Last year we rolled into St. George with our 40′ motorhome looking for the finish line of the Red Mountain 50k. I had spoken with Jeremy (one of the RD’s) on the phone and he said he had a spot secured for us. As our GPS guided us the last 100 yards we saw someone who appeared to be looking for us… it was Jeremy. He greeted us as if we were long lost friend and point us to an amazing location for us to setup camp, not more than 50 yards from the finish. As I’ve mentioned before in other articles, this is what you get with Jeremy, Adriane and Phil at Red Mountain Running. Expect to be treated really well and have a great time.
This year Red Mountain 50k will be held on April 20, 2013. Along with the 50k there is a 30k and all new, all trail, half marathon. All races are point to point with bus service taking you to the start lines. Along the 50k route there will be 11 aid stations with drop bags available at mile 12. The 50k runners have 7.5 hours to officially finish the race.
The 50k will start at 6am and the 30k at 7am.
