The Love Your Body race was created five years ago by Wasatch Woman magazine for women who care about their health, fitness, community, friends, and families. By treating yourself well, you’re able to achieve your personal best and be an inspiration to others. Be part of the largest women-only run in Utah. Over 2000 participants are expected to be in attendance at this event. Part of the proceeds will go to the new Thanksgiving Point children’s museum, The Museum of Natural Curiosity. We’ll also be making a donation to the Girl Scouts of Utah.
The 10k run and 6K (3.72 miles) run/walk, will include a portion of the beautiful Gardens at Thanksgiving Point. The course will be flat and fast and will be the perfect run to finish the season if you are looking to set a final personal record. You will establish healthy fitness habits going into fall and winter by training for this event and you’ll feel great for participating. We encourage you to bring your families along for support. There will be plenty for the kids and family to do at Electric Park where we will start and finish the race.
Ogden City hosts the second annual Winterfest downtown Historic 25th Street & Washington Blvd, January 28 and 29th.

The celebration where “Cold is Cool” boasts traditional and unconventional snow activities for all ages. Most events are free.
Events will begin on Friday afternoon with a ceremonial street closing on Washington Boulevard followed by a toboggan parade. Activities and contests will be held all day on Saturday.

Human Dog Sled Races
Polar Bear Swim
Snowmobile Street Races
Doggie Costume Contest

And many more . . .
Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about the little ones. We’ve put together some free projects and events with the younger kids in mind:
The hill just east of Washington Boulevard on 25th Street will be available for tubing and sledding on Saturday morning and afternoon.
Snowshoeing around Municipal Park will be available all day Saturday.
Piles of snow will be hauled into the Municipal Park for the children to decorate and make snowmen on both Friday night and Saturday morning and afternoon.
The kid’s corner on Saturday will have a small construction project for each child that wishes to participate.
