St. George Utah

St. George is a city of superlatives. It boasts some of the state’s most extreme temperatures and was actually home to the hottest day ever recorded. It’s surrounded by some of the reddest rock you’ll ever see. And aside from the crowded cities of the Wasatch Front, it’s the largest city in the state.

Of course, it’s features like these that make St. George so desirable. While most of the state’s residents freeze in the winter, St. George enjoys about 300 sunny days a year. Even in the midst of wintry December days, the average temperature is above 40 degrees. Think of what that kind of sunniness and warmth could do for your outdoor adventures.

St. George also offers the chance to leave the congestion of the state’s urban corridor and escape to a city where openness abounds. Sure, St. George has been growing at an intense rate, but it still feels less crowded than a city like Murray, which has 30,000 fewer residents.

As most runners know, St. George hosts one of the largest marathons in the country. It attracts thousands of competitors each year and has been called one of the country’s “10 Most Scenic Marathons” by Runner's World.

For those who are more intrigued by nightlife than running, Las Vegas is just a short drive down the highway.
