Tips and Helps for the 50/20

Powerpoint Presentation


*     Build confidence and determination as our youth prove to themselves that they can ‘DO HARD THINGS'
*     Build stronger relationships in their families and quorum.
*     Help our youth follow the example of the Savior in courage, determination, and finishing.

This is about staying power and determination.  Being able to keep going when it gets tough and hard------ is what this is all about.  Be tough and endure it well and remember that “YOU CAN DO HARD THINGS"

September 14th and 15th The Utah National Parks Council is sponsoring a great event called the 50/20.  It is 50 miles in 20 hours and you can make it by walking all the way if you wish.  You can come one or come as a group.  We will be starting on the 14th from 3-6:30 p.m. at the Utah Lake State Park at the Provo River Trailhead, walking on that trail to the mouth of Provo Canyon, where we will walk west and connect onto the Murdock Canal Trail almost over to the Alpine Highway and back.  Participants will have a wrist band put on them at that time and they will return along that same path.  Along the way there will be 22 aid stations, with professional medical personnel, that will have water and advice for the participants.  Those stations are also where parents and others can join in the walk, support, feed, and aid their youth in this event.   Restrooms and commercial business are along the path for use and refreshment.  We encourage groups to do it together, but doing it individually works as well.  Parents and leaders of boys are more than encouraged to participate (all or part way) with your youth.  For the back half of this event, that support will make all the difference in the world.  Those completing the event within the the 20 hours will receive a quality key chain.


Late registration will begin Saturday, September 8th at 1:00 am, using this link below (or you can late register at the starting area the day of the event):
