I’m very excited to announce that I am a sponsor for the 42nd annual 2018 St. George Marathon!
Deep in southwest Utah — the desert town of St. George hosts what “Runner’s World” has called one of only four “Marathons to Build a Vacation Around” in the world.
The St. George Marathon is one of the fastest courses on the USA Track and Field certified list, and was included in “Runner’s World” as one one of the “Top 10 Most Scenic and Fastest Marathons,” and “Top 20 Marathons in the USA.” It begins in the majestic Pine Valley mountains and descends nearly 2,600 feet through southwest Utah, to the beautiful Vernon Worthen Park.
Personally, the St. George Marathon will always have such a special place in my heart! While I’ve never run it, for nearly 3 years, I worked as the assistant to the Race Operations Manager and Program Coordinator for the Move It! Events. This gave me countless opportunities to meet so many incredible people in our local running community, and to hear and see many inspirational stories from around the world.
Move It! first began as a fitness program that was run in conjunction with the Washington County School District, and was implemented into every elementary school in the district. I worked with over 50 marathon runners who volunteered to visit their schools each week to get children up and moving!
We then decided to take it a step further, and I was able to participate in the creation of the Move It! Kids Race and the I Am Able aspect of the St. George Marathon, that is an exclusive race for those of all abilities that is still running strong today.
Working with the St. George Marathon, also gave me the once in a lifetime opportunity to travel to Ibigawa, Japan where the marathon's sister race is held each year in November. The life-changing experience of visiting Ibigawa is a memory I will never forget.
Needless to say, I LOVE this race!
There is something so amazing about seeing hundreds of runners at the start line, huddled around fires in the beauty of the mountains, and then just a few short hours later watch people from all over the world, with every type of body, and age triumphantly cross the finish line.
I couldn’t be more excited to be involved again this year, and helping runner’s plan their vacations to our gorgeous city, as well as their vacations before and after the big day!
