St. George Marathon 39th Year And Going Strong

The St. George Marathon finished their 39th year and the winner was St. George native Aaron Metler. Metler also ran the Enterprise Cornfest in 2012 and won the 10k with a time of 31:55. Amber Holt Green won the women’s division and she is from Brookside.

The St. George Marathon started in 1977 with just under 60 runners and with word of mouth and the attention of several star runners the numbers grew. The Marathon can take up to 7,400 runners and the numbers of entries this year was 5,464 entries.

The Marathon is the 1st Saturday of October and is the popular choice for those looking for fast Fall marathon times. The course drops nearly a half mile in elevation from start to finish with a few uphills along the course. It is currently the 13th largest marathon in the United States and race times are used by many participants to qualify for the Boston Marathon.
