Objective

The Pay It Forward 5k/1 mile Challenge is a community event hosted by the Payson City Employee Wellness Committee. It is our way to Pay It Forward to the community. The event is open to EVERYONE ... all ages and abilities. You do not have to live in Payson to participate.  

The registration fee is kept low to encourage as many participants as possible to join in the fun. Each participant receives a medal, certificate and name in a drawing. The fun run/walk is held to encourage all ages and abilities to become more active. In efforts to help families afford to participate together, we have kept the registration fee to a $1 per person.


After the run/walk participants receive their medal packet, fruit, water and enjoy a local band performance while waiting for the prize drawing announcement. This event has become a community event and draws over 1000 participants. 

Many hours spent on preparing for the event are volunteered by employees, residents and students from High Schools and Junior High Schools in Payson and Salem.
