  • Did the event in 2018

    I really really enjoyed this race, it had a lot of unique things that I had not experienced in a race before and of course setting a new half marathon PR after more than 4 years since I had set my previous PR leaves you with really good feelings in regards to a race.I flew in to Salt Lake City on Friday afternoon, got picked up by my cousin at the airport and drove straight to Provo so I could pick up my packet at the EXPO. Plan on at least 45 minutes to an hour to Provo from the airport.EXPO: The expo was quite small and so was the parking lot associated with it, although parking was free. Packet pick up was quick and easy and had several freebies in the bag. Overall nothing special about the expo other than a few booths but it is a small race so it is about what you would expect.T-Shirts/SWAG: The T shirt for this race is a little unique, it had bright red sleeves and a black shirt. The utah valley logo on the front and giant "Pain You Enjoy" letters on the back. I actually like the shirt in the sense that it stands out from the rest of my race shirts but i definitely heard some complaints that people didn't care for it. The race medal was really nice, it is a large spinner medal so the outside of the medal is a solid ring with a disc in the middle that can spin. Another unique addition to my collection, the only negative would be that it doesn't have anywhere to have my name and PR time engraved but I still really like it. Another thing they do that I liked is that the race bib isn't simiply a rectangle. The top of the bib is jagged and has a mountainous design, I have done a few other races that did something unique like this but little touches like this are things that I love about a race.PARKING/ACCESS: This is a point to point course so you park near the finish and take a bus up to the start in the mountains. Parking was at a shopping mall and more than abundant. The buses were easy to find and had plenty of room although I got there pretty early so there wasn't much of a line yet. Once on the bus you drive up a highway into the mountains where they drop you off at the start area. There were plenty of outhouses at the start, especially if you kept walking towards the start line from the drop off area and didn't just stop at the first one you found. One thing to know though is that even during the summer it gets very cold up there at 4:30 am, waiting for the 6am start time. They do however have camp fire barrels set up along the start area to keep warm which I really welcomed. They had a big truck right by the start line to check your bag which really just meant have your bag labeled and throw it in the back of a UPS truck but that did allow you to keep your warm up clothes on until only 10-15 minutes before the race. As for getting back to your car after the race the finish and the parking lot are over a mile apart and while you could walk it they do have buses to get you there which were easy to use.Course/Aid Stations/Elevation: Aid stations were spaced every 2 miles or so throughout the course and were well stocked with water and electrolytes. Because you are running through a canyon there isn't much crowd support during the majority of the course until you get near Provo/the finish but you don't really mind it. The canyon portion of the course is very pretty, there are waterfalls and nice views and while you are running the sun is rising so it only adds to the beauty. As for the elevation I found this to be the easiest elevation race I have ever run. It was almost entirely a very very gentle downhill with only 2 minor uphills. The great part about the downhills was that the gradient was so slight that it helped you keep running fast while never feeling like you were pounding your knees trying to slow yourself down as you would if you were running down a steeper hill. The only reason I didn't rate this as a 1 star elevation difficulty is that all downhill running can be very hard on your quads. I'm sure the people in the full marathon felt it, I didn't have any issues during my race but during the next 1-3 days I thought it was weird that my quads were really sore until I realized that the elevation is what did it. I'm sure some people started to feel it during the race which could at least add a little difficulty. This race is made for you to PR and I managed to finish in 1:29:56 for a PR, finally breaking 1:30.Race Management: I really enjoyed the execution of this race. Bussing to the start was smooth, fires and plenty of bathrooms at the start was great. They have a beautiful downtown finish location by the courthouse after you pass by BYU (the edge of campus so unless you know its there you wouldn't assume it was a university you were passing). They have several other nice touches like a PR gong which you can ring, you tube videos of the finish so that you can see how you finished, and FREE pictures. They had finish time printouts which you could get to show your results.They also had lots of free food at the finish including popsicles and cinnabon. The bag pickup area is a little concerning because they just lay everyones bags out and you just grab yours with no real security but it didn't seem to be an issue.I do want so give one final shoutout to the race management for going above and beyond for me. For the first time in my life I placed in my age group at a race but I didn't realize that they gave awards out all the way to 5th in your age group instead of 3rd so after my wife finished we went home. I later realized that if I had waited around for 15 more minutes I would have recieved by agre group award but by that time I had already flow home to Washington state, after several emails I was able to get a hold of the race director who I offered to send money to in order to ship me my plaque. They said they would figure something out and then shipped it to me for free. I know it only cost them a few dollars but it did take their time and it was just a really nice gesture on their part which I appreciate. I have my eye on this race for future years when I might try to get my full marathon BQ here.

