The Sun Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K is just outside of St. George, Utah, finishing in the city of Santa Clara and Ivins. This race fills the need of a long run to break up the Winter Blues in a warm Spring like area of Utah's Dixie. The race starts in Veyo, Utah and runs down the Gunlock Road to Santa Clara. The route passes Gunlock Reservior and Southern Utah beauty. This is a Boston Qualifier during the off season so if you missed qualifying for Boston the year prior your training will be good towards this season or it would be great to kick off your marathon running season on a good downhill course.
This race is a tribute race for Dr. John Coles who ran his last marathon at the age of 80 years old (STG Marathon). He left a legacy of running for his family and countless others. He was never over the hill but on it.
