    Great event!! The course is fast, but not as fast as I thought going into it. It is essentially entirely downhill, with an exception of a few hills at the beginning. The hills at the beginning are not super steep, but long enough to throw a wrench in your plans for a pace you can only maintain running downhill. However, once I got over how poorly I underestimated the hills, I really enjoyed the course. Up and down was a lot of fun, and was a break break from the constant downhill only marathons in the state.

    The race was a little chilly until exiting the canyon (next year will be a few months earlier so weather should be perfect), but each participant was given hat and gloves before the race.

    Race directors did an exceptional job, course was well marked, volunteers were plentiful and amazing. Lots of motivational cheering at each aid station. Swag bags had lots of good coupons to local Beaver shops, and had lots of fun little giveaways from sponsors. Finish line was great, massages available and plenty of good post race food and music.

    I stayed up at Eagle Point Ski Resort because my family was a little worried about riding the bus up to the start line and so that I could “sleep in” a little more. It was perfect, and allowed us to drive the course backwards the day before. I ran to the startline which was about a mile from my accommodation at the ski resort. It worked perfectly.

    The people are great, friendly, the best swag anyone could ever get. The whole town got involved and it was a very welcoming atmosphere. You couldn’t get any better than this. Weather is awesome and a super-fast race. I got my personal best time 11 minutes faster then my record. Highly recommend. It starts at 10,000 feet , I also reccomend getting used to the altitude first. The beginning has some hill repeats. After about miles it is all down hill. Stunning scenery.
    Swag is the best.

    Congrats on the huge PR, Rhonda! And glad the organizers did such a great job with their inaugural race, Beaver City must be a beautiful place to run. We were just in your own beautiful hometown last week on our road trip across Southern Utah; I was sad they canceled the marathon this year since I was hoping to make it my first in Utah. On the bright side, that gives me one more thing to look forward to in 2021—or maybe I'll look at Beaver Canyon instead? 🤔 Nice job on the personal best, and thanks for your thoughtful review! LESS
