    Sounded good until you click on the race/ride link. $195?!!! Well, it says "all inclusive" so maybe that's OK . It seems to give you quite a bit. It even mentions dinner! And a tour! Oh but wait, read further and now it's not all inclusive. You have to pay extra for the food and the tour. Oh well. Sounded somewhat decent. No race ever is worth $2/mile btw.

    Actually it says you get two meals and the tour but if you need a bike your rental isn't included. Also says you get a hoodie and a belt buckle.. Says additional meals i.e. family or spectators are not included.... I 've done a few Leadville race and have gotten far less for 200$-400$ for those races.. Here is what it says - "Friday night pasta and chili cook-off, well-marked courses with multiple fully stocked aid stations approximately every 10 miles, timing and scoring, post-race BBQ meal on Saturday, award ceremony with live music on Saturday, event hoodie sweatshirt, finishers belt buckle metals, medical support, and the Escape Adventures led day tour/ride of the Upper North Rim of the Grand Canyon including gourmet lunch on Sunday. Accommodations are not included. Bikes not included, but can be rented through Escape Adventures."

    Brother I think you mis understood, looks to me like it
    Tells info about what the meals are and what it cost for
    Spectators which is not included.
    Also the other info below is referring to the price and what's
    Included in the non-all inclusive options. Future more I'm
    Registered and spoke to the race director directly and she confirmed
    I get 2 meals, hoodie, race support, tour,
    Belt buckle, swag bag, and fully stocked aid stations
    and they are thinking about Adding a breakfast on Sunday. Most the races I've Done (about 9 a year) are 100$-200$ and I get 1 meal and a t-shirt I never wear

    Thanks for clarifying. It really does sound cool but the amenities and mandatory swag need to be optional. Still intrigued.
