The Great Race is a Dixie State tradition that began in the 1960’s with a bike race that traveled
through St. George and its surrounding farm roads. In the early 1970’s it became a 10-man
relay team that included activities such as: running, motor crossing, horseback riding across
Foremaster Ridge, bicycling, and tubing down the Virgin River. In 2000, it was brought back to
the Dixie State campus in a modified version that included many of the original events. Dixie
alumni, students, and our local high schools battle annually for the coveted Great Race “Gold
Medal” and bragging rights for another year.
