The 5K 'Holy War'

For once, fans will have a chance to be more than spectators in Utah’s notorious “Holy War” between BYU and UofU.

Salt Lake Running Company is going to take the schism to the streets with a 5K alleged “fun” run. U hooligans and Y zealots are invited to prove their loyalty with their feet.

“We’re having a little fun with rivalry week,” says Running Company owner Guy Perry, who apparently has little idea of the mayhem he may be unleashing. “We’re expecting hundreds of loyal Utes and BYU fans to go head-to-head in this fun run.”


Come in your sacred-red or sanctified-blue running gear to Sugar House Park Saturday Sept. 3 at 8 a.m.

The details: Register in advance for $25 (regular price is $40) until Sunday, Aug. 28.  Register at For more information call Salt Lake Running Company at 801-484-9144 or email

May your Heavenly Father/Mother/In-laws have mercy on your soul.
