It’s back for the 2nd time! Join us for the St. George Last One Standing Race. We promise this is no ordinary race. Bring your camping gear because you’re going to need it!
The race will take place on a 6-mile modified Mayor's Loop beginning at Confluence Park. Participants will have 1.5 hours to complete the loop. If the loop is completed within that time the participants will toe-the-line again for the next round on the same exact loop, repeated every 1.5 hours. No, you can’t start a loop early, so don’t ask. There are a possible 17 loops totaling 102 miles for those most determined souls. The faster participants will have more time to rest before the next round starts, but that strategy could prove detrimental. If participants cannot finish a loop before the next round starts then they are eliminated from the race. If more than one person in a division makes it to that coveted 17th loop, whoever finishes first on that final loop will win their division. The current individual record is 14 completed loops. Will that record be shattered this year?
To earn a finisher medal, participants must complete at least one loop (6 miles). Success is measured by the number of completed laps, not speed, not good looks. At the end of each loop, participants will also be given buttons that can be attached to the medal that signify certain achievements. Runners who complete all 17 loops will receive a humongous championship belt as their trophy of honor.
