With 44 days remaining in the countdown to my next marathon, I spent a good portion of the morning reading up on and looking at pictures of Big Cottonwood Canyon in Utah. Of course, this is the location of my next race, the Hoka One One Revel Big Cottonwood Marathon.
I was chosen to represent @RunRevel as an Ambassador, which is quite an honor. I am already in love with this race, and I haven’t even stepped foot in Utah yet. Why? I run with not only my feet, but majorly with my eyes. I don’t listen to music when I run, not in races and not even while on training runs. My focus is always on the “eye candy”. The Big Cottonwood race looks to be one of the most beautiful races around. With one of the most beautiful race courses, this race shapes up to be one that I will never forget. 42 days until my plane lands in Salt Lake City, and the picture taking begins. I may even stop to take a photo or two during the race. Maybe. Yes, this is a downhill, fast course, but I won’t risk missing a BQ to snap a picture at this race. There are millions of photos of Big Cottonwood Canyon online.
Check out some of these photos I found. How can you not fall in love? I already have.
As a race ambassador, I can offer anyone who wants to run one of the Revel races a discount off the current registration price. The next price increase is coming soon, so if you jump on board now, you can save money. Let me know if you are interested, and I can hook you up with a discount.
The Revel Rockies race in Denver, CO is August 17th.
Revel Big Cottonwood in Salt Lake City, UT is September 13th.
Revel Canyon City in Los Angeles, CA is November 15th.
