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!

Beautifully challenging course

Fun race, beautifully challenging course on an ideal day for running. The finish area on the East Glacier Hotel lawn was great. Well done to all organizers and volunteers.

Thanks, Vacation Races, for an awesome race. If you can lose the brief deluge at the start, you'll have a perfect race!
