Lots of energy and support from the volunteers, the police and all the runners. So proud of the wonderful course laid out to showcase the beauty of Owensboro. Yes, I would run this race next year and years to come. What a positive impact this race made for the City of Owensboro and all the runners who take to the streets, including myself. Well done!!

The race was so well done!!! Lots of great energy, positive support, plenty of water stations!!! I cannot say ENOUGH what a SPECTACULAR job y’all did planning and putting on this race!! I’d love to look back in 20 years and say that I’ve run this race every year for the last 20 years, including the first time it was ever done!!! WONDERFUL community event!!!

Thanks! I was talking to my friend after we left the race. We have absolutely nothing but awesome things to say about your first half marathon. Everything was so well thought out and planned. We both can’t wait for next year. Please tell everyone that helped organize it, that we were very impressed.

I’m already planning on coming back next year. This race was very well done. We had a lot of fun. The course was beautiful (and flat!!!!). The volunteers were amazing and the swag was great. This race made it to my top 5 list. And I’ve run A LOT of races.
