FYI, I am now 71, I have done 130 Marathons, 120 half’s, , 30 Ultras. This race was my 13th time for running it, The course has changed at least 3 times I know of. The organization did a marvelous job at putting this together. Fantastic community support and turn out. Lots of bands/drums etc. Volunteers had great attitudes. If you run this, if you park in a garage, park close to the exit, read all the race guide, take a space blanket just in case, mornings are cool.This race can turn hot later in the race. The swag is great and lots of thought has been put into this race. You will enjoy this for sure. There all hills, several so plan for it.

Lights, colors, swag, lots of folks, maybe 20,000 in the 1/2, another 20,000 in the 10K, no one could tell us for sure. Music all the way, Well put together. One issue, their web site needs some work also the communication via emails is weak. If you get same day bib pick up, they charge $50.00 plus processing fee, $10.00 plus tax. $60.00 plus to pick up. The web site also does not say where to go. But the runners are great and the bands are great too.

The organizers did a good job, lots of police, everyone had a good attitude. Aid stations is just water and Gatorade. Finish had no cold drinks, we finished at 77%. The mountains are very nice, but the flat land was boring. Your results are instant. All results posted in less than one hour of finish.

Rolling hills course, nothing really steep. Good views, Lots of different races, Single track, muddy today, all ran well. If you go next year, the GPS is wrong, Apple phone will take you to the wrong spot, so search for the main gate. Buses this time to make it easier to get in and out. Never hod bad weather here out of 3 years running this course.

R & R did a great job, execution at every level. Start was good, well done, finish was also good. A very good course, out and back. Lots of bathrooms, so not problem there. Exit was a little tight because of all the people. 8500 1/2 marathoners. 5000 10K ers. Really a great crowd. Parking at my garage was free 201-South Ash Ave. for runners, they started charging later on. Exit out of town was easy and fast. Police presence was right on the money.

Very cold today, 29 degree start, good sun, 51 degree finish. They have improved a great deal. Course marking, food was great, grill cheese , hot drinks. Haven’t got the results yet, 50K are still out. Nice folks, lots of spectators came out. Good public park. Good parking, lots of space. No issue, The lady runner 50K WON IT, broke the course record by 18 min. So hot she melted the rocks.

This race on an organization level has improved over last year. Busses and staff were perfect. The course is rather boring for me. Maybe for out of town folks it would be better. Finish area was perfect, well done, staff had it together for sure. The Medal was very plan Jane. We have so much here, Big horn sheep, mountain lions, Owls, hawks, bobcats and 16 mountain ranges that surround us. It looks to me that with a little effort a super cool medal could be made.

The Revelers is a very fine group, really. However, this race and I have done 9 of their races ranked way down the list. The buss pick up was a mess. The location for pick up, no signs, no people, nothing was there. The delegated people showed up very late. A parking attendant not associated with the race helped out. Runners were so mixed up. So the race started late. Also no bathrooms on the lot, also a big problem. A total mess. The course is a nice course, not the fastest Revelers but good. Not a lot of locals out. Aid stations are just water and electrolytes so bring your own snacks. Weather war great and finish was great and very well organized.

Beware of the trail markers. Here again the boos is not checking up on the worker bees. Many people got turned around, off course for 2-4 miles, wrong direction etc. These folks have issues with proper markings and directional s. I thought I was on course, another lady coming from opposite directions said she was back tracking.. Turned out she was right, we both go messed up for miles. Also have many other say the same thing. Aid stations are great, this particular race the swag was very nicely done. The mountain is challenging, most is flat.

First off the Navajo nation was fantastic. Over all a good race, very beautiful for sure. Cliffs, Rocks, Trees and ……sand. 150 runners only, drawing only. They do a fine job for sure. The site says 2.5 miles beginning and end is sand. That is incorrect, its more like 22 to 26 miles of sand. So be ready.

