** Updated review. Shortly before the race the race org sent out an email that the medals were delayed due to ‘supply chain’ issues. Since the race they have not responded to any runners via email or social media. I have run a ton of races and don’t care about the medal but to a first timer that medal is very meaningful. I would avoid this race and run13 in general. Very poorly run organization.

I love this race. It is an easy sloping downhill course. The scenery is beautiful! It is a small race but they do a GREAT job with volunteers and course support. The only problem is that his is not a full 13.1 miles. I ran it in 2021 and thought I had a watch glitch as it ended up short. I ran it again this year and came up .11 miles short of the 13.1 miles. I compared notes with several friends and none of our watches got to the half marathon distance. This is easily fixed by run13. Hopefully next year the course will be the full 13.1 miles.

I have participated in this race 2x. Once half marathon and once the full distance. This is a fantastic course. The scenery from the start is amazing and the race is impeccably organized. One thing that freaked me out on my first marathon was the shuttle to the start. I mentally freaked out a bit knowing how far I had to run by driving it first!

The aid stations are great. Fully stocked with tons of volunteers. I love that they had orange slices and a popsicle at near the bottom. Tons of great food at the bottom to help with recovery. I forgot to have some ibuprofen at the bottom and was able to get some from the aid station.

this Race is not all downhill. There is a large elevation drop but there are some hills that will challenge you on the course. Mile 7.4 to 9.2 is either flat or uphill as is mile 15.9 to 16.4. Don’t cheat on your hill work as you prep for this race because you will definitely run uphill for small sections.

Overall this race is great and reasonably priced. Would absolutely do it again!

This course is in a gorgeous canyon in provo UT. The run starts on a side canyon and hits the main canyon about 2 miles down. Unfortunately the race is held on the provo canyon walking trail that is very very very popular with bikers and pedestrians. You will fight against other traffic all the way down the canyon. It is tough to run side by side with another runner. 3 wide is impossible. The scenery is pretty. Once you get out of the canyon you are back on a road with traffic control and more room to spread out. Aid stations in the canyon are a bit spotty. I forgot to bring nutrition for me and ate part of a Kind bar that was provided. If you are familiar with provo you know exactly where the finish is and can see it slowing coming from 3 miles away. That may bother you if you are struggling the last 3 miles.

The medal for the race is honestly pretty generic and looks exactly like Run13’s sister race with a different sticker.

This is the steepest race I have ever done. I know that is Revel’s specialty but my quads and hip flexors were wrecked after this one. The scenery is unbelievable going down the canyon. Good sized race with a very excited crowd. Aid stations are great. The provide a good looking medal. I was honestly disappointed with the shirt. It did not last very long and was not high quality as I had hoped.
