ST. GEORGE, Utah, Aug. 11, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — This year’s St. George Marathon has been cancelled amid COVID-19 concerns, officials said Tuesday.

“Based on further conversations with and direction from local authorities, including medical, health and safety leaders in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in the best interest of our St. George marathon community, the St. George Marathon and Mini Marathon will not take place in 2020,” said a Facebook post Tuesday afternoon.

“In what has been a continually evolving and challenging time globally, we recognize that this may come as a disappointment, but assure you that our commitment to our athletes and the success of our sport is stronger than ever.”

The next marathon will now be held on Oct. 2, 2021.
