Do you have a talent that you’re itching to share with Cedar City? Show us what you’ve got at the Cedar City Star Search Talent Competition!
In its 12th year, this popular, closed-canyon half marathon takes runners down the breathtaking Cedar Canyon. The 13.1-mile course is one of the nation’s fastest, with runners descending from 8,400 feet to 5,600 feet at the finish line.
Kick off the summer with the Slow Roll community bike ride! Join the Cedar City Active Transportation Committee for a family-friendly-block-party experience, with bands, food trucks, popsicles, and—weather permitting—the fire department hose to keep you cool!

SEPTEMBER 25TH            Back for another year, the Utah edition of the Belgian Waffle Ride promises unparalleled punishment for entrants, with a new course, more teeth-rattling gravel, and the vistas only southern Utah can provide,


JUNE 25TH                              If you like to run at night or howl at the moon, come out for the Moonwalk and 5k Run along the Cedar City Trail System.   


NOVEMBER 11TH- 13TH    Join the Historic Preservation Committee for Cedar City’s 170th birthday. The three-day celebration will commemorate the history, struggles and accomplishments of Cedar City's residents and include food, music, guest lectures, entertainment, and special arts and crafts vendors.
