About This Activity

The 2nd Annual Veterans Day 5K/1 mile Walk, Run & Roll, sponsored by Southern Utah Veterans Home, takes place at the base of the Red Mountain in Ivins, UT near St. George. The 5K Fun Run starts and finishes at Southern Utah Veterans Home passing the fire station and Ivins City Park. This relatively flat course makes a loop around the north part of the city. The 1 mile race is designed for racers of all ages and abilities, led by our amazing Veterans being assisted by the Washington County JROTC Cadets.

Come join us in raising money for the JROTC while walking, running or rolling a mile with our Veterans in celebration of Veterans Day!
