How Run the Slam Works

Run the Slam is a half marathon competition.  You run 4, you’ve completed the Slam.

  • Which Races are in the Slam?

    • Tulip Festival Half Marathon
    • Alpine Classic Half Marathon
    • Utah Valley Half Marathon
    • AF Canyon Half Marathon
    • Timpanogos Half Marathon
    • Nebo Half Marathon
    • Haunted Half Marathon

  • What do participants get?

    • Medals for each race
      (1 race medal, 1 RTS medal)
    • A finishers shirt
    • A plaque that the medals fit into
      (purchase separate)
    • Discounts off the race registration fees

  • How does timing work?

    • If you run 4 races, you’ve completed the Slam.
    • If you run 5 races we take the average of your 4 fastest times.
    • If you run 6 races, we take the average of your 4 fastest times and subtract 2 minutes.
    • You are ranked against your age division and all participants.

  • How are winners determined?

  • The top three men and women with the fastest overall time are the winners. This is determined at the very end of the season after all races are completed and times are calculated.

    Medals are awarded to the Overall and Age Division Winners the following season at the Thanksgiving Point Race.

  • What do the winners get?

  • Overall winners get:

    • Custom trophy with name and time
    • Free entry into Run the Slam next year

    • Age Division Medal
    • Free entry into Run the Slam next year
