My wife and I traveled from Vt. to the LDM in January of this year to escape the cold NorthEast for the 2nd running of this small marathon. We have each done over 50 marathons in many locations and without a doubt, LDM is a gem. Every detail was well thought out. The venue is spectacular and the organization could not have been better. It is obvious that the entire community of Apache Jct. embraces this race.Hats off to the race organization.
