Quality time with his children — that’s what 37-year-old Lehi resident, Ben Hooley, wanted for his birthday.
So, after 37 miles, 3,071 feet of elevation gain and 7 hours, 14 minutes, 55 seconds, he got what he was looking for and a little more.
Hooley loves to run and he loves his children. When his 37th birthday approached, he decided he wanted to run 37 miles to commemorate the milestone. When his two youngest kids, Gehrig, 5, and Emma, 3, expressed a desire to join him, Hooley said he just couldn’t say no.
