“A runner said she looked up [the] 10 most scenic races in the country, and this one popped up,” Cartwright said.

“Super fantastic half! The views were breathtaking, people wonderful and oh, the food last night and post race,” Sonya-Lee Zezza of Saint George said of the race and surrounding events.

Travis Kroot of Cumberland was the first finisher in 1:21:12, while Julia Holland of Park City, Utah was the first female finisher, 13th overall in 1:39:01.

Hand-made pottery mugs were awarded in the winning categories.

Cartwright said the event raised $25,000 to help children come to Blueberry Cove and Tanglewood camps.

“It’s not just about money. It’s about community and the joy of running and spending time together outdoors. A lot of volunteers, camp staff and local merchants who donate food made it possible. The weather was perfect. I’m a happy camper,” Cartwright said.
