Great Run!

Overall awesome race! Fun runners, great organization, AWESOME course. Well stocked aid stations. Everyone was super friendly and upbeat. I LOVED this run! This run was FUN! Very nice scenery - views of orchards, the river and the snow dusted Grand Mesa. The hill at mile 4.5 on the half was just right! I would highly recommend this race to any locals. If you're visiting Colorado, put this on your must do list! I'm ready to run it again! Thanks for a great race!

This was my first year to run the half marathon I enjoyed the course. There is a hill shortly after mile 4 but it is not that bad once you have that completed. The aid stations have all that you need and this is a great small race.

Best Half Marathon Experience

I run several races every year. I have done races with 50,000+ and smaller. I love the small town feel of the Grand Valley Marathon in Palisade. This is one of my favorite road Half Marathons. The nearly 200ft climb between mile 4 and 5 would bring anyone to their knees. BUT, the people, the town, and the view was fantastic. The aid stations were phenomenal.
