“Honestly one of the most fun race weekend environments I’ve ever experienced!”

 

“Pre-race facilities at the Hamilton Princess were excellent. I also liked the size of the event, not too big. Loved the post-race: plentiful food and drinks, and being able to bring my family to that.”

 

“You put the fun back into running. Was a well-organized race weekend, yet relaxing and fun.”

 

“The beauty of the course and the events in general were really nice and well thought out.”
