Race Report: 2008 Living History Farms XC Part - Letters & Comments
There's nothing that you could say or do to change my mind... it was a great time!
I just wanted to say thanks for all those that made the race possible. This was my first time and it was a blast. The race was very well run especially considering the numbers. You will definitely see me there next year. I also ran with a helmet camera and tried to catch how crazy this race actually was. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gke2C22oGF4
I just wanted to thank you and all of your volunteers for a wonderfully entertaining race on Saturday. As a cross country coach, I know how much organization goes into a meet with 150 or 200 runners, so I know you had your hands full with 7500! I'm sure there were problems that could have been ironed out, but the excitement of being there and taking part in such a great event makes up for any mistakes!
AMAZING!!! My hats off to everybody who was envolved with putting this on! Can
In a word: AMAZING. The most fun I have ever had running in my entire
life. Loved the cold weather, high water, and muddy mess. The people
make this fantastic - from the volunteers to the participants. I am a
coach and race director so I know and understand the work that goes into
pulling an event like this off - congrats on a fantastic job and thank
you for your hard work. I will make it a point to be back year after
year, no matter where my life takes me - this is a can't miss. I would
love to see some sort of on-line photo book created where participants
and spectators can post photos.
I just want to say how much fun I had running this race. I was a first timer and
Explanation will be coming! I need a rest.
