Vigor (vig’er) n. 1) Active strength of body and mind   2) strength, energy or force; the ability to survive and grow


We were born and raised at the base of the Cottonwood Canyons and have made these canyons our home. As active outdoor enthusiasts we wanted to create events where others could enjoy these beautiful mountains…this is how Vigor Utah was born.


Our fathers served in the military and instilled the importance of the love for our country, and respect for the men and women who have served and currently serve our nation. This is why it is important for us to support the military and American manufacturing and our economy.


Our goal at Vigor Utah, is America and Utah first. It is our intention by 2019 to have 100% of all products provided at Vigor events to be made locally. This includes: sponsors, shirts manufactured, medals manufactured (by Dynabuckle), local businesses supporting the finish line, etc. This may keep our product (bling) smaller, but please keep in mind it cost us more to bring Utah’s own products to you. Our hope is you would prefer to support our local economy with a smaller finisher medal, than support other nations by sporting the biggest medal out there. Either way, Vigor Utah appreciates your support!

Organization we love and support

Operation Bald Eagle

Vigor Utah is overwhelmed with the sacrifice of our military. Operation Bald Eagle is about serving the men and women who serve to protect us in their time of need. We believe that these patriot's and their immediate families should be honored by their service to our communities and our country. It is because of these patriot's that our nation is what it is today. We are committed to being a 911 response to our heroes when called upon. For this reason Vigor Utah is a proud supporter of Operation Bald Eagle.

Cottonwood Canyons Foundation

All of Vigor Utah’s events are currently in the Wasatch Mountains. Cottonwood Canyon Foundation is a nonprofit organization with a mission to continuously improve the environment of Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons... We support and appreciate this cause.

The Rock Church

Vigor Utah is a proud supporter of The Rock Church. We appreciate The Rocks Christian values, community services, and global outreach. Vigor Utah sponsors an annual 5K charity run. 100% of the proceeds go to the Rock Church.
