Some Feedback From Our Participants: "The Arizona Distance Classic Half Marathon was the best-run race we have ever participated in! Thank you for this race that is in such a beautiful place, at a wonderful time of year, with fabulous support on the course and an opportunity to buy VIP privileges (portapotties with no lines is an excellent concept)." - Virginia 

Awesome race! You guys did an AMAZING job planning this race. 

I loved this race!! Of course, the weather was perfect, but so were the course, the organization, the host hotel, the t-shirts, bibs and medals! 

Great Job! The snow capped mountains were picture perfect, which I'm sure you arranged for race day. The race was one of the best organized races I've attended. This is definitely a race to be on everyone's calendar. 

Just wanted to let you know that this race was absolutely awesome! I live in Phoenix and this is the first year I ran in your race. The course was perfect with all the rolling hills and the scenery was just spectacular.

I did the half and my wife did the quarter. You guys rock! The whole experience was awesome as usual. This is our 3rd straight year running this race. Thank you to all the volunteers you where all great!

Awesome race with the challenging hills and the breathtaking scenery! Thanks for the great work of putting this on! Made the trip from Michigan totally worth it!!

What a great race. Exceptionally well organized on a beautiful course. 

Race was superb. Flawlessly executed.
