The Mormon Mile will be held at the This is the Place Heritage Park, in Salt Lake City, on Labor Day, Sept. 1, 2008, at 8 a.m. The park is locatedat 2601 East Sunnyside Avenue.
This race is designed to be family friendly with a special family rate, and will wind throughout the Park, starting at the Smoot House, and finishing at the Brigham Young Home at the West end of the Park.
