Meh... I don't think I'll do it again...

The course has some beautiful views and is pretty challenging. It's a very small race, so after about mile 10 I was pretty much alone. No crowd support. No finish line festivities. The only food at the finish line was one girl making peanut butter sandwiches. Medals were not delivered on time. It pretty much just felt like a long training run with aid stations rather than a race for me. It wasn't a horrible race, but I expected a little more.

Great Course - Poor Race

Buses 40+ minutes late, no way to mark drop bags, race started late, poor timing tracking, no finishers medals at time of event, poor and limited post race nutrition, drop bag pick up not organized, unorganized ceremonies. The course was beautiful, the event was not. The amount charged is similar to events such as Ogden Half Marathon, Snow Canyon Half Marathon, Top of Utah Half Marathon but the quality does not compare.

Review On:
Hilly and unorganized

The beginning of the race was nice. Not excepting the rolling hills. The last mile with running zigzag throughout the parking lot "maze" with people, cars, cones, and not informative staff was extremely frustrating. Especially at the end when tired and just want to be done and have no idea how far you are from the finish line. It was a nice enough experience, not worth the money.

Pretty Views

Beautiful vistas of Utah's Wasatch Back mountains. This was a great race that was well organized. The only concern was crazy switchbacks at the end that left runners confused and allowed some to cut off more than 1/2 mile "accidentally."
