To enliven the competition this year, the Ephraim Youth City Council is adding a vibrant twist to the Fun Run called “Color Me Viking.” At your request, you can be coated with powdered paint in Scandinavian colors and end the race in “rad” style.
Pre-register online at scandinavianheritagefestival.org to be guaranteed a fun run t-shirt. Registration is $10, which includes your race number and t-shirt. If you don’t meet the online registration deadline, you can register onsite at the Snow College Stake Center starting at 6 a.m. on Saturday.
