One can stitch together a decent run in downtown St. George, hitting some of the city’s historic highlights and pleasant residential streets. Rather than design a specific route, use the description & map below to create your own route. The area is ~1.5 miles north-south and ~2 miles east-west (I-15 to SR 18/Bluff St.).
The nice area for running is west of I-15. Use Zion Stadium/Dixie State University, and the long St. George Boulevard as anchor points. Be sure to hit the Pioneer Courthouse and the Brigham Young Winter Home, both near the intersection of Main St. & St. George St. At the southern end of the downtown area, Dixie State University has some nice pedestrian paths. The numbered streets East and West tend to be narrower and more residential (i.e. 200 W). We also recommended heading north on 200 E/Skyline Dr. to Pioneer Park, where you can run on some of the park’s roads and trails, as well as a path alongside Red Hills Pkwy, which is a gateway to the Red Cliffs Conservation Area and Snow Canyon State Park.
- Create your own route. It's ~1.5 miles north-south and ~2 miles east-west (I-15 to SR 18)
- Generall flat downtown, hillier toward Pioneer Park
- Main St./St. George St. are good anchor points
