    Excellent in every way! Aid stations were plentiful and well stocked. The finishers medal was very nice, big too. I am proud to have my metal and the rest of the swag was cool too. The trails were outstanding as were the views. This was my 2nd year in a row and I plan on doing it next year also. I would recommend this race to anyone. Well organized. A lot of fun!!!

    In 2016 I did my first ever trail half. It was hard but had an awesome day. I didnt do it for time, I did it for fun. Everyone was great. Aid stations were the best. This year 2019 I downgraded from half to 10k because of foot issues. The 10k race was still awesome. Can’t wait til next year.

    This was my first time running spacerock 10k.Wonderful race experience, best trails i have run so far. The views is what made it spectacular.I love running the 10k it was very competitive and challenging , i was amazed on my performance.It was a tough course but i set my mind to start strong and finish strong and thats what i did. I guess swimming for 2 months has make me stronger to conquer those hills.When you set your heart and mind you can achieve anything.Having Perseverance and determination got me far i was able to finish the race without training. Along the way i was saying takes me what it takes me i will cross the finish line, last or first but i will be there. What motivate me to continue to be strong , and be tough on the hills were my little kids. They were waiting for me at the finish line. When i saw them i jump of joy.

    I want to thank the race director terry for putting an amazing event. Everything turn out to be great. Thank u for your time, dedication and patience.The course was well mark. There were aid stations along the course,and the volunteers took the time to set everything up, you guys rock. I really appreciate it.The shirt, the goodie bag ,and medal are very nice i really love it. I will highly recommend this race to anyone it has beautiful views that you will enjoy along the course. I have to say that i love every photo that was taken of me is something memorable for me and my kids when they grow up.They were free by the way.

    The race is a single trail which makes it a little more difficult, you have to let the people coming downhill pass , and you have to pull to the side so you cannot block their way. I experience so much runnning in the black tunnel i felt that it was moving, there was so much darkness that when i make a faster step each time it was moving more and more. It was something that i havent experience before. I will come back next year to do the half. Stronger than before.

    So this was my first time doing this race. It was crazy tough with the hills and valleys, but I really enjoyed it. Initially, I was thinking this was going to be a one & done race, since it was tough. However, by the time I finished, I knew I wanted to come back to try the 10k next year. I was told by friends that’s the one that has the best scenery.
    I’m walker, so of course, we were at the back of the pack. We had 10kers and half marathoners passing us by. We stepped aside as we could hear them coming, since the trails could be kind of tight in some areas. As moved aside, so they could keep running, they all thanked us. We only came across one crabby person, who was somewhat obnoxious.
    The vibe of the race was super chill and overall positive, which is why I want to come back.
    Also, I appreciated how the race director, Terry, kept posting and offered alternatives to participants as they’re had been several fires happening days before the races, which were affecting freeways people would need to travel. Luckily enough by race morning, all freeways had opened up.
    I think I’ll be bringing some newbies with me next to do the race!!
    Oh, I forgot to mention, I love the race shirt, bag, and medal as race swag. I can’t wait to see what color comes out next year.
    See you next year in 2020 Spacerock trail race!!

    This is my first time doing Spacerock 10K and it was amazingly good! So difficult and challenging. There were bees, aliens, and a really really dark tunnel. Did I mention all the hills too? Scenery is beautiful and serene. I fell face first at mile 3 on the 10k course and a sweet woman heard me scream and came back to help me up and had some tissues to clean me up. Kept going onto the final 3 (all pretty much uphill) until the finish. Definitely going to do this race again.

    I really enjoyed this race!

    The organizers were very professional and courteous when it came to sharing information regarding the race plan when there was a local wild fire the days before that caused concern regarding transportation to the race site as well as possible air quality concerns. In the end, everything was good re: highways open and the air quality was great. They really handled this well even though it was incredibly stressful.

    This did not effect the production of the race at all – they were still at 100% operational. It was a very fun course and a very fun race with lots of excited volunteers/staff. There was a ton of photographers on the course too and the photo-website service they used that allowed you to lookup photos by bib number and set an email alert on new photos posted of your bib number was a very nice touch.

    Re: the course:

    The final out-and-back portion of the trail run is tight on the spacing of the trail – you really are going to need to slow down to let the downhill runners pass and if you are not a fan of tight spaces that would be a little difficult

    I have run in every single Spacerock so far – and have loved it every single time! I love everything about it from the iconic location and the challenging course with amazing views to the enthusiastic and helpful volunteers who make the event possible! As someone who normally does road races and not trail runs, this is a tough yet refreshing challenge. The desert and sci-fi are both near and dear to my heart, and this event combines both in a very entertaining way! I look forward to this race every year and it never disappoints. Highly recommend!

    First time running this distance on a trail and it was MUCH tougher than I anticipated but got it done!! Even with all the obstacles that caused delays the race director and volunteers did a GREAT job in keeping things running (no pun intended) smoothly!!!

    Having been bitten by a bad stomach bug, I missed the actual day, but ran in the virtual category a few days later. This would be my fourth year, and the trails are fabulous, as is the management. While I didn’t miss the distance, having run it here, that race is SO much fun and just enough of a challenge that I miss that part of it – and will be back in 2020.

    This was not an actual race, just practice run. But I enjoyed it, being my first trail run. DEFINITELY would want to run it the next time.
