The 3rd 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.
