This was my third St. George Marathon and it was as good as ever. I ran it in 2010 in average (hot) conditions, in 2015 in very hot conditions, and this year (2018) in rainy and cool conditions. Each year the experience was awesome. St. George Marathon and the community there operate this event like a well oiled machine.

– Great expo for a mid-size race
– Bus loading was a cinch
– Tons of port-a-potties at the start
– Fire pits, space blankets and hot drinks at the start
– Plenty of road to warm up prior to the race
– Great rendition of National Anthem
– The start was late but this is, I think, was a complication of the weather and tons of people taking later buses.
– The course is scenic and perfect for a negative split (which I have achieved every time here)
– Aid stations are well stocked and volunteers are trained
– The finish line area is one of the best I have experienced
– Beautiful medal and ok SWAG
– Space blankets at the finish
– Massages and medal engraving at the finish

In short, this is the most organized and best large/midsize marathon in Utah. If you want a more intimate experience the best small marathon in Utah is Morgan Valley, hands down, but for the big event experience there is no beating St. George. And if you are in the BQ hunt I would not choose Revel Big Cottonwood over this race. If you run it right (negative split strategy) St. George is faster (and easier on your legs) than Big Cottonwood. IMO.

One of the best marathon experiences I have had. The field size was small (+- 100), the spectators few, and the course incredibly beautiful. A lot of the race it was me, the course and nature. I loved that. The course is an honest course, which is refreshing considering most races here in Utah are screaming downhill.

The pre-race meal was great, the logistics easy (starts and ends in the same place), the SWAG good (beanie, nice shirt and nice medal), it was chip-timed, the course support was great (they even had a roaming aid station on an ATV), and the volunteers were well-trained.

This race would be great for a 50-stater looking for their Utah race. It is the only time I will get to both BQ and come in 4th overall! I must admit I loved that. I can’t say enough about how nice it was to run this marathon. I will be back.
