Spots were slippery on the boardwalk from the recent rain. Nice paved trails and boardwalks, not alot of scenic views though (mostly trees). Good pacers – some offered intervals. Decent support at water stops. Fun atmosphere at finish line. I wish they provided spectator info for us out-of-towners.

there were course updates this year to accommodate snow damage areas, but i loved the course, esp the roughly 4+ miles of trails through the National Gallatin Forest. Great support, including all pertinent information before the race, clothes drop off, water/aid stations, port-a-potties. super easy parking too. Elevation was tough for me, but I would still highly recommend this course esp if you can combine it with the Grand Teton Half. I got the Double Grizzly medal for doing both. I wish I could have done the Quad but that would have meant more time at the races and less time exploring the national parks. super organized and fun race!

I would highly recommend doing at least one Vacation Race! Grand Teton Half was a tough course for me because of the elevation, but the scenery of the mountain views were so nice! Well organized race including packet pickup, start/ finish shuttles, and aid stations. Absolutely love the medal, and i highly recommend doing the Grizzly Double with the Yellowstone Half, if that’s an option. I wish I had more time to the Quad (5k& Halfs) but there was just so much to see in the National Parks, esp with my non-running fam. 🙂 The course had a nice mix of rolling hills, and it was mostly on a paved bike path or wide shoulders. All the volunteers and VR staff were great too! oh free photos too! Thanks VR!

PROS: Nice weather, net downhill race, and little traffic to contend with since it’s mostly on a bike path. Not much of an expo, but they had past shirts for just $2.
CONS: No spectator info on site, very crowded on the bike path for a few miles since it’s not very wide, also didn’t seem like enough volunteers at water stations – the one at mile 2 struggled to pour water out fast enough to runners. Also not very scenic since you’re on this path along the highway and the finish at Torrey Pines doesn’t actually end close enough to the beach. But the race gave me a chance to visit family in the area around the holidays, and complete state #30.

This night run was very interesting – a 6.5 mile out and back hilly course, so you have to run 2 laps of it for the half marathon. There’s also a section that drops onto a gravel path (slippery) to run by Blackwater Falls, but I wish it was lit up. Super dark along the course, but lighted vest and headlamp worked out fine. There were 3 aid stations along the course, which seemed sufficient. lots of snacks at the finish. nice ceramic medal, and lightweight hoodie! I would def recommend staying in one of the deluxe vacation cabins in the park – all within a 1/2 mile of start and packet pick up. And take a couple of days before or after to hike the trails in the park! (difficult to rate course scenery since it was in the DARK, but the stars were all out!)

Lovely point to point race, mostly downhill. all the race logistics were great – packet pickup, the shuttle, and aid stations. Beautiful sunrise views at the start, and the paved trail along the Virgin River was a great scenic course. First time i’ve ever had cbd muscle rub included in my swag bag!

The half and full run the first 11 miles together…over 7000 runners. Probably wouldn’t have been my first choice for a CT race if I wasn’t visiting local family. (I would have preferred one on the shoreline.) For a city race though, I appreciated the riverwalk section, the city streets and the finish through the arch at Bushnell Park. Great volunteer course support. Nice medal and shirt too!

This is mostly an out and back course that is super hilly, but I would still recommend this OR race! Cute little town, with gorgeous views over the Bridge of the Gods and through the paved trail course. Race logistics were great – shuttle, aid stations and esp the post-race lunch (with real food – carribean rice and chicken plus a vegetarian option). highly recommend it!

They had a full wknd of all distances, even rucking options! Highlights of race wknd – the 5k on Sat had 5 DJs on course, a confetti gun start for each corral for the half/full, and there was amazing neighborhood/course support – music, jello shots, beer and blood marys, donuts, candy, cookies, and tissues.

The course is hilly about the first 3 miles, and the last 10 miles are a very comfortable downhill trail (does not require trail shoes) course from crazy horse to Hill City. Shaded course though, so I was happy with long sleeves. Loved the medal and shirt design. Well organized and every aid station had water, powerade and fruit. Visiting the area also gave me a chance to visit 3 National Parks and Custer State Park. Gorgeous scenery and wildlife. The only tough part was that it’s considered off-season there, so many restaurants/shops were closed or closed early.

I loved this as my 1st marathon; unfortunately I was injured so I didn’t do as well as I hoped. But this course is one I would definitely consider running again. Small, well organized and supported point to point race. I loved running along the packed dirt road along the Green River and over a few bridges. It’s also a net downhill course, so I think alot of people usually PR it. Very scenic! The weather was great on race day, if maybe a bit warm, but with the tree-cover, it was perfect.
