I signed up for Trifecta (Idaho, Wyoming, and Utah). Overall scenery of all 3 except Wyoming was great. Here is what I experienced.
1. No volunteer at all in some of the aid station. You will have to serve drink by yourself which takes extra time.
2. Not enough Gatorade or electrolytes drink at the aid station.
3. No swags or award ceremony in all 3 races.

If your goal is to check off the list of the states, it’s OK to do it. If you are a serious runner like me, I won’t recommend this. On top of the above issue I mentioned, I had the worst experience as below.

I finished first overall in Idaho and Wyoming with finishing time 3:23 and 3:33 respectively and overall 3rd positing for Utah with finishing time 3:25. There was no award ceremony on the first day. I personally spoke with the race director about it, he assured that he would do the award ceremony on the final day which is Utah run day June 9th. Finished the race and asked him the time of award ceremony. He responded that he won’t do it. I was extremely disappointed. He said that he would send all the prizes via mail. Let me give you a breakdown of what I was expecting by mail.
First place in 2 races is $300.00 ($150 for each race for the 1st place winner), $75 for the 3rd place winner. Age group prize (doesn’t clarify what exactly the prize is in their website), overall Trifecta winner (Special medal like none others and prize). I received $400 check and a flask which organizer was selling at the expo. I haven’t received the Trifecta medal. Contacted multiple times through email, facebook but no response from organizer. I know someone won Trifecta in the past and continue to will in the future by someone if organizer continue to manage the races. I wanted everyone to aware that if you are a serious runner and win the race, you might be disappointed.
