if you’re training for a bigger challenge further down the line. Getting used to the atmosphere of an event is important. You’re so much more likely to hit a better time if there’s a crowd cheering you on, people in fancy dress and a big celebration at the finish line.

Find local Running races

Today, with international organisations, local clubs and national events to choose from, there are thousands of races to discover, and we want to help you find them quickly and easily. Below you’ll find selections by running type, running location and some exceptional events to take part in.
