Really enjoyed it. It was all I thought it would be and more. Organized very well by Dehn and Colleen who is wonderful on speaking each day. She is what makes the races enjoyable with her up beat radio experience and enthusiasm. Some help could be on the food service. There was more then one time food wasn't ready or enough. The helpers were excellent on helping. As runners this is important and emotions can be high when dealing with food. Amazing courses and Zion was my favorite. Thank you for a wonderful time. I will continue to join as long as Colleen is there to run it as she did.

Stunningly well organized race experience. Everything about the day was just beautiful and well executed. So inspirational and fun, I would like to come work for you. Of course, it didn't hurt that I won my age group so my opinion might be slightly biased. ;)

the most stunning, challenging course I've ever done.

Glacier was the most stunning, challenging course I’ve ever done. It was gorgeous. I can’t wait to get back in 2018!
