Mountainside Spa is excited to be a part of the Drop 13 Half Marathon on June 10. Since it ends right in front of the spa, we will be there in full support. Come to the hydration station where we will be handing out our new, all-natural hydration water. M Stiks made by M.Network are a great way to get a Powerade or Gatorade-like drink that is good for you. It is a healthy drink full of electrolytes to replenish your body and help you recover.
The spa will be offering several other benefits for runners and any spectators at our tent.
For runners, the finish line is set up with Massage Therapy and Facials. We will have swag bags for runners that will include Spa Bucks that can be used toward any service. You’ll want to sign up for our Racer’s Booking Special, a 60-minute massage for $60, including free sore muscle therapy.
The Perfect Race
This race is about more than just the finish line. If you are looking to run your first half marathon, or add another race medal to your collection, the Drop 13 Half Marathon is the perfect event for you. With 1100 runners from all different experience levels, this is an ideal race with:
- The temperatures are perfect. At the beginning of the race, it typically is around 50 degrees. By the time it ends, it is in the mid to low 70’s which means you don’t have to run in the heat. It’s also ideal temperature levels for your supporters to cheer you on.
- It is all downhill. The race steadily declines 3000 feet of elevation over the entire race. It’s gradual, which helps you go faster without a lot of knee-jarring, helping runners set a new personal record. If you’re running for the first time, it’s a great course to build up your confidence.
- You can’t beat the scenery. Running down the canyon gives you beautiful surroundings, including rivers, pine trees, and more. You won’t feel bored looking at this route.
We’re excited to play with Drop 13 for the 2nd year in a row. Come run the race, cheer on the racers, or hang around the finish line. No matter why you come, be sure to drop by the Mountainside Spa tent for a little moment to relax before you run on to the rest of your day.
