What our runners are saying…..

“Everything, from the course, to the easy packet pick up, host hotel was great and loved that you could walk everywhere. All around, one of my top 10 halfs (and I have done 96)”

“I liked the organization and the atmosphere. Running on the river was beautiful.”

“The weather was perfect, the results were fast, the announcer at the end of the 5K was great as well as the snacks.”

“I can sign myself and my family up for any race and know that they will be participating in one of the most well put together runs of the year”

“I REALLY loved the course from Hagadorn to the finish line. It was really cool having spectators, especially along the river trail from MSU to Mt. Hope”

“Really feel like I got my money’s worth – shirts were great, well organized, LOVED the timed mile markers, and everyone was really nice”

“Pace leaders and good attitudes. Lots of cheering sections.”

“The atmosphere. It was amazing! Great course, great spectators! I also loved the aid station at Potter Park Zoo- The oranges and candy were great!

“I loved the changing scenery. You have it all covered, town running, nice parks and running by the river!”

“Great race, well organized, great finish line. I enjoyed the new course for the 1/2 marathon”

“It’s local, with lots of great local support. Its always easy for loved ones to access the course to offer encouragement along the way. I trust that it will always be well-organized and well-run. I don’t worry about there being snafus. Its getting bigger each year. The course is always well marked. CCRR has GREAT volunteers!!!! THANK YOU to everyone who worked so hard to make this such a fun event in which to participate! Also, THANK YOU for differentiating the distances on the shirts this year. Great medals, too….I’ve noticed how nicely they have improved since my first CCRR in 2008″

“The 10 min/mile pace team for the half marathon was super. I also liked the course and trivia signs. Community support was very good”

“Atmosphere. Even running the full marathon there was a lot of excitement to keep you pumped”
