Testimonials from past participants:

“I love your race!  Unique and fun!”  - Char

“I want to thank you for organizing such a wonderful event.  The larger events like this are a little more difficult to organize but you did a superior job.”  - Dug

“I came all the way from SFO to run and I was not disappointed.  I run a lot of races and this was one of the most well organized and put together I have ever done.  From the beginning to the end.  The website to the bib pickup to the race day to closing.  Entertainment, food, awards and prizes.  Thank you, I will be back next year and I’m telling all my running friends.”  - Blanca
