ST. GEORGE – The clouds may have been threatening to rain Saturday morning, but that didn’t dampen the mood at the Snow Canyon Half Marathon, 5K, and Tuff Kids Races. Spirits were as high as the winds as half-marathon runners followed the 13.1 mile course that goes through Snow Canyon State Park and ends at Snow Canyon High School in St. George.
The half marathon was named one of the top in the nation by Runner’s World Magazine in 2014 and attracts runners from all over the country to run the mostly downhill, scenic course that winds through the park.
Around 2,000 runners showed up for the race.