    If you're looking for a Utah Race, please come run this one! I flew into SLC and rented a car to make the 45 min drive to Provo, but you could easily fly into the Provo Airport if it was feasible.Expo: Smaller side, but still a good amount of stuff. Since it was a Saturday race, the Expo was 10-9 on Friday. Some running stores and other races to sign up for. Bib Look up could be improved on, as you didn't have a way of looking it up before the expo, so people were crowding around the bib look up table. Flow was otherwise easy to do.Race Day: Saturday, 6 AM start time for the half and the fullTransport to the Start: for the half, buses left from the Provo Town Center. For the full, there was a separate pick up point. Buses for the half ran from 315 AM to 430 AM for a 6 AM start and it took about 20 minutes to get to the half marathon start line. Be sure to have a blanket or sweats or something because it was dark and chilly!At the start: It's the half way point for the full, so plenty of port a potties. Also, fire pits were set up to keep you warm, which was a plus. Bag drop was a truck that took bags to the start, but the guys could have not thrown (literally thrown) everything into the back of the truck. My only wish was that there were buses that ran later to the start (say 5 AM), because waiting for 90 minutes for the start was rough.The Course: Maybe one minor hill for the entire half marathon course. Literally, was all downhill. My first mile was 10:50 only because I had to make a bathroom pit stop and over the course of the race, I was able to make up all the time. The course is very scenic and not a whole lot of spectator support, but I didn't mind surprisingly. Plenty of rock faces, scenery, etc to enjoy! Beware around mile 8 of the half marathon. The 10K joins up here after doing their first mile or so off the main course. We got stuck with some of the back packers and spent time/energy weaving around walkers spread 5 across.Water Stops: Every 2 miles for the first 10 miles and then every mile to the end. Plenty of water and powerade. I just wish that they tables would have been more spread out and a few more at each station because some got crowdedFinish area: PR'ed at 1:55:42. Able to get my medal, water and food fairly easily. I also got to ring the PR bell coming out of the chute. Also was able to do results look up and get a print off of my time. Plenty of vendors, etc. Bag pick up was essentially bags laid out on open grass and you essentially had to find your own bag and hope that no one took it. There were also shuttles back to Provo Town Center, which was where I picked up the shuttle to the start. Definitely a must do race!

    I ran the Utah Valley Half Marathon in 2017. I like downhill running, so for me, this was a great race. However, if your knees, hips or other body parts do not like downhill running, I would avoid this race. The grade was not terribly steep but the first 10 miles or so are definitely on a down-hill grade, and on a highway, so the combination of hard surface ad grade can catch some people off-guard.The expo for this race was quiet, did not have a lot of vendors, and so the check-in process was quick.My biggest complaint about this race is that you cannot drive to the start. You drive to the finish and take a bus to the start. The bus drops you at the start more than an hour before the race. It is cold and dark and although there are bonfires and porta-potties, I would have preferred to be in bed that extra hour.Once the race started it was great. The water stations were frequent enough and the volunteers were awesome. About 10 miles into the race, you start to come into Provo, the road is flatter (less downhill) and there is a fair amount of spectator/crowd support.I had a hard time meeting up with family at the finish. It was hard to transition from "runner-only areas to public areas. Also, my gear drop bag from the start had the tag ripped off so it took a good 30 minutes to locate my bag with my sweats and jacket inside. But we did find it, so in the end all was good. The finisher medal was cool, and the race jacket was nice. Also, all finishers received a gift certificate toward a purchase at a local jeweler. I am not local so never used mine but it was a really nice perk.

