    This race was one of the most amazing things I have ever done in my life. The scenery was breathtaking and it inspiring to be with so many different women of varied backgrounds and abilities. My constructive criticism would be with the race fee I would expect a chip timed race. More than one bathroom at the halfway point would be nice. The water needs to be upped at the end. A small Dixie cup was not enough after 13 miles in the desert. Overall it was great and pretty organized but considering the cost a few things could stand to be improved for sure. Would absolutely recommend to anyone.

    Great finishers medal – an actual belt buckle. Good awards, each year different & made from local artist (as best as I can tell). If you like your beer from local microbrew then you will be happy. Moab brewery is there with beers for your enjoyment.

    This is a really beautiful course to run along the river. The course is relatively flat. It starts early in the morning (6am this year). For the first half of the race, you’ll be in the shade, but it can start to heat up as the sun slides into the canyon during the last half. I love this women-only race. This was my second year running it and I plan to do it again. Maybe next year I’ll pony up and do the full 13.1 miles!

    This was hands down one of the prettiest courses I’ve ever ran. Plenty of water/Gatorade stops, really friendly and supportive volunteers, an encouraging atmosphere among participants… and can we talk about the setting again?!?! Flat, easy course. Two of my friends doing the race were first time half marathoners and achieved their desired times and had great experiences. The post-race refreshments and atmosphere was also great. We all really enjoyed this race and hope to do it again!

    The aid stations we’re perfectly spaced. The sponges were a wonderful thing. I think the energy gels would be nice at mile 10. Personal preference. Absolutely beautiful! The drummers were amazing and all the people along the way made it easier to finish.
    Thank you to whomever puts this on. Well done!

    Sun can be intense.
    Miles 5.5 to 7.5 on a bumpy road.
    Fun atmosphere.
    Great swag.
    Scenery along the course is awesome.
    I am from sea level so the altitude did impact my performance but had a great time and had lots of photo opportunities.
    A great race to run with friends and then spend the weekend exploring the Moab area.

    Everything went smooth with getting packets, finding parking, and the finish line. I loved the boat ride down the river for the half marathon relay. They had everything we needed while waiting for our partners. The scenery is a beautiful.

    Aid stations were perfectly placed! Appreciated Cliff get and two of the aid stations. Loved the Thelma and Louise theme with Louise’s thunderbird being the lead car. Glad we started at 6:00 a.m. because the sun heated up the course quickly. Beautiful scenery! The finishers medal is also a belt buckle..but I will keep it on the ribbon. Loved the characters on the medal!!!! And though this wasn’t my best race for time due to heat and altitude, is was one of the most fun. I did get second in my age group. I will have to say, of all the awards I have won, this on was the most creative specific to this race and absolute best. Fun trivia after the race. Loved the frozen grapes, watermelon, and oranges at the finish. Thank you to all the race directors and volunteers! Excellent!

    Just a low key, high energy, fun race to run. Hadn’t run a half in 5 years, and this was the one to do. Course is flat with really well placed aid stations and great volunteers. Super food and beer afterwards. Colorado River as a running partner doesn’t hurt a bit. Hope to return and actually train to have a better showing.

    GREAT theme. Swag bag and shirts were nice – Cliff bars too! Little mobile phone service at the parking lot and on the course. Course is all asphalt and flat. It’s cool when you start and hot at the end – heat radiates off canyon walls, road and river. BEAUTIFUL scenery! Excellent hosts. Only about 600 participants this year, so not a big crowd to contend with. Would do it again. Enjoy!

    This is the first race Ive ever been in, and has inspired me to keep doing it! Incredible environment- so fun to see so many strong women. Camping right on site was so fun as well! Though we got there late so our tent was set up right next to the starting line. This was a problem when they came to set up the race at 4 am and I was still trying to sleep… But running between the green river and the red rocks was breath taking and made the run extremely enjoyable! I hope to do this run yearly!

    An all around great race. Would definitely return to Utah for this one. Beautiful scenery, ample hydration stations – appx every 1.5 miles, out an back course, lots of comradery, plenty of refreshments after the race. Was a little disappointed in the actual belt buckle this year but hey that just means I will need a return visit.

    So first off the race is in MOAB! If you’ve never been it’s a beautiful place and that is all the more reason to sign up. The course was flat and the scenery was by far the best I have ever ran through. Aid stations were not lacking. I love the feel of an all female race – there is just something about the comradery in the air! Post race was perfect and well organized – the medal is amazing, great snacks, live music and free beer! I will definitely run this race again! Had a blast!!!

    The race is a LOT of fun, always very positive, upbeat and creative in its execution. The scenery in Moab is amazing so I always plan to arrive early and leave a bit later to enjoy the town. The boat ride for the relay is also a big treat, though you may want to bring a light jacket no matter which leg you will be running as the boat goes fast and it gets chilly!
