    This race is small enough and the race director cares enough that I felt like I got personalized service throughout the whole race, from registration to finish line food! Months before the race the race director sent out emails to all the runners asking whether they preferred getting a shirt, or something else like a hat. He asked for color preferences, aid station favorites, and finish line food requests! He responded personally to emails and spoke with every runner after they crossed the finish line! There were free massages and about 10 different kinds of pizza to choose from after finishing! There was tons of food, including soft drinks, M&M’s, and some of the more typical finish-line food. The halfway point aid station had a grill and they were cooking bacon and steak-bites for the runners! The course was out & back and the start/finish was at a school that was open for the runners to stay warm in and use the facilities before the race and eat in after the race. The course was so scenic I didn’t even turn on my music until the final miles. There is one very large hill in this race, but other than that the course was pretty flat.

    I ran this years race as my 45th state.
    I stayed at the new Wingate hotel. 10 minute walk from the start/finish.
    Packet Pickup is easy – quick in/out no frills. The volunteers were eager and helpful.
    The race started & finished at the community center (Packet pickup location). It was an easy walk from the hotel. Looked like adequate parking was available. The start was very low key. As in – no microphone. The Mayor started the race by saying “everyone ready?… 3-2-1 go. A microphone/speaker would have been very helpful.
    The course was beautiful. It was an out & back with plenty of support. There’s one significant hill at about mile 6-8. (And again on the way back.) A bit lonely at the end (only 85 marathoners), but nice views of the mountains and of Sand Hollow state park.
    The finish was pretty much like the start. Super low key and quick. I did get a cool printout of my time almost immediately. Only 1st in age groups got awards (I was 3rd). That’s typical for smaller races though. Food was sufficient at the end.

    One negative: The website was a bit lacking. Lots of emails were sent out with information. The site doesn’t have the time listed and information is kind of scattered. An update would be ideal.
    Other than that I really enjoyed this race. I would do it again for sure.
