Death Valley Trail Marathon Medal (2011)

The 2011 Death Valley Trail Marathon was technically cancelled by the race director due to 70 MPH winds up in the Titus Canyon. However, that didn’t stop a group of us from meeting and deciding to hold the marathon ourselves.  About 40-50 runners went over to the canyon there in Death Valley, braved the winds, and ran a memorable marathon that none of us will ever forget.

    Now THAT is a cool medal. Now that I’ve had the chance to travel a little, I’d really like to do some of these destination marathons (so far all I’ve crossed off is Niagara Falls – great race I might add). I’d like to do the Route 66, Grand Canyon, Death Valley, etc…are there any others that are great places to visit and great places to run a marathon?
