Launch Team

Launch Team is Gearing Up For Another Season

The Launch Team is a youth running program that trains youth 18 and younger to run the REVEL Big Cottonwood Half Marathon. Training starts in June in one of three locations in Salt Lake and Utah County. Sign up as a youth runner or volunteer coach.

The Launch Team helped me learn to love running, and learn to love and appreciate my body! I was hesitant at first, I really didn't necessarily want to run a half marathon, or even think I could, but my mom convinced me to do it. I am so glad I did! I learned so much, and made some great friends, and I am excited to do it again this year and crush some new goals!
