  2. Describe your race day.

    The most memorable thing about my race day was that the aid stations ran out of supplies before I came through and the finish line also had run out of all the amenities. I was so disheartened and disappointed by this. Not the experience that they promised or that I paid for.

  3. Did you PR?

    Technically, yes.

  4. How would you describe the course?

    Beautiful canyon course with a steep grade. The Wasatch out and back portion is tough and keeps you honest with rolling hills.

  5. What advice would you give future runners?

    Bring your own nutrition and fluids because you can't count on Revel to provide it. They'll run out.

    I agree, so disappointed in Revel with lack of support at aid stations and finish line. I finished in 3:45 and everything was cleaned out by the half runners. I think revel should refund a portion of the marathoners race entries! We didn't get what we paid for.
