Heart Disease is the leading cause of death in the United States causing 26 percent of all deaths. McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden, Utah is doing something about it. Each year McKay-Dee serves over 23,000 patients in its Heart Services Department. It is on the cutting edge of technology and innovative care practices. The Classic Race is a fundraiser to benefit these services in all of the communities McKay-Dee serves. All proceeds from this event go directly back into the community for technology, education and raising awareness about heart issues.
McKay-Dee Hospital and the McKay-Dee Hospital Foundation operates as non-profit 501(c)(3) institutions. That means that we don't have shareholders or stock options. Instead, our profits and charitable donations are used to enhance our ability to provide improved facilities, education and leading-edge technologies to our patients and the communities we serve.
Come join us at Northern Utah's premier 10k/5k event and help us raise awareness Heart Disease and make a difference in the number of families it affects each year.

The Classic is an event for all ages and abilities. Our sponsors help us put on an event that is both family friendly and challenging - not to mention full of participant benefits (i.e. we've got great prizes, including our long-sleeve dri-fit race shirts)! This year in addition to our 10k and 5k run/walks we have an excellent KidsK event sponsored by the Intermountain Live program. Each KidsK participant will receive a cotton t-shirt.
