Thank you very much.  I appreciate the effort.  What a great race.  I loved that course.  First time I have done it and it may have been the first 1/2 trail run I have been able to race.  I was very impressed with your organization.  Thanks for being professional but still fun.

Thank you for putting on such a fun race. The trail was tough, but fun and beautiful views. The aide stations were perfectly stocked with stuff we needed (thanks for having coke), and the food afterwards was great. Thanks to the race directors and the volunteers as well. I will plan on doing this race again next year.

Thank you sooooo much. You guys really out on a high quality run akin with the old run uphill racing ones.
~ Best, Karen

Great race guys. I’ve never run the Black Squirrel before, although I’ve done a dozen or so other 1/2s. This was by far the hardest, but also one of the most fun. Well organized start. Great support (especially given the terrain). Great volunteers. Post-race party was awesome; I like getting a beer glass instead of another metal that I’ll just put in a drawer.

Thank you for all of the hard work you put into making this a success.