This is a lap race, originally signed up for the 31K, timer was not nice. I requested to drop down because for me, lap races are very boring. He ( timer guy ),said he would not do it but I could drop out if I wanted. Not a nice guy. Band speakers were directed to the spectators and not the course??? Mostly flat course, one hill, the trail was nice. They practice no cups which is so totally worthless. No cup races are no cup to help the directors do less work and make more money, which is a lot of Aravaipa races. Food was good, aid stations good. But friendliness of the race folks and runners is like a 2 on a 1-10 scale.

This race course has changed a couple of times. It used to be called the Summer Round UP. The current course is very hard. 6 miles up hill and a turn around. 400 ran it this time. Crazy hard for flat-landers. Most runners come from mountain areas or high altitude. Last year I exploded on the course, this year I improved by 1 hours and 35 minutes. Most runners in this race are super good, in shape, young, and skinny. But all types run it. Leg 2 of the Garden to Peak challenge. ( Pikes Peak Marathon and Ascent ). Their Swag is a T-shirt, no medal, cups, mugs etc.

We had about 50 in this race, maybe 150 with all 5 races. Food was good, they still don’t have cups, :(, Course is a nice one, music was good, They still give out really cheap glass ware as swag, it breaks very easily, or a wooden medal if they don’t run out. Option hat or shirt. Local run for the most part, family spectators are there, good support. The attached photo was the sunset last night.

Race production, Only the finish was really well done. One other aid station was OK. The rest :(. The runners were good, not as friendly as most. The course was a good course, lots of hills, all single track. Lots of trees. Again, they failed to give medals, I am seriously thinking about moving on from this group. Just not to friendly of Organizers. We did get a nice whiskey glass. Much better than the last 3 we received. They are most focused on making money first. Still can not get calls back or emails returned.

One continuous single track, rocks, and views of the local area and Pikes peak mtn. range. This is a family ran organization, well done. Results are posted same day, good swag, The course is check the night before and the day of the race for proper flagging and nothing has removed the flags. Easy to find. Top notch production.

This was my 7th race with Revel, some changes I do not like, course was good, it was put together well, Medal was great, however, finish line was sad, food, drink-sad, they dropped the box lunch, they dropped the mud/insulated drinking cup, the retail was sad as I never carry credit cards in a race, worker enthusiasm was not there. So, in my view, on a scale of 1-10, old rating a 12, they have dropped to a 5 or less. Rather sad. Just focused on the money.

This one is a must do. I have ran this course or parts of this course 5 times, different distances. The slot canyons are amazing. This year we did not have as many, but that was a land ownership thing. But, no less amazing. This year we looped around the Horseshoe bend, also a must see sight. This year, lots of rain, mud, rocks, wind, cold but still I love it. The rain and mud slowed things down though.

There are some great views in this race, recent storms put lots of water in the creeks, several creek crossing. Nice running area. Good aid stations, mostly OK marked trails but needed more markers out, at one fork in the trail, no markings, that caused a delay. Award pick up is still up in the air, or lacking information. This organization gives out very cheap glasses or wine glasses, so cheap they break easily. If they are going to do that, spend some money and get good ones we can use. I have spoke up on this but no one wants to hear that.

Good course, pavement and trail, rolling hills and flat. Very well organized. Great SWAG, the race ends in ” Old Tucson Studios “, lots of Law Enforcement, lots of EMT’s on stand by. Good People and the runners came in from all over the nation, very cool. The staff was perfect, the weather was great. This is a great company to run with. The photo was sunrise this morning.

Much improved all the way around. Trail markings were perfect, aid stations were all well done and full, and a good selection. Still no National Anthem. That part is sad that a few cry and the rest have to agree??? Swag was good, t-shirts are good, the medal was smaller but very nice. A bunch of us used the GPS on the site, took us to the wrong place, about 20 cars ended up wrong. 2nd Try we went right to the Church address, it was closed and Locked gate. So we ask around, the correct entry was a short distance 1 +- mile away. The actual address of the park or guard shack should be used. Overall, it all turned out well.

