We’re excited for this year’s event and we know you are excited too! This year, we will be starting and finishing at Cherry Street Park. 115 E Cherry Street in Grantsville, Utah. Some have asked why all the way out west again? Well, it's simple, really. With the new construction on the corridor in Davis County, combined with Antelope Island State Park no longer allowing events of any kind to be held on the causeway or Island, the roads out west are safer, the hills are great, the people of Grantsville are amazing to work with!
