Mayor's Walk Origin

As told by Kent Perkins - Director, St George City Leisure Services Department

Just to keep history accurate, I attended the Honolulu marathon in 1987 and was excited to see their Mayor's Walk begin just after their marathon start. Upon returning I asked Mayor Karl Brooks if he would like to support us in starting a Mayor's Walk of our own. Mayor Brooks agreed to support and participate in a Mayor's Walk, and invited Bart and his entourage to join him and the public for the first walk. Bart was invited each year thereafter and we printed in our publicity, "come walk with Mayor Brooks/ McArthur and Ranger Bart Anderson"...

Now you know the rest of the story.
