Reviews

Great atmosphere and motivating staff

Wonderful event. What made it special is the woman on the microphone was very energetic and welcoming to all the runners arriving to the park. She was motivating, funny and full of energy. The bag drop staff were lovely and the warm up was good. I love how your name gets called out over the finish line and that there are always photos of you running. The supportive atmosphere is the best thing about these events. Thank you!
