I've been planning on attending this event for a year and I am so glad that I chose the LDM to run my first 10K. The views of the Superstitions at sunrise was amazing! I'll be back soon.
Such a great race that is so organized and loaded with friendly people (volunteers/staff/participants). This was my third year (previous 10k, 8k, and back to 10k this year) thinking about going for the half-marathon next year. Thank you to the organizers and volunteers for making it such an enjoyable experience. Well done!
A beautiful race. The event was well set up and the volunteers were wonderful. This was my first LD race. I ran the 10K and plan on coming back next year to do the 13.1.
This is an excellent race against an absolutely gorgeous back drop!! This was my first race here and I can't wait to sign up for next year's race!!
Thank You, Every water stop on the 10K course was PERFECT!! Kudos to all the volunteers and the management of the LDM!! I will be back next year to claim another AWESOME Finisher's MEDAL!!! God Bless U
I have been wanting to be at one of the Lost Dutchman race events for a number of years, but finally made the 10K this year. The race is awesome. Absolutely beautiful. I love that the # of race participants is limited, and that the money stays right in our community. I will be training for the 1/2 marathon for next year, and want to come for as many years going forward as I am able. Thank you for a wonderful event!
My first Lost Dutchman, my first 10k. Had such a great time! It's nice to have clear mile markers and lots of potties. Runners don't ask for much! Rockin' medals, loved my 10K run.