Can’t beat this run. The organizer is a Family ran group. Moab UT, they do many races around Colorado an Utah and AZ. ( Mad Moose ) is their name. This race is a hard one, Winter snow, snow melt, mud and about 600 runners this time. Well done race and results were posted is less than 18 hours. Super nice group and runners. You will not be disappointed. I have ran 10 races with this group. 🙂

This time, early cold start, good temps. all day. Location is great, don’t miss this one. Calico racing. The results were posted in less than 12 hours.

Very well organized race. Our lead person was Hanna with BBSC’s endurance events. She was very sharp and very well organized. Totally focused. First part is slow, some hills, the end is great, went through 4-6 old train tunnels. We run on the old train path. Great views from up there. The town of Boulder city is the cleanest town I have seen in years.

If you are a regular runner, you need to know, this organizer is OK at best. The swag gets worst. They seem to change from medals ( wooden ) to very cheap wine glass type the might have cost them 19 cents. I ask the organizer about this and he told me he did a “survey of his runners “, I never received a survey and I have done several of his runs. Runners are here for fun, the race, the location and the medal. 100 plus dollars, sometimes 200, or more and you can not put out a good swag????? Thats called profiteering. Also this race and two other of his races have issues with trail signage. The photo posted was sun rise on race morning.

I did well till I hit 11,000 ft. , later found out I had come down with an infection, but no fault of anyone. However the race is fantastic as always, I know the course well, you will love it. Training is a must, and high altitude is 100% necessary. 95% trail, single track. Be ready. weather is all over the place so again, be ready. Miss the cut off time, miss the medal so get in shape.

Very difficult course, 4,000 ft. elevation gain, straight up the mountain. Turn around is at 13450 ft. Most of the runners are repeat and very good. Lots of women runners, more than I have ever seen in a race by percentage. Snow at the top, turns hot on the way down.

There were several races ran on the same day, The web site had corrections so I am sure some folks did not get the change. Ref. time start. Most everything else has improve. However, their award was a very cheap wine glass that every runner I know hates. Totally worthless and breakable. My big issue with this organization is that they do not play the National Anthem. Not 100% sure but I have not heard it at several runs. They also are now running the Tucson Marathon. The National Anthem had better be played. Very sad these folks forget just what country they live in.

I believe this one was a cold one. Start was 16 degrees. Good course, good run, no trail issues, very well organized, good aid stations. Fun people and good support from everyone. This group, ( Mad Moose-Utah ), I have ran many of their runs, Utah, and Colorado. I think they are fantastic. Sometimes cutoffs are hard but most often they are doable.

I have ran this race many times. I first ran this race in 1998 and did very well, over the years I have bettered the times and also ran slower. The trail, the start, the finish, the quality of the staff and their focus is really fantastic. Now that I am a lot older this proves to be an extreme challenge. Every aspect of this race is covered. The other runners come from around the Nation and the world. A challenge for everyone for sure. For sure the runners are really nice to exchange ideas and information.

Starts cool, nice views and will flatten out. You run the highway most of the race. Poorly put together and never has been a well done race. This year 2022 will be interesting. New owner from the Phoenix area, they historically give bad service and don’t return emails or calls. I have ran several of their run in the Phoenix area. They are an average organization. This is their first Tucson Marathon, it will be interesting how it goes. I am still waiting for both a call and an email to be returned from these new folks.

Just loved the race, on the horse shoe race, I would follow the river for 2-3 more miles and then turn to the finish. Loved the scenery, it was great, improve that if you can. Love trail running, so much more fun than street. Just returned from Chicago Marathon. This race beats that one 5 to 1. It was good but not grand. VR’s are just fine. Mostly, good folks. Who ever reads this, this “Trail Fest” is a must do. P.S. the medal is the 2nd best one I have received in 44 years and 150 races. The photo I posted is just the tip of the iceberg. That is Horse shoe bend from the top of the cliff, I diverted off the trail so to get the photo, no worries, your not running the edge. Safe as can be.
