Just returned back home to Orlando, FL, and wanted to thank both of you for organizing a TERRIFIC race. It was definitely one of my best marathon experiences to date -- the plush busses, beautiful scenery and varied terrain along the race course, good course marking and traffic control, unique wood medals and awards, nice race bag goodies, great post-race food, friendly volunteers and spectators, awesome race shirt -- who could ask for more??? I will surely recommend it to others. SP, Florida
Thanks to all for a wonderful marathon. I had a great time. Best wishes all the future ones. HR, Wisconsin
Great race! Loved it!
“You did a great job with the race. It was awesome and beautiful and fun..... I was there with all those Ririe girls in the matching outfits and they all loved it too. (They are training for St. George) Anyway, the race was awesome. Thanks for all the hard work that went into it. I've been home for a while now and I'm craving more of the yummy finish line fruit.” JH, Rexburg
Thanks for a great race! I was raving about it to my fellow runners in Helena this evening, so hopefully a few more of us will make it next year.
Thanks to all of the volunteers. The dinner, breakfast, water stops, registration, etc. -- everyone was fantastic. They were great supporters. The folks with hoses were very much appreciated.
I ran the half marathon and it was a beautiful course, beginning with a run along the river and enjoying views of the Tetons about midway through the course. My husband traveled with me and we enjoyed a magnificent long weekend: viewing trout and an enormous moose at the Big Springs near Island Park; checking out Mesa Falls and the incredible restored Visitors Center at the Upper Falls; fishing the Warm River; standing in awe of Cave Falls; and hiking along the Bechler River. Next time we'll stay a week!
The huckleberry milkshakes were a real treat as well. We came back a couple of days later and bought two more to savor on the trip home.
I want to compliment you on a job well done. I had a wonderful time. The event was well organized. The volunteers and staff were very pleasant and helpful. The course was awesome and the weather was nothing short of perfect. Thank you for organizing the event. I’m sure the process is complex and tedious, but you did an outstanding job.
I'd like to take this time to thank you and everyone else involved with the Mesa Falls Marathon. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. I came from Kansas City to run in my second mararthon and was not disappointed. The people of your town and surrounding communities were among the most friendly I've encountered.
I've attached a word doc that I wrote to recap my race experience. Please use it as you wish. I look forward to one day returning to do this race again.
