St George Marathon (UT)- Magic Course, Magic Day

A week ago a group of Park City and Houston running friends trekked to Southern Utah for the spectacular St George Marathon. Not my fastest by a few minutes but a very satisfactory 3:33 on a cool, sunny day perfect conditions for this desert course. Almost the whole gang got Boston Qualifiers or PR's.

It was cold and dark at the start, high 30's, but the incredible organizers light up at least a 100 campfires for the 7600 runners. Perfect.

Several of us were sporting the adidas Energy Boost (my review here)  and CEP compression sleeves. All these feet got a Boston qualifier and one got a  PR. No blisters, no cramps with plenty of responsive cushion for the long, steep downhills.

The gang gets together for the group photos:

St George has been voted the best organized marathon and one of the most scenic and fastest. While it can get very hot, this year the conditions were ideal. A bucket list race for every marathoner.
