Relay Race Gives Unprecedented Access to Park City As It Raises Critical Funds for Public Schools

On May 21, 2022, you can join hundreds of runners (mostly teams, but a number of solo runners will go for that 26.4 mile distance!) as they explore Park City in a way that is otherwise impossible. 

The terrain varies from single-track to smooth pavement; challenging climbs to fast downhills; easy portions for beginners and, well, not so easy ones for the experts…


#RWE2022 will take runners: 

  • 🏅 Around & through Olympic venues, like those (in)famous stairs at Utah Olympic Park!
  • 🎒 Past 6 local schools, where there are such fun exchanges, you may forget you have a race to finish!
  • 🏔️ Through the heart of Park City, amid iconic landmarks and majestic vistas that make it one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.
  • 🎉 And finally, to the legendary Finish Line Celebration, where you get to experience the full flavor of Park City and all the awesomeness it has to offer!

Almost 20 years ago PROBAR began making and selling delicious, on-the-go plant based food in Park City, UT.

PROBAR believes strongly in supporting our local community. 

As Utah has the lowest per pupil spending in the country PROBAR has been a longstanding proud supporter of the Park City Education Foundation to help fund our schools.

RWE is a relay race fundraiser for the Park City Education Foundation (PCEF). For nearly 40 years, the non-profit has raised money for Park City students, teachers, and schools.


Q:
Park City is the wealthiest micropolitan area in the country – so why don’t its schools have the money they need? 

A:
Because Utah has the lowest per-pupil education funding in the entire nation.
PLUS, 96% of Park City’s state-collected education tax dollars leave town to even things up around the state. 

The good news:
PCEF supporters are changing that equation!

PCEF funds programs to ensure all Park City students (more than 20% are eligible for free-and-reduced lunch) have access to educational opportunities. Things like PCSD’s groundbreaking K-12 coding program; high-quality affordable preschool; and afterschool care that works for working parents.

And when you fundraise for PCEF’s Running with Ed, you can be eligible for uniquely Park City gifts, tickets, and swag – all donated by our incredible RWE sponsors!

 

Running with Ed hits the starting line on May 21, 2022. Join us and see why RWE has been voted Park City’s Favorite Fundraiser and Sporting event for eight years in a row!
