We know that volunteers are the lifeblood of any event. At Greater Zion, we’re implementing a new volunteer recruiting program focusing on what we’re calling our “signature events.”
These events are measurable by a large media exposure, economic impact and out of town visitors. We encourage residents to volunteer at three (3) signature events (1 of which must be IRONMAN World Championship), qualifying them to attend an exclusive volunteer gala held February 2022.
IRONMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
The IRONMAN World Championship has been held annually in Hawaii since 1978, with an additional race in 1982. It is owned and organized by the World Triathlon Corporation. It is the annual culmination of a series of IRONMAN triathlon qualification races held throughout the world.
IRONMAN – ST. GEORGE UT
St. George, Utah plays host to this iconic early-season race. Athletes vying for one of the coveted 75 Kona qualifying slots will be able to test their mettle in the shadows of the stunning red rock canyons in St. George, Utah.
4X4 JEEP JAMBOREE
We invite you to join us for the Winter 4×4 Jamboree held in Hurricane, Utah, (2 hours from Las Vegas) January 14-16, 2021. This spectacular event features world-class rock crawling combined with gorgeous views of Zion National Park, Pine Valley Mountain, Sand Hollow Reservoir and more!
PARADE OF HOMES
The 2021 St. George Area Parade of Homes is no ordinary Parade. It is the largest Parade in the state featuring 29 new homes full of the extraordinary.

ST. GEORGE ART FESTIVAL
Cultural activities are a big part of what makes this red rock country so desirable.

The City of St. George’s Art Museum regularly features the works of well known local artists as well as those of national and international acclaim.
ST. GEORGE MARATHON
The St. George Marathon is an annual marathon sporting event hosted by the city of St. George, Utah on the first Saturday in October. The first race run was in November 1977. It was originated and organized in just a few months by Sherm Miller, who worked for the Parks and Recreation Department of St. George City.
HUNTSMAN WORLD SENIOR GAMES
The Huntsman World Senior Games began in 1987 with approximately 200 athletes. What began as a vision to hold an international sporting competition for athletes age 55 or older by Daisy Morgan and John H. Morgan Jr. has grown into a global event that hosts nearly as many athletes in October each year as the Olympic Games do.
