Update June 24th, 2020

We wanted to update everyone as we know the current national standard is continuously changing. We are still monitoring the situation closely and working with our local, state, and public safety officials. 

Since the onset, this continues to be a very fluid situation, and we are closely monitoring our state guidelines as well as neighboring states as they begin to reopen and the guidelines they have set in place. While we understand the benefits that this event has on our community, we also think it is important to be responsible members of our health community.

We recognize this is not just our event as organizers, it’s the thousands of those who are already registered as well as those who have participated over the past 44 years. Keeping that in mind, we would like to hear from you. If interested, we welcome you to complete the following survey regarding the 2020 race as it relates to the pandemic: St George Marathon Pandemic Survey

We are working every day to make sure we understand the external factors and what they could mean. We are preparing to ensure that we can safely hold the race or be able to provide each runner unique options outside of our standard event policies in case we are not able to hold it.

As many of you have begun your training journeys this past month and are seeing some other fall events be canceled, we know that you are looking for answers as to what our race will look like. 

We look forward to October and are very hopeful we will celebrate our 44th year with each of you and the bonds we share through this great sport.

For now, we want to encourage each of you to stay safe and stay motivated.

 

Update May 1st, 2020

We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) pandemic, and are in regular communication with our city and county agency partners. At this time, there are no scheduling alterations planned for our upcoming events. We will continue to monitor this rapidly changing situation with the direction of local and state officials, and any updates to our events will be posted on our website and communicated through as many other channels possible. There will be no change fee if the event is canceled due to COVID - 19 cancellation.

Historically, we have not given out any transfers, deferrals, or refunds. With the current situation this year (2020) that we are in, we will allow refunds if the marathon committee and City Council cancel the race due to COVID-19 if your registration allows. We are accepting transfers and deferrals and will encourage many runners to be involved with us in our future years. But, we do understand the current circumstances and are willing to work with each of our runners.
