This was the hardest and most rewarding race I have done in my entire life. It felt like we were running in the clouds. I literally felt my mother presence when I got to the top of the mountain and shed a tear. Thank you for putting on an amazing race. We will be back next year for sure.

Ran this in 2017 and 2018. Very well ran, thank you. Aid stations were very good! Grafton mesa marking was much better this year. I have mixed feelings on the cemetery decent and climb missing, that detail likely helped my overall time but was looking forward to that challenge. Although during the race I was like thank God I'm hanging a left here and not a right down that switch back. Found myself questioning the direction of the path several times, however I expected that and am OK with that. I did not catch the name of the person that did most of the talking at the pre run meeting and did the MC at the finish line this year. Maybe I caught he was the race director. Any way, I was impressed with him. Great character and professionalism with genuine concern for the runners. Such a good race. Next year I will do another VR event.
