  2. Describe your race day.

    I liked the new start for the half. When we were in the campground we didn't get any announcements and last year we didn't know it had even started! The volunteers for this race are so great! They are encouraging and fun. It was a great race, beautiful weather and great course! My only complaint was that there was only one station with fruit for the half marathon. We would have liked a couple more stations with some fruit. We had nothing in the tank when we crossed the finish line.

  3. Did you PR?


  4. How would you describe the course?

    Beautiful and course and mostly downhill, at least for the half marathoners!

  5. Tell us about your training.

    We trained running down hills to get our legs ready

  6. What advice would you give future runners?

    Train downhill! It is 10 miles downhill for half marathoners and 19 for full marathoners. Bring warm clothes for the start line. It gets cold that time of year in the canyon!!

  7. What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?

    We only live about 45 minutes away....

    I have done this race 4 years in a row because we love the course! The mostly downhill race makes it a pleasant experience!!
