Hey everyone, I am super excited to introduce our Director of Race Operations to everyone. I met Jason Smith through a mutual acquaintance last year and I was very impressed with him. Jason will handle all the race day logistics and actual event coordination while I(Salem) am dealing with the expo & race check in.
Here is a short bio for Jason:
Jason was born and raised in Richmond Virginia, but has called Southern Utah his home for the past 11 years. He and his wife have 4 children and live in the shadows of Zion National park in Hurricane Utah. Jason got his start in running and race directing while working as part of the race crew for the St.George Marathon a decade ago, while staffing the race he caught the “Marathon Bug” and has run 10 Marathons, 1 Ultra and 5 relay races with his wife. Jason founded the Sand Hollow Marathon and later sold the event, then Co-Founded the wildly popular “Underground Runner Series” in Southern Utah. When not directing or crewing an event Jason can be found running the trails and back country of Southern Utah with his Boxer ( who never tires of running).
He is extremely excited to be a part of such an awesome event in his backyard and looks forward to meeting and making many new friends on race day!
Welcome Jason to the party!
