“I wanted to thank you for coordinating such a great race. Yesterday’s Holiday Halfathon was my first half marathon and it was an amazing experience. First, I was thrilled to see my name on my race bib and then to realize that my number (869) was my birth date was “over-the-top!” That was a nice touch. It certainly made me feel very special. Thank you again for an amazing experience. ”
