Cactus Hugger

The Cactus Hugger is getting an all new race course for 2019! Come join us in Hurricane for an 8.5 mile, fast and flowy race. The course incorporates single track from the JEM, Cryptobiotic and Hurricane Cliffs trails in one of the most popular riding areas in St. George. The trail consists of mostly smooth, flowy singletrack with a section of Hurricane Rim that is chunky to keep you on your toes. We’ve linked up the three trails with some smooth double track for a fast, fun, completely new course for 2019.

With 20 different categories—ranging from kids to pro—the Red Rock Cactus Hugger offers something for every mountain bike enthusiast
And, if you really want to enjoy nature, there’s plenty of undeveloped, on-site camping so you can really rough it!

Sand Hollow Marathon & Half

The Sand Hollow Marathon runs in March. If you have not yet run this course, then you’re in for a treat! Our newly developed course, starting and finishing in the beautiful, small town of Hurricane, Utah. It is only twenty minutes from St. George, thirty minutes from Zion National Park, and just two hours from Vegas by car. 2019 will be the 9th Annual Sand Hollow Marathon, and as always, our goal is to provide the perfect venue. We believe we have the most scenic course of all; making this is a great race with a small town atmosphere. The scenery is fantastic, the volunteers are great, and our sponsors make it happen. We have listened to the advice of our runners and continue to improve and grow this popular event.

Come see why many athletes choose to run in Southern Utah. We are known for warm weather that gives all of our northern Utah runners a great excuse to make the trip to St. George. We hope to see you soon!