    Waddle Ranch Trail Half - Race Report by Big Blue Ambassador Mone' HaenThe Waddle Rach Half Marathon took place on June 4th, 2017 and is part of the Truckee Running Festival and the Tahoe Trail Running Series put on by Big Blue Adventure.If you’re a local Truckee runner, you have likely “explo-run-ed” Waddle Ranch. If you haven’t, you should as it’s one of the many local trail running/hiking treasures that the area has to offer. The half marathon starts and finishes at Riverview Sports Park in a mini “race village” amongst very high-energy event staff, volunteers, announcer (can I please have whatever coffee he drinks in the morning) and participants. Besides the fact that there are 5K and 10K options for family and friends to run, the Park is a great place for spectators and family to hang out as there’s plenty to keep them busy along the lines of a playground, bocce court, the Truckee Bike Park, etc.Once the Big Blue crew gives the pre-race speech, and the very enthusiastic GO signal is given, you’re off. The first 1.6 miles of the course is very flat (not Tahoe flat) and is comprised of getting out of the park itself, running a short distance on pavement (Joeger Drive) and then on fire road. Here you pass behind the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District Bus Dispatch Center. If you’ve ever been late to pick up your kid from the bus, you’ve likely been here to collect him/her (not that I would know anything about that). Anywhooooooo…… It’s a pretty meadow with scenic views to the east.At 1.6 miles you begin a short climb on pavement which takes you up to Martis Creek Road. The climb itself is only about a quarter of a mile, but you then stay on pavement for about a mile. I know pavement – ew, but the views of Martis Valley, Martis Creek Lake and Waddle Ranch (where you’ll be running) are very pretty, so consider it an opportunity to look around before you have to pay attention to not tripping on rocks.After you cross the dam (at about 2.2 miles into the race), you finally hit dirt via Matt’s Trail in the Waddle Rach Preserve. It’s relatively flat for about three-quarters of a mile and then you start to climb – for a solid mile. You’ll gain about 450 feet in elevation in this mile. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but it will put your legs and your lungs to the test. The trail here is mostly single track with some wider sections that look like they used to be fire roads. Run as much as you can – it’s only a mile. You peak out where Matt’s Trail intersects with Sawmill Road (don’t let the term fool you – it’s a fire road) and then you descend.The descent is fast since Sawmill Road is fairly “groomed” and doesn’t have a lot of wear and tear from runoff or loose rock. After about 1.2 miles, you divert off of Sawmill Road and back onto single track for a bit more technical running. This section lasts for just about a mile and then you re-connect with Sawmill Road and run just under a half-mile to the turnaround.Now begins your second ascent. The whole half marathon course has about 1,200 feet in total elevation gain, so that 450 feet you descended down before, you now have to climb back up. This section spreads the climb out over two miles so while it’s a bit gentler than your first climb, it seems like it lasts FOREVER. At 7.9 miles into the course you veer off of Sawmill Road and back onto single track via Erika’s Trail. You climb for about a half mile here and then begin a pretty technical (read rocky) decent. I constantly have to remind myself here to watch my ankles, stay on my toes and don’t let the feet get sloppy. That steep, technical descent lasts for about 3/4 of a mile and then it opens up onto less technical ground. At 9.5 miles the course flattens back out, albeit at a very gradual climb out to the pavement. Once you’re on the pavement, it’s a fast and flat return into the park where family, friends and spectators will be awaiting your arrival along with beer and a BBQ!

  • Did the event in 2017

    I was really excited to travel to Ca from Massachusetts to visit and ride in San Diego! I have never been to the area before, but have friends who moved there and talk about how bike friendly the area is.
    I arrived Friday at SD airport and picked up my rental car, rental bike from Nytro Multisport in Encinitas. I then made my way to Oceanside Pier for the packet pickup and expo. Oh!I was so excited with the ocean views, breeze, temps and just in awe :)
    We received a nice goodie bag with some coupons, and a pint glass :) I picked up my cycling jersey, which is sweet.
    There was no stress since its not a race, its a ride.
    Saturday morning 6:50am start was just beautiful, course was well marked, aid stations stocked with everything you need, and enthusiastic volunteers.
    Finish line had medals, bike valet, food trucks, beer tent, live music and more.
    I have a full review with more photos on my blog.
    I highly recommend this beautiful coastal course, as it offers 25, 50 and 100 mile options, at a very no stress level. Follow their Facebook and Instagram sites to stay updated, and they have contests on entries, shirts, gift certificates and more.
    Put this destination ride on your list. There's nothing like riding the coast of Ca!

