Cancelled - Salt Lake Santa Run
It is with great regret that we made the decision to cancel the SLC Santa Run. The other 3 Santa Runs are doing great for participation and already have a much higher participation than this the earliest Santa Run in SLC. We have been doing the Salt Lake Santa Run for the last 4 years and in 2016 we decided to cancel it due to lack of participation. We feel it is due to a number of factors not limited to but including us setting up four Santa Runs in 2016. We have seen a major increase in one of the new ones so that may have played a major factor in the lack of participants. If you registered for for this race and want to know what your options are regarding your registration they are listed here.
We never like cancelling a race but we have learned that it is better to cancel a race due to lack of participants than to have it. Financially SLC is the most expensive to produce and it is the smallest for participants but it is not about the financial side of it. We have found that races run with extremely low participants have a lack of energy and though the support may be the same for a larger race participants do not like them as much. Runners are looking for high participant races with high energy and based on numbers this would not have fit for them so not financially playing a factor but for the sake of the runners and fun these races bring we have decided to cancel SLC. Again the other 3 Santa Runs are doing great and will be high energy for the runners. We have donated to the Discovery Gateway from some of the other races even though this race will not be held here in 2016. We wish the Gateway Mall all the success in the world with their new ownership as well and hope many of you will attend the Light Up the Night Ceremony this Saturday.
