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!

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.

Woohoo! We’re coming back for more, with more next year. (Let us know when 2018 registration opens). LP planners/coordinators are awesome, thank you!

13.1 miles of gorgeous countryside and some hills for good measure. The rain held off and it was great running weather!

The 55km this year was the best race experience I've ever had. Every single thing went perfectly. And the views...my god the views.

Definitely one of my favorite VR routes. Incredibly challenging, but breathtaking scenery.

I was recently featured on the Boldly Went podcast sharing the story of running my first 100-miler at Bryce (mine is the second story). I look forward to returning to Bryce for a do-over, but I also wouldn't change my first experience for anything. Thanks!

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.
