Run for The Road Home
On Sunday, Sept. 30, The Road Home—a nonprofit agency that assists families and individuals experiencing homelessness in our community—and Log Haven restaurant (6451 E. Millcreek Canyon Road, Log-Haven.com) will host a 6K fun run called Stairway to Log Haven. Runners will depart from the Olympus Hills shopping center (3900 S. Wasatch Blvd., Salt Lake City) at 8 a.m. and proceed up Millcreek Canyon to Log Haven for a complimentary breakfast. Runners will then be shuttled back down the canyon. Participants are encouraged to sport black ties or short running skirts. Runners are also asked to bring nonperishable foods, hygiene products or clothing items to donate to The Road Home. There’s a $30 registration fee, and all proceeds benefit The Road Home. Register at Sports-AM.com.
A number of Park City restaurants will be participating in Harvest in the Mountains from Oct. 1 through Oct. 14. Restaurants including Buona Vita, Lespri Prime Steak & Sushi, Deer Valley Grocery-Cafe, Grub Steak Restaurant, Red Rock Junction, Wasatch Brew Pub and Windy Ridge Bakery will create special fall menus in celebration of the autumn harvest and the farmers and producers who supply our local eateries, as well as offering big discounts on meals. According to Park City Area Restaurant Association Executive Director Ginger Ries, “Harvest in the Mountains gives us a chance to recognize all those who work unseen, often dozens of miles from Park City’s restaurants, who are nonetheless so crucial to our professional chefs and kitchens.” Visit ParkCityRestaurants.com for more information.
