Throughout the course, St. George firefighters will spray runners with water. After the race, registered participants can take part in a glow-in-the-dark pool party from 10 p.m. to midnight. Typically, the newly built lagoon is restricted to residents of Desert Color.

“When we started this race seven years ago, we had no idea it would continue to grow into one of the most enjoyable races and family activities of the summer,” said Jake Green, a St. George firefighter. “The firefighters love it, our families love it and the community loves it. With it taking place during the annual Utah State Firefighters’ Association Convention, we are looking forward to even more participants.”

“After the race, stick around and enjoy an awesome pool party,” Green added. “We can’t wait to see everyone come out and have a blast, get sprayed by the fire hoses and be involved in our great city of St. George.”
