More participant feedback:
"THANK YOU for organizing such a fun, great race! I had a blast and even though I'm a slow runner, did a personal best! This race was very well organized...The water stops were so much fun, and the APD was stellar. Thank you for your hard work in getting this race together, and I look forward to doing it again next year!" - Christie
"Just wanted to reiterate how I thought this was a real first-class race. From the port-a-lets (quantity and quality) to the course and water stops, all the way to the keg of beer and sausage wraps - you really outdid yourself. I had been looking forward to this event for some time, and you certainly did not disappoint. Heard a lot of glowing comments - one of my favorites was: "I actually smelled better when I came out of the port-a-let than when I went in!" Way to go, Man!" - John
"I am writing to let you know how enjoyable the race was yesterday. I ran with a few friends, including one who had come into town from Virginia, and we all had a great time!" - Lisa
