Beautiful and easy course with snow and ice throughout. Great camaraderie amongst runners too! The volunteers were awesome in the at times chilly weather with abundant hydration stations stocked with Nuun, regular water, and gels.

I thought the event was great all around. Course is really nice, especially the loop up on the Mesa. Well organized, everything was on time following the schedule posted, and there were a surprising number of supporting volunteers throughout the course. Ran it last year as well and had a similar great experience, and plan to be back again next year!
