Stunningly well organized race experience. Everything about the day was just beautiful and well executed. So inspirational and fun, I would like to come work for you. Of course, it didn't hurt that I won my age group so my opinion might be slightly biased. ;)
Beautiful, fun and hilly course!
Everyone involved in the course was helpful and friendly. The aid stations were fantastic and there were plenty throughout the course. The course was hilly but the views were beautiful. Love, love, love this race!
One of the most beautiful courses I’ve ever run!
The course was challenging but one of the most beautiful courses I’ve ever run. Great event, as always, Vacation Races!
Such a fun and beautiful race
This was such a fun and beautiful race. And the three days of camping were awesome, right near the finish line.
Rocky mountain and Joshua Tree were the two hardest races I've done, but they were completely worth it! Grand Canyon has so far been my favorite! Beautiful course, spirited people, and amazing staff. Not to mention the race shirts always have great designs! My goal is to complete all NP half marathons. I will be doing Zion, Yosemite, and hopefully Lake Powell next year 2018! Thank you Vaction Races for the fun times and everlasting memories.
