The Dogtown Half Marathon expects 800 participants — 250 more than last year — in its seventh annual race, set for Feb. 25 at 8 a.m. All participants are required to park near the finish line at Staheli Farm and take a shuttle bus to the start line in Hurricane. In addition to the half marathon, participants may run a full marathon and start at 5 a.m. There will also be a 5-kilometer race and a kids’ run at the Staheli farm.
“Washington City’s Dogtown Half is quickly becoming a premier racing destination in southern Utah,” said Marcia Whitney, events/rentals coordinator for the Washington City Community Center. “Our new faster downhill course unfolds along paved roads and trails through an area known for both its brilliant blue skies and the red rock formations.”
