"The best 5K race in Utah!
The GLA Memorial 5K course offers runners a scenic tour through the best of Morgan. June is the perfect time to come
out and enjoy the cool, crisp mountain Morgan air. The Anderson family does a superb job in staging the race and honoring
the memory of their patriarch, Gerald L. Anderson. It’s an honor to run the race and all of us at Striders feel
privileged in supporting the event year after year. It’s such great cause for the city of Morgan, its Historical
Society and the memory of Gerald; we wouldn’t miss it for the world."

only is the Gerald Anderson Memorial the best race in Morgan, it is also the best race I have ever run!!! The atmosphere
is great and I always seem to do good on race day."

"The Gerald Anderson Memorial 5K was an inspiration to me. I was
the fact that I was beaten by 6-5 guys in high tops. I was
inspired by the fact that I was beaten by women who out
weighed me and I
out heighted them. I was inspired by the fact that the whole affair was
indeed a family affair!
Keep up the good work. See you next time!"
Dan Walker-- Weber State University Track and Field Head
"I owe everything that is good in my life to the Gerald Anderson Memorial

Nathan Murdock--Syracuse, UT (By
way of Morgan, UT)
Gerald Anderson Memorial 5K is one of the best 5K’s in Utah. Not only do you get to run through the picturesque town
of Morgan, the course is fantastic. It offers a nice little rolling hill but the rest is lightning fast and flat. Brad and
Amber do a great job in generating sponsorship support that provides participants with the best post-race raffle I have ever
seen. I never win at race raffles but I have won there. If you are looking for a fun race that is managed by runners that
know what runners are looking for, this is the race."
Kurt Black—Layton, UT—(All-American Steeple chase
runner at Weber State University-Former Professional runner)
"By far the best race I have ever run. You can tell that these guys are REAL runners by the way they
put on this race. The course is great. Knowing these guys the alternate course this year will be great. Gerald would be honored.
It's no wonder this race attracts so many people from out of town."
