The Rail Trail will be awash with costumed runners on Monday morning for the Miners Day Funky 5K run, beginning and ending at City Park.
The race, which begins at 8 a.m., encourages runners to don their most outlandish costumes and hit the trail.
"It's a great time with Park City locals dressed up in crazy costumes," race director Ed Knapp said. "Anybody can dress any way they want and have a great time."
Knapp said he'll be at the event dressed as Elvis, adding that he hopes others will follow his lead.
"We would really hope that everyone would come out in costume," he said.
The Funky 5K is the first scheduled activity for Miners Day, Knapp said. He encourages everyone to come get a quick workout before heading off to the pancake breakfast and the Running of the Balls.
"We're the first event to kick things off," he said. "The awards will be given out at 9 a.m., so people will be able to get out of there really easily and join in many of the other great events."
For the third year in a row, the Funky 5K will support Arts-Kids, a group that uses arts to help develop well-rounded youths.
Registration is open at arts-kids.org. Online registration is $25 for adults and $15 for kids. Race day registration is available, but an extra $5 will be added onto each fee.
Knapp said organizers are expecting 150 to 200 runners to participate, with plenty of great prizes available. All runners will receive Funky 5K T-shirts and goodie bags.
"We end up giving out a lot of bling," he said.
Additionally, Knapp said, the race will be timed this year.
"We're offering a measured 5K, with bibs and chip timing," he said. "When somebody crosses the finish line, they'll know exactly what their time is."
Knapp said that no matter what a runner's skill level may be, everyone is more than welcome to join the Funky 5K festivities.
"It's a great way to start Miners Day," he said. "We'll take people who are serious and people who are casual runners. It's a great race for both."
