Great event!

I just wanted to extend a THANK YOU on behalf of myself and my 2 friends (who I dragged along to run the 50 miler) for putting on a great event! Please pass this message along to as many of the squad / volunteers possible for making the race so well run.

Tough but breathtaking

I ran Bryce as my first 50k last year. Ultra adventures races are tough but breathtaking.
