From Superman to Wonder Woman to Batman, the Justice League was ready to fight crime at Heritage Park on Aug. 10. 

Just not the ones you might be thinking. 

More than 180 kids and adults turned out for South Jordan’s Superhero 5K and Kids 1 miler where all ages dressed in their favorite superhero costumes as they raced around the park. 

Racers native to places such as Denmark, Australia and Herriman in addition to local South Jordan residents took place in the second year of the 5K. 

The fun run serves as a community appreciation event, said Recreation Coordinator Brad Vaske, and the superhero theme gives them an excuse to dress up.
