Lost Dutchman is the best race in the East Valley.
Loved the race. Well put together and great amenities! Easy packet pick up, ample water stops, and post race food. Shirts and medals are nice quality.
The race was great from start to finish. Great pre-event info. Great start and finish. Great announcer making a especially fun finish. Thank you to the great volunteers. The photos and videos online were really great. We came from out of state for our second LDM and plan enthusiastically to come to the third.
Always a well-run, beautiful, and fun race for me. I've done the half and 10k over 10 years now and will be back again next year! LOVE all your volunteers and sponsor booths too!
My 10th LDM 10K. Fantastic! Perfect weather, perfect setting!
World class leader in panoramic vista, an absolute unforgettable experience everyone should enjoy every year.
Fantastic weather and great run!
Best race I have done in years. Gorgeous views, beautiful course, easy parking, great start time, many distance options, no traffic, and best of all Amazing Volunteers. This was my first Lost Dutchman race but definitely not my last. I will be back next year. Thank you for such a well organized race.
The Lost Dutchman Race 2023 was amazing! So well organized and beautiful as we ran towards the gorgeous Superstition Mountains. No traffic fumes like other Phoenix area races (we had the roads to ourselves). The venue was perfect and the vibe was low-key. After race food was great... Getting there was easy and the volunteers did an expert job of keeping things well organized. Loved this event and will sign up for next year's race!
The race is fantastic! I do it every year. Love how they always give back to the community.
This was my first time running this race and I was impressed at how well organized it was. The logistics went smoothly and the field size was ideal. The scenery was stunning!
We've done this race several years and it is one of our favorites. Beautiful area, well organized, great premiums and great medals. Only one year, with rain was it miserable but, Mother Nature!
Great event - beautiful scenery.
I love this race because of the great view of Superstition Mountain. It is a well organized race.
