Average Rating:  
Recent Review: My favorite marathon to date. A great destination marathon with exceptional experiences and spectacular scenery. I saw 56 wild horses and 1 golden eagle while running. Good organization and very friendly and helpful people. Forget about finishing times and spectators and re-discover the joy of running amidst some of the prettiest country you'll ever see. Coming downhill through the red rock canyons alone in the middle of the dirt road was truly a spiritual experience.
