SOUTHERN UTAH – With its majestic scenery and friendly climate, open land and gracious communities, Southern Utah offers many races, runs and walks throughout the year. These include everything from easy walks and kids’ tromps, 5Ks, 10Ks and marathons to triathlons. Some are fiercely competitive; others casual, colorful and some are even muddy and dirty. Utah’s Dixie is prime ground for an endorphine charge and great fun to visit, participate, spectate and volunteer.
