|Absolutely everything about the race is wonderful. The volunteers are concerned about each of us and pamper us along the way. The supplies at all of the aid stations were over the top. The flagging was absolutely perfect!!! I never had a moment of confusion, which for me is saying much. The trails were absolutely stunning. Miles and miles of beautiful bouquets of flowers. I was in heaven and could not get the stupid smile off of my face. You and all of the volunteers love this place and it shows with all of the care that is given. This race is most certainly my all time favourite and I am looking forward to coming back next year with more friends to show off why I love this race so much.|
