Favorite half

This is my favorite half... I've done several half marathons down canyons but the last two miles always seems to be boring and in the city ... this one is different... it's a great scenic race from start to finish... And downhill gives you even more momentum and excitement. I LOVE this half.

Good race love the course. Medals are getting smaller every year. No swag bag. But I run it because of the course

If the swag bag is important tell us what you would like to see in it. We do electronic bags because it helps lower waste and easier to to load. Someone suggested a gel packet in it. We will try to do ...show more

Beautiful!!

The most beautiful run I have done in a while. It was frustrating to see runners bussed up well after the "firm " time limit. But once the race started it didn't matter anymore.

Never again

From riding the bus up (not enough buses) to chaos drop off, one cheap info magazine as swag in the swag bag, to crap food at the finish (people frantically putting together homemade peanut butter sandwiches)...I won't run this race again. Bad organization. Bad swag. Bad food at finish, bad support at the end.

Drop 13

This was the most unprepared race I have ever ran. Waited in line for over an hour to load the bus in the morning. NOT ENOUGH PORT-A-PORTIES at aid stations...the lines were so long if you wanted to use them. The food at the end wasn't good. Overall, I was very unsatisfied with this race for the price I had to pay.

Drop 13 Review

Great scenery. Good half marathon for your 1st time. Can earn a PR medal, medal for losing 13+lbs, & finishing. I wish they had more RR along the way.My 1st yr I raced this I skipped the RR at the 1st 2 stops because the lines were crazy only to reach mile 6 to find ONE TOILET!! Unfortunately I HAD to go & lost 20 minutes on my time.Post race food is decent, tec shirts are good. Busing could be better. My sis missed the early start time b/c of the busing problem & we were there sooner than told.

Never got any better

The course is beautiful, with plenty of bathrooms. That was about it. The swag was a copy of a magazine puplished last year, and a small plastic garbage sack as a drop bag! They didn't bring clothing down like they said they would. Finish line had very little. No real sponsorships. I've run much smaller cheaper races with better swag and a better finish line. They do offer several medals. Overall it was a disappointment for the cost.

Best Price for Big Cottonwood

No frills race with a great price compared to other races down Big Cottonwood Canyon. If you're comparing this to the Revel BC race ... you're not paying for a Revel experience. But, the course is FASTER than Revel! This is a great course if you're looking for a PR!

Fun

I absolutely loved the scenery. Fast down hill. A lot of my friends PR'd...but I paced and it was a blast. Didn't like the slope of the road in parts, but was still a lot of fun.

One of my favorites

I love this race! Beautiful, fast course, and there something magical about running this canyon in June. Even though it can be a bit cold at the start the weather is always wonderful! The bus situation is a bit unorganized but I like the two time options. If you like be be up top early you can, I like the late bus since it still gets us up in time to use the potty and start the race. I like the smaller race and don’t run it for the swag. The medals & drop bags could be a little better.

We walked about 15 minutes to get the start line this year. It was cold but we made it. I love this race. The organization is the best in the town.
