Best Race!

I will have ran 13 half marathons this year, and Mt Nebo was my absolute favorite! Not only was the race well supported, the scenery was beautiful and I got my PR! Definitely recommend for next year!

Favorite and Fastest Course

I absolutely love this race. Besides being such a beautiful course down Payson Canyon it is also the fastest race I will ever run because the elevation drop is over 3000 feel. I love it!

Very beautiful

Mt Nebo was my second marathon. I ran other two after this race. I must admit and share that the Mt Nebo course is the most beautiful and highly supported race. I guess these events are done by the company which is dedicated to health through workouts apps, races, and educational tools. Runtastic guys, keep up your good job. I and my friend already signed up for the 2018 race along with couple of other events with you. Thank you.

Nebo Half Review

Great race! Absolutely loved the scenary. Good race directing, email information and finish line management. The only hiccup was the lack of complete directions for the bus drivers. Would totally signup again!

2018 Race Review
Review On:2018-09-07 19:26:34

I liked this course. I wouldn't say I loved it, because I was not expecting the out and back on dirt road, and I had road shows on which made it a bit more challenging during that part. The views were beautiful, but one of your volunteers was cocky and rude about my running technique, even if it did suck...I felt put down. I wouldn't say I could BQ on this course.

Race Day and Packet Pickup

This is my first time running this race. I registered last April. My run is now only 11 days out, and I haven’t heard anything about packet pickup or the race details.

Virtual Marathon Experience

Thanks for making participation in the 2020 virtual marathon easy and affordable. While this was my 77th marathon, it was my 1st virtual race, and I completed it on my Zero Runner treadmill. While I missed the excitement of the race in the canyon with all the other runners, I really appreciated not having to risk a plane and hotel and COVID exposure (I live in New Jersey). Mt Nebo organizers should pat themselves on the back for making the virtual run so accessible.

Review On:2020-10-22 16:09:28

Great volunteers and staff. I did not expect to get a PR on this course but it was faster than I remembered it to be...pulled off a best time by 8 minutes! The pacers were WONDERFUL. Very nice finish line and even though we had to wear masks this yr I was grateful to all the participants and spectators that did wear them so we could run more Half marathon events out on by Runtastic Events. Medals were beautiful and I love how big they are for displaying purposes at home.

2023 Race Review
Review On:2023-08-26 12:09:47
I paid so much for nothing at the end

26.2 miles ran and they took all the decorations down before I could finish alongside other runners. I paid just as much as the other runners and they took the cones, signs, timer, and finish line down before I finished. They claimed their permit only allowed them to stay up till noon, so if that's an issue, start the marathon sooner. Safety and camaraderie for the runners doesn't matter to them after noon I guess. What a waste of money and my time. Very frustrating and sad.
