Race Information

If you are looking for a great experience for a Halloween themed race, you have found the right event! The First Dam Scary Run has been going for close to 40 years and is a local favorite!

The 5K and 10K will take you along the leaf covered streets of 'The Island' in Logan, Utah. The 10K takes you up to and along First Dam (thus the race name) at the mouth of beautiful Logan Canyon while the 5K winds through the streets of this old community. Participants recently have ranged from 3 yrs. old to 80 years old, representing just about every age in that range, so this is an event for all!
