I have been in an athlete and race coordinator for a lot of years! I was super impressed with the organization and flawlessness of this race. And special Kudos to your staff and volunteers - so helpful, supportive, and kind! I currently work for the Huntsman World Senior Games and LOVED your recycle bins - could you share with me where you get them? Thanks for an amazing day and a Race so Well Done!

I remember how it felt running through these tunnels. It was such an amazing run! Gorgeous scenery the entire 13 miles!

I’ve run two of their races and they were both great experiences. Well organized and breathtakingly beautiful settings.

Y'all weren't lying when you said "challenging course"...it was almost my first DNF! Support from fellow runners and volunteers saw me to the finish though. Keep doing what you guys do, these races will always be a favorite of mine.
