    My 12th marathon, but my first Revel race and first race in the Covid era. I was supposed to run Mt. Charleston in 2020 and then in 2021, but those both got cancelled so I figured I’d put my registration fees for those towards trying this one out. Expo, race were all very well-organized. I loved that they bused us to the start but let us stay on the nice warm buses right up until a couple of minutes before our start time so we didn’t have to freeze in the pre-dawn mountain temps. I’m not particularly concerned about Covid, but I think the race organizers did a great job trying to keep things safe and low-stress for folks who might be more concerned with the small groups, staggered start times, etc. I’d totally be open to small start groups again in future races, too — it made for way less dodging around folks in the first few miles.

    Course itself was scenic but it was right on the side of a road with giant trucks driving by, so that detracted from the pretty views a bit. Most of the downhill was in the first 15-16 miles, so my legs felt like someone had let off a nuclear bomb by the time we hit the last 6-8 relatively flat miles. My quads have never been so sore after a race! Couldn’t do stairs for several days. The last 6 miles or so were either right on the shoulder of a busy highway or through deserted farmland, so it took a lot of grit and determination to get through those on tired legs.

    Overall, not my favorite course, but I was so happy to be able to race again, and really appreciate Revel’s top-notch organization. And the Park City area is gorgeous and definitely worth a visit!

    My first Revel Marathon and they seem very organized and prepared with race communication/Packet Pickup/Shuttle service/post race food, so hats off for that. Also appreciate them putting a Covid-safe race together with proper distancing and masks when there doesn’t seem to be much else available in the spring of 2021. Fast course but altitude (8000ft) and 2300 foot descent took its toll on me! I live near sea level so don’t really have a way to practice long descent runs and this one really tore my quads up! Wasatch mountains are beautiful, but the course is open to vehicle traffic (many 18-wheelers) which detracts from the enjoyment of the run. They had it coned very safely, its just a bummer to run with traffic the whole way. Things to see: visit the Homestead Crater and soak in the 95 degree natural hot springs! Great to do after a Marathon! Visit the Olympic training facility in Park City and take the guided tour of the Olympic Ski jumping and bob sled courses. Very worthwhile and interesting!
