Beautifully set up, fun atmosphere, amazing RD's...you can't go wrong!! sign up and amaze yourself ❀️❀️ ~ Nandini
3rd year doing this race. It's a laid back atmosphere, great volunteers, great snacks, nice course. You can camp out and rest as needed. ~ Yuvanka
That was a fantastic. This was my first attempt at 100 and I had a great time doing it in the 24. Your volunteers were amazing, the food great (especially the bean quesadillas) and the decorations inspiring, especially for a Xmas nut like me. I think it is highly likely I will come back next year and try for more than 100 and if my schedule doesn't permit running I will definitely visit and volunteer. Well done.‬ ~ Jim
What a fantastic event! The volunteers and participants were pretty amazing. An unforgettable experience of a lifetime! I just can't say enough about what a positive experience this was!!! I was originally going to do a 50k and be done but the experience was so positive that I continued on to do the 51.5796 miles. Thank you! ~ Debbie
