Another AWESOME race experience!

On behalf of the Half Twisted Runners I want to thank Vacation Races for another AWESOME race experience. Time and time again you deliver a high quality and well organized event. Although the cousre change made it a bit more challenging, the views wre much better than last years race. You all should be very proud of this event and I look forward to coming back next year......You guys ROCK!!!!

Y'all weren't lying when you said "challenging course" was almost my first DNF! Support from fellow runners and volunteers saw me to the finish though. Keep doing what you guys do, these races will always be a favorite of mine.

Great, challenging course!

Terrific from start to finish - fun expo, nice to see no litter along the course, and Odie the goat was an awesome mascot. Hopefully only my first of many Vacation Races. Thanks to everyone who made this race happen.
