My experience with this race was beyond my expectations. I completely recommend this race to anyone. My race stuff came in right on time. My swag was perfect and the medal was beautiful which also included a keychain and now I’m reminded of my half every time i have my keys with me. It will for sure be a memorable race for me. I loved my bondi band too and the shirt as well. Loved the race so I really recommend it for anyone who likes virtual.

The race was virtual this year, so I had the opportunity to run at my own time and pace🔥. It was a wonderful race and the swag was amazing. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the hoodie. So pretty as well as the metal and the details. I wish I would have done this race in person, but just being able to have had the support online from my running community was awesome. I really enjoyed it virtually. I took pictures and my husband even took a few shots of me with my medal❤️ It was worth it!!! As far as my training goes, I followed Hal Higdons intermediate training plan. Always have and love it. Im such a free spirit, sometimes I just run and go with the flow, but having followed the plan has helped me get stronger on my long runs❤️. It was a great race overall and I got my swag bag on time. Great race! I’d definitely consider doing this again next year and hopefully in person.

It was such a fun experience. The views were spectacular and the race comes down to the park by the fountain in fountain hills. The free ticket beer is awesome and you can enjoy it by the park or stop by the small restaurants they have nearby. It is a great race. The aid stations are great and they have them properly placed. Really enjoyed it all and I ran it with my best friend. The downfall, we ended up with coronavirus a few days later haha. Definitely not the races fault.

Great run after having my baby. It’s so fun watching all the women come together in this fun she run! It’s so empowering and so fun watching all the ladies come up with the cutest outfits. It’s a super girly race! I would love to do this race next time but with a big group of girlfriends. It was a night run so it was a little dark but still so fun. It went by faster than I thought. I would have loved it during the morning. I remember this was an evening run which i thought was just okay. I’m not a fan of evening races but i did it and it wasn’t so bad

This race was so organized and I truly enjoyed it so much. All the aid stations were as they should be. The views were fun only because I’m an Arizona native and I truly enjoyed going Into mesa neighborhood. I was very impressed. There was a lot of people but everyone was truly respectful of everyone’s space. The food after the race was bomb. There was goodies everywhere. I’ve been to races where the food is scarce. Not at this race haha. It was everything I hoped for. I was happily greeted by my family and loved seeing their faces be proud of mommy.
