This is my favorite race to run every year! The organizers and volunteers do a fabulous job to make this a successful Arizona running event.
Sandra Juhl - Panora, IA
A great destination event. Traveling from the Midwest to the Valley of the Sun for a race was a joy! Everyone was friendly and helpful, from the staff at Prospector Park, to the wonderful volunteers, to the enthusiastic runners and spectators. The LDM organization did a fantastic job handling the enormous crowds. The weather could not have been better in my opinion, but, again, I was coming from Michigan where I had not seen bare pavement in months! If I had the means, I would run this event every year!
The marathon start and the first six miles were absolutely magical with the pre-dawn campfires, full moon, and then the sunrise giving way to a beautiful desert scape!
Teresa Scalard - Kansas City, MO
Wow! Excellent organization and execution of a race; from registration to packet pick up to race day. It was fun, stress free and professionally orchestrated. Great Job! Can't wait for next year. Special thanks to all the wonderful and friendly volunteers, Police Officers and Park Rangers who added to the ease of the day.
