from a few of past years runners:
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.
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!
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: juno.com
Thank you and keep up the great work............and the
for a beautiful and fun run. I can see why the members of
my club love it so (Locomotion). It was my first Provo River
1/2. Thanks for all your efforts. I enjoy also hearing from
you through email.
