Reviews

I was worried both about the course not being closed to traffic and about running in direct sunlight. I had no issues with close calls with cars as the cops were out in force keeping traffic slow. The course was also mostly shady with the exception of miles 0-2.5 and the same stretch on the return. There were also plentiful water stations- 8 within 13.1 miles is amazing! This was only my 6th half marathon, but it was my favorite and I’ll definitely be back. Especially like the fun & happy shirt design this year. Thank you to the race director for organizing such a fun event.     Kirsten Amrine — 5 star

Really happy with the way the race was organized this time! Hats off to Ginger for doing a great job, and in re-estabilishing what should be a wonderful race for years to come. I ran this last December (my first) and was extremely disappointed and had misgivings about this one, but decided to give it another shot as it's in my home town and was not let down, (even got my water bottle promised from last December)!     Tom Sorensen -- 5 star

Fantastic summer race. Many Great aid stations with wonderful volunteers, cops circling the race route made it very safe, signs up all over the route warning cars to slow down, new race director did an amazing job setting this up. Will definitely do this one again. Loved the music, goodies, and free stretches from the chiropractic office that was there. My family had a great time.     Cherria Kimbrell  --- 5 star

Super fun course, beautiful scenery rolling past. Got a new PR here today and Ginger and everyone made the event one to remember with an awards ceremony that followed the race. Definitely coming back next year, and would recommend to anyone looking for a well done event!      Erik Hasselquist -- 5 star

My husband and I both ran the Yukon DoIt Half Marathon this morning. Thank you Ginger Johnson for putting on such a beautiful race! Loved running along the water, into the park and back along the water to finish. And we both PR’d ?     Julie Rogers -- 5 star

I have done the winter edition since 2011, and I loved it! So to have a summer edition was just as amazing! I have to congratulate Ginger and the volunteers for doing an awesome job! Every event has a hiccup but everything worked out! I’m just a runner enjoying the event and I’m sure there is a lot of work to hold an event, so “WELL DONE!” to everyone! I hope to see the winter edition this December! BIG THANK YOU to everyone!     Rose Quitugua Castro -- 5 star

Great run today! Nice T shirts, Nice weather, Nice finisher medal, nice course (hotter than in December though!) nice people, and good friends. Thank you volunteers for your time and Yukon organizers for your hard work!     David Williams --4 star

Very easy check-in/bib pickup. Nice short color. Fast course. Convenient parking. While I wish the camels were out to get pics of, the weather helped to have amazing views. Great race. Lots of aid stations (8!)     Christy Hammond -- 5 star
