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.

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.

The food at the finish was ice cream, bread, peanut butter, oranges and bananas. We had water and Powerade. If I could ask what you would suggest what would you like to see for food. It is important t ...show more
