Emails from a few of past years runners:

(This is what they said about Provo Canyon the run). Terrific event! Thank you. The course was hypnotically gorgeous. Forget making good time, relax and enjoy this special event is my own recommendation. Since I was recovering from an injury, I had little choice but was determined not to miss this run. This event deserves a high rank among the nation's best runs. No runs like this in Florida where I had been running until this year. I am never going back to Florida. Larry Kase, Park City I wanted to say thanks for opportunity to participate in one of the best Half Marathons I have run. It was science, extremely well organized and well thought out. Great job to all involved I look forward to next year. Joh Maack
Hi Guys, Thank you for what was the best organized race that I have participated in since moving here last year. I plan to make this an annual one for me. Please send me info again for next year. My E-mail address will be the same. Thanks again!

Dear Provo River 1/2 marathon, Thank you for all your hard work this year to make this run absolutely a joy for me and many others. I loved it. This was my first year because in the past I have not been able to get in. It works great into my training program for St George marathon. I would appreciate it if I could be considered to run this race again next year. Please email me at the appropriate time: Thank you and keep up the great work............and the great running.
