ST. GEORGE — After being canceled last year due to the pandemic, the St. George Marathon returns this weekend with thousands of racers – and the road closures and detours that accompany them on race day.
The race, which starts in Central on state Route 18 and runs south into St. George, will shut down access to much of SR-18 and parts of downtown St. George for at least half the day on Saturday.
On race day, the St. George Police Department will have signs set up at various road closure locations that will feature a sign with a QR code that motorists can scan with their smart phones.
Once scanned, the smartphone will open a map showing drivers detours and alternate routes around the marathon course.
Up to 7,000 runners are expected to participate in this year's St. George Marathon.
