A few comments from 2021 participants

  • I had an amazing first half marathon trail race experience! Thank you so much!
  • It was a great experience for my first half marathon. The information provided was clear and useful. The shirt and completion medal were great. All the people who organized and volunteered for the event were supportive and so friendly:) I had a great time!!!!
  • Really appreciated the virtual option! I’ve done many this year and yours has been one of the best. Registration was clear & the medal and t-shirt arrived in the mail in a timely manner (actually they arrived on race day!).
  •  Absolutely fantastic experience. Everyone was so helpful and friendly.  Only comment would be the last mile or so (on the pavement and uphill) but still it was an amazing course and event. Well done.
  • Your PA System Sucked
  • Really liked the trickle start.
  • Hi Randy and Tia: Just want to personally thank you both for an outstanding event. This was my first trail walking 1/2 marathon, and I truly had a fantastic time. Everything from picking up my packet to crossing the finish line was perfect. You both (and all the sponsors and volunteers) are awesome.Thanks for being patient and answering all my questions and concerns before. It really helped to make me feel comfortable about the event and timing. I will be back!!
