Great course friendly volunteers well organized. This race was my first one after a near fatal car accident and a surgery four months ago. My husband and daughter ran together. My daughter and good friend promised me to do the plunge while I was in ICU. Thank God we did it. Thanks for this memory.

Good race with poor support

My daughter ended up 1st in her age group in this race. I emailed the race people to ask if she won anything because we had to leave before awards and no one responded. I have a disappointed 8 year old. Also last year the fun runners got shirts and none this year
