What a fantastic community!  Loved every second of the race and every inch of the (horribly steep) hills.  Thank you for the wonderful race, the organization was superb and the support was the BEST!!!  Hope I can run this again in the future.


Such an awesome event with unbelievable support from the community.  There were people cheering with signs and costumes at every intersection.  The whole town came out to participate or watch.  Sam G.
