Best vacation of my life.

My family's visit to Grand Teton has so far been the best vacation of my life. Glacier has been on my bucket list ever since. This race is 6 days after my 50th birthday so this will be an awesome birthday gift!

What you really want is the medal

It was a loop course through the Gallatin National Forest which, for a non-trail runner, was challenging but very beautiful. There were plenty of aid stations well-stocked with wonderful volunteers and port-a-potties. They had a very nice snack box at the end and the volunteer fished out an extra cold chocolate milk for me.The shirt is best tech tee I've ever received, a beautiful hunter green with a classy design.But what you really want is the medal. That -ish is ridiculous!

Tough but breathtaking

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

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.

Definitely a highlight so far this year

Standing in the middle of nowhere at 5 AM with almost 2000 other runners, watching the sky turn pink and waiting for this run to start, was definitely a highlight so far this year. Hope to do it again.
