Dear REVEL Big Cottonwood Runners,

On behalf of our City, I welcome you to Cottonwood Heights. We are thrilled that our beautiful and vibrant community will once again play host to this world-class event. Your experience here is sure to be among the best of all races you have run.

Incorporated in 2005, Cottonwood Heights has quickly become known as a progressive community and a very desirable place to live and visit.  Soon after our incorporation as a city, Money Magazine recognized us as one of the 100 most desirable places to live for a city our size in the United States.  We are proud partners of the REVEL Big Cottonwood Marathon and Half as it provides us an opportunity to showcase the beauty and uniqueness of our thriving community.  

Much like the race you are about to run, our City prides itself on offering top tier services to our residents and visitors. We are home to more than 1,500 businesses, several of which are among the Fortune 500. I encourage you to patronize these businesses as much as possible during your visit. When choosing your restaurants, entertainment, and other purchases, please consider selecting from among the myriad options available to you right here in Cottonwood Heights.

I wish you the best of luck in your upcoming race and hope that you will enjoy your visit to our City as much as we enjoy hosting you and your supporters.


Mayor Michael J. Peterson
