St. George Marathon Events  //  Move It! Events


The St. George Marathon is proud to present our Marathon Move IT! Events. Three chances to cross the Marathon finish line without running the entire 26.2 miles. Two events, I AM ABLE and the Marathon Move IT! Kids Run will start the weekend off on Friday evening at Vernon Worthen Park (300 E 300 S) beginning at 6:00 pm. Two distances will be available for each event, 1 mile and 200 meters. The I AM ABLE run, walk or roll event is for persons with disabilities of all ages. Each participant is required to have one person without disabilities accompany them from the start to finish line. The Marathon Move IT! Kids Run will follow, and is a kids ONLY event, no parents allowed. Following both events the Party in the Park will start! Participants and their families will have the chance to dance with Waddles the Penguin to music by a live D.J., win prizes, play in the bounce houses, get their face painted, and much more! The party will start after the races and will go until 8:00 pm. The night before the Marathon is turning into a big race celebration!

The third event on Saturday morning is for your ENTIRE family; the 29th annual Mayor's Walk hosted by the ST. GEORGE EXCHANGE CLUB and sponsored by State Bank of Southern Utah and Planet 94.1. Be one of the 1,200 participants in the exciting St. George Marathon experience as we walk to the St. George Marathon finish line with Mayor Jon Pike, business associates, school mates, friends and family. The Mayor’s Walk begins on Saturday at 6:45 a.m. at Sand Town Park (700 N Bluff Street), and follows Diagonal Street to Main Street to 300 South, ending at the finish line at Vernon Worthen Park (350 E 300 S). Walkers must finish by 8:00 am to ensure an open course for the Marathon’s Wheelchair Division.
