“The route was breathtaking, the race was so well organized and had such enthusiasticly manned water/gatorade stations every three kilometers (with spotless, well placed port-o-potties). The community spirit was abundantly present along the entire route. The volunteers were the best of ANY race I’ve run in the past! Their generosity in spirit, enthusiasm and community was above anything I have ever experienced. If I was to pick and promote one half marathon, this would be the one. See you next year.” – Infrawgnito

“I must say the volunteers were incredible beyond words – so generous of their time, energies, spirit and sense if pride in their community. I was so grateful to be a part of it all. Please thank each and everyone of them for their hard work and energies they gave to make our race so exceptional and life long memorable. I will promote this race to everyone who will listen to me recount the many memories I took from your half marathon. “ - Tammi M
