If you’re not used to running at high elevation then you may think this will make things tough. Suffice to say, if you pace yourself, it’s ok.

A gentle loop around West Yellowstone before you head off into the forest. You are running on trail so expect roots, rocks, mud, puddles and people who make it look easy! To be fair it is all pretty good until you hit mile 6 when someone decided to put a long killer hill in. Some may say it is a greater power, personally I blame the race director who could have chosen a flatter route.

Admittedly that would have made things a lot easier and half the fun of running is testing yourself. It doesn’t matter how long you take, everyone runs the same distance. The scenery was phenomenal, the volunteers were top rate and the organization was second to none.

The sheer joy when you get within sight of the finish line makes all of the pain and suffering disappear as joy, self belief and satisfaction sweep over you.

I’ve run nearly 170 half marathon‘s and this is easily in the top 3 with the organization the best I have experienced across a number of countries. Add in the surprise of medals for age group placing and I was over the moon. My wife wasn’t so happy as I was smug for a little too long for here liking!

I will be back for another Vacation Race and will encourage all I know to fly across the pond to take part. The combination of location and organization make these races unbeatable.
