I love this race! I’ve done the half marathon 3 times in the past. This year I ran the 4-miler. It was uphill for the first 1.5 miles and downhill the rest which made for a very enjoyable run! The view at the top of the hill across the pond was so pretty! As always, the race production was impeccable and everything went so smoothly.

I’ve done 4 races with Vacation Races now and all of them have been flawless production! This one definitely wasn’t as scenic as others I’ve done with them but I still enjoyed it. It really didn’t feel very hilly considering it’s a net uphill course. The main struggle for me with this race was the humidity made it very tough. But you can’t plan for the weather! Definitely recommend!

The course was super beautiful, you wind around a cove in the first half on a packed dirt/gravel trail. It’s mostly along the water except the last 3 miles which are very hilly and lots of turns.

I have run every single race they put on and they are all spectacular! Just such a well-run race weekend. This year I ran the 10K which happens the day before the marathon/half. The course is great, you go over into Kentucky and back over two bridges. It’s not too hilly but a bit of elevation change. Highly recommend!

This race weekend is so well executed! We did the 3-way challenge with extra cheese (mile, 10K, 5K, and Half Marathon). Every single race was executed flawlessly with plenty of spectators, food, and water! The medals are so beautiful and high quality. Definitely planning to run this every year because it was that much fun!

The swag was great, Under Armor long sleeve and a beautiful crab medal! The post race party was fun with two free drinks, TONS of food, and a beautiful setting in the inner harbor. The course was beautiful but hillier than expected. Because of COVID there were no cups on the course, which was fine but it was communicated very well and we traveled from out of town without bringing a running water bottle. Also, even for a cup-less race, they could’ve used a few more water stops. The weather was very humid so hopefully next year is better!

Loved the race! This was my 3rd with Vacation Races and definitely won’t be the last. The course was very hilly but there were great views and you could even see Mount Rushmore from a distance. Lots of tunnels and corkscrews on the course, which was fun!

The course was both downhill and beautiful. You start at the top of a mountain by a pretty lake/pond and descend down until you reach town and do a small loop to the finish. I love point to point races so that was a bonus. Got a PR due to the downhill! Could have probably done even better without the high altitude and wildfire smoke. The last couple miles of flat road feel difficult after running downhill for 10+ miles. I’m probably more sore than I’ve ever been due to how hard downhill is on your joints.

The town itself was so cute and the people were very nice! Lots of post race snacks and refreshments. The swag was just okay but that’s to be expected with smaller races.

This was my very first trail race and I really enjoyed it. I did the double with this race and the Grand Teton Half the weekend before. I was dreading this course with the elevation gain and it being trail. I will say, it was technical with a lot of rocks in one section, but overall not bad! The race production and swag was top notch. Will definitely race with Vacation Races again soon!

This course is definitely the most beautiful I have ever run. The last few miles you have an unobstructed view of the Tetons! The finish line location is beautiful and a great place to soak in your achievement. Swag is great and I love that they have the double including the Yellowstone half the next weekend.

First race in Texas. It was beautiful with the views of the lake. Course was pretty flat with some small hills sprinkled in. Ran this the day after a wedding so didn’t do my best but I had a blast and we crossed TX off the list! Everyone was so nice.
