Rated by Runner's World as one of the four "Marathons to Build a Vacation Around" in the World. Included in Runner's World 10 Most Scenic and Fastest Marathons and Top 20 Marathons in the USA. The St. George Marathon is a point-to-point race which is USA Track & Field Certified and Sanctioned. Runner's World listed the St. George Marathon as the fastest fall marathon. A fun race and extremely scenic! It begins in the majestic Pine Valley mountains and descends nearly 2600 ft., through scenic southwest Utah, to the beautiful Worthern Park.
All runners are required to ride buses to the start unless camping in Pine Valley, staying in Cedar City, or driving the alternate route from Cedar City thru Enterprise. Runners board buses at Worthen Park, 250 S. 400 E., St. George, and must show numbers to board. Buses depart beginning at 4:00 a.m.
Remember: we are on MOUNTAIN DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME (MST), Las Vegas and Mesquite (Nevada) are not - so adjust watches accordingly. The last bus will leave as close to 5:40 as possible. The time window to get 90 buses to the start is very tight; please help us start on time - take an early bus! Fires will be provided for warmth at start.
You can fly to St. George from anywhere in the world. We recommend flying United Airlines to Los Angeles and the United Express to St. George, or - Delta Airlines to Salt Lake City and the Delta Connection to St. George. Those flying into Las Vegas can rent a car or private shuttle buses offer services from Las Vegas & Mesquite to St. George and back.
