This was my first year running LDM and it was absolutely fantastic! The course was breathtaking and the volunteers were wonderful! This was one of the most organized events that I have been to. I will be back next year for sure!!
Laura Mostosky - Mesa, AZ
You guys rock! Always a great race! Love that you are super organized, signs and parking is easy, you start on time (huge win!) and you support the runners through the entire course! The shirts and medals rock - the facebook tracking of the runners worked pretty good - except it didn't show the finish but all is all an excellent race! Can't wait to run again next year!!!! Don't change a thing!
Anna Schettino - Scottsdale
The Lost Dutchman Marathon continues to be the GEM in the desert of small marathons!! Always better then the many crowded big city marathons that are being held all over the country.
This is a race that consistently gets it RIGHT year after year. From the unique campfire start to the great support on the course all the way to THE WALL¯ near the finish. It all makes this race so different and enjoyable!
