St George Marathon Update

Today's speaker was Kent Perkins, City of St George Leisure Department. He gave us an report on the St George Marathon. Here are some interesting points Kent shared with us:
- the cap the applications for the marathon at 7,200 runners, next year it will go up to 7,300
- after all the no shows and drops from application deadline to start of the race they ended up with 5,650 runners this year
- they only had 80 bus drivers for the Washington County School District buses, but needed more, the district has a whopping total of 126 buses
- the St George Marathon is the 4th highest Boston Marathon qualifier
- only 700 residents ran
- voted the Best Organized Marathon in the US by Runners World Magazine
