St. George Marathon: A Boston Marathon Qualifier!
We are looking forward to watching the St. George Marathon on Highway 18 at 500 North in Veyo before the break of day tomorrow! We will be holding up signs and cheering for each and every athlete that passes through.
In 1977, 42 athletes were at the starting line in the inaugural St. George Marathon, 38 runners finished. Who knew it would go on to be a Boston Marathon qualifier? What an amazing way to experience southern Utah!
We cheer on every runner until the last one passes by!
