Excellent race. The volunteers were plentiful and full of encouragement. The lead cyclists kept nice even paces. The breakfast afterwards was great.
Thanks to everyone that helped out.

Thank you for your review!
I apologize for what one of our volunteers said to you, I can assure you our volunteers were only directed to give positive encouragement to the participants in the race. Congratulations on your race and we hope to see you out next year!

I must agree this was a great race, good cause, fun and very well organized. Volunteers were awesome. I will definitely participate in this race in the future.

Excellent race. First time running and I completely had fun. A volunteer at the water stop before the trail was very discouraging when she criticized me eating the snack bar that I got in my race packet. Whenever I've done a long run with the running room they always encourage us to have a bar on hand, and I explained it to her. Even though her thoughts were different, perhaps she can keep them to herself next time and be more encouraging. I almost let her bring me down but I pushed through it and remembered why I was there. :) Good job overall and kudos to the chefs/organizers. See yas next year!

There is clearly a great deal of organizing that takes place to put on an event this big - 3 running events and 2 walking events. There is something for everyone.
This race will become a destination event one day and Denise would be pleased and proud of the 300+ walker/runners and the numerous volunteers all coming together in the name of wellness. She would demand perfection and accept that which was out of her control. She too would have thought the day was perfect.
Congratulations to the race committee - a job well done.

Like Cathy said, it's great charity and was very well organized. Everyone involved with the race was very helpful.

The routes were scenic and well laid out.

It's a great race for anyone wanting to run to support the charity but the great routes and chip timing also make it an excellent race for anyone wanting to truly race it.

Congratulations to everyone involved....I'd highly recommend it to anyone.
