A race is supposed to highlight a city’s best points. So why was i running past trash and garbage? I mean, how hard is it to get a street sweeper or a bunch of volunteers to pick up the garbage along the route?

Not a good way to sell Jackson.

I was impressed by the prayer at the beginning — a heartfelt way to thank God for the blessing of our health and the wealth we all have to participate in these races. Thank you, race director.

Kind, fun, helpful people at the expo and aid stations. But the race goes through several dreary areas to get to the rockets (and photo op).

Most of the course is shaded by trees. No need for sunscreen. Two loops through the battlefield with reasonable crowd support. Beautiful and fairly flat. MORE

Truly stunning scenery. Possibly the prettiest marathon I’ve run and I highly recommend this as a destination race.

But the race started at 8 am. With blue skies and rising heat, we lost focus on the scenery and battled the heat up the 14-mile grade.

Kudos for having volunteers on bicycles to offer assistance like the water I needed at mile 19.

Pros:
It was like being invited into a family’s home and being treated like family.
They had a prayer before the start. What a wonderful touch. I loved it.
Gorgeous desert scenery.

Cons:
They start the race way too late. For slower runners, the heat was killer.

The race starts in the desert in the grey morning. Within a few miles, you will see an astonishing sunrise in the red-rock desert of Utah hitting the cliffs on the west. And you’ll pass a couple of extinct volcanoes before descending into the pretty, almost midwestern, town of St. George with green lawns and picket fences. The overall effect is stunning — an island of green lawns and pretty houses set in the midst of a rugged, harsh red-rock desert.

Nice.

Look out for the hill around mile 8-9. Other than that, it’s mostly downhill.
