What do runners have to say about the ZYY!?

Wonderful event. Dick Daymont’s infectious enthusiasm and hospitality make this a very special and unique event. The St. Olaf Women’s Cross Country Team and local Land of 10,000 Aches running club make this a marathon not to be missed by going above and beyond with volunteer support.

I know it sounds crazy – 150 laps on an indoor track? But it really is a lot of fun: with great organization, a water stop always less than a minute away and someone cheering you on every lap, what’s not to like? Hopefully, my schedule will permit me to run this race again sometime.

What a hoot! As unusual as it sounds, this is a great event. The race director does a fantastic job and really keeps everyone going. While 150 laps in a field house sounds odd, it means 150 cheers from the lap counters. Perfect temperature, soft surface, and no wind. I had a great time.

I wish I could give the The Zoom! Yah! Yah! Marathon higher than a 5-star rating. The race (course and field size) is unique. The organization and support are exceptional. This was my 88th marathon and as a rule I don’t repeat marathons. This race is one for which I would make an exception to that rule. For me, the experience at Zoom! Yah! Yah! rates right up there with Boston, NYC and London.