    It's a good idea to bring your own nutrition. They had water and Gatorade on course but no gels, or snacks.
  • Did the Marathon in 2018

    This course is nice because it is relatively flat, although there are a few minor inclines to test the legs. I ran the marathon and the out and back (x2) format was a little difficult mentally but the cool ocean breeze and the ocean views made for a very nice race.

    Look around! This race is set in the desert but you have beautiful mountains with the river and Lake Mohave!
  • Did the 5K in 2018

    If you are looking for a fun, fast and not too crowded race, then you should check out Run Laughlin Half Marathon, 5K & 10K. From the time I checked in to the time I drove away fromt eh after party, I was all smiles. The only thing that is personally sad about this race, is that the 5K runners don't get the experience of running across the dam, across state line, across 2 time zones.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    You awaken as you walk through the muted sounds of slot machines paying out as you make your way to embark on your ride to the starting line. You're whisked away aboard a posh tour bus and arrive at Laughlin High School where you sit and stretch comfortably within the gym, away out of the cool morning temps. The course is well marked out and beware the miles that begin once you leave the High School grounds - miles 1.5 - 4 are a rigorous, gradual uphill. Abandon your goal pace - but you'll make it up in the later miles (promise). Once you turn onto Hwy 163, you run East into the rising sun as you happily descend for the next four miles. The scenery is spectacular. I encourage you to pause and take photos atop the Davis Dam - with Lake Mohave to the North and the Colorado River stretching out to the South. The course winds up on Casino Row and the finish party was first rate.

Running in the United States

Running is one of the most popular and easily accessible sports worldwide, and in the US approximately 60 million people went running last year. The oldest and most prestigious race in the US is the Boston Marathon in mid April. Limited to 30,000 participants, runners have to qualify to take part. To get to Boston you need a qualifying time in a certified marathon race. If you're aged 40-44, then you'd need to run the marathon in 3h10m for men and 3h44m for women. But, if you're not quite ready for Boston there are plenty of other epic races to choose from. Events like the New York Marathon, Marine Corps Marathon and LA Marathon also draw huge crowds of between 20,000 and 50,000 participants. Expect costumes, bands, and an electric atmosphere. You'll be having such a great time you won't even notice being overtaken by a guy dressed as Big Bird.

What you need to know about running

Running is for everyone, all you need are some trainers and jogging pants and off you go. There's a variety of events to suit everyone. If you're looking for short and regular events then Parkruns, color runs, 5k runs, and 10k runs are happening in a park near you. If you're looking for something a little longer then half marathons, marathons, and ultras might be the ones to aim for. Running is a sociable sport so expect to meet people from all walks of life and challenge yourself with new experiences. For beginners, the 5k runs and 10k runs are great starter events which will blend the challenge of running with a bit of fun too. Two of our favourites are BolderBoulder and the Cooper River Bridge Run. Here you'll see a great mix of abilities, a lot of fancy dress, and a big celebration at the finish line.

If you want to run something longer, have a look at our pages on the half marathon and marathon. Beyond the Boston Marathon, there are many other fun and famous events. If fancy dress is your thing, the Walt Disney World Marathon might be for you. Or if you want big city run but you're not ready for the full marathon, the New York Half is organized by New York Road Runners who also organize the famous New York Marathon.

Our final distance to consider is the ultramarathon, which is anything over the marathon distance of 26.2 miles. The key at these events is to make sure you're properly fueled up and prepared. These ultras can range from 30 to 150 miles long. The Golden Gate Trail Run includes one of the shorter ones at 50k and was very well reviewed by last year's runners. Don't try to steamroll these events, take your time, meet people along the way and enjoy what is usually some pretty awesome scenery.

Training for a running event

Training can be hard work, especially if you like to run solo. Working with a training plan helps to motivate you and to keep your training on the right track.
