"Thanks for managing a great race - I have run the course three years in a row now and this was the best of all of them - everything went very smoothly!”
“It was a beautiful course, the volunteers were plentiful and friendly, plenty of bathrooms, a nice size of a race and a wonderful day. Plus, you guys did give out some great gear and goodies!!! Thanks for all of your team's hard work. It was greatly appreciated. “
“I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for allowing me to help out and volunteer at the race this year. I must say that I was very impressed with how friendly, welcoming, and helpful every one was who were part of your crew. I also want to complement you on just how well overall the race was run. I’ve run many, many races over the years, including the Boston Marathon this year. So I’ve seen my fair share of good and badly run races. This is no doubt one of the better run races, and I complement you for pulling off what is not an easy task. We met briefly after the race. . . . I'm the guy that has now run all 10. Looking forward to #11.”
“I cannot say enough what an AWESOME job your staff did today! My sister and her 2 co-workers are going to hang pictures up at Littleton Equine Medical Center where they work and they plan to make Boulder Marathon a TEAM race next year! They said it was one of the best marathons they have ever done. They are SO jazzed you should get testimonials from them! Today you blew them all away. You put on one hell of a 1st class event. I host a 5k each year and know how much it stresses me out. I can’t imagine a marathon!”
“I have been to many races in the last year that had inadequate porta potties both at the start and on the course. I was very impressed with your potty arrangements. Also really nice volunteers. Thank you for a great race even though I used the race for a 20 mile training run with a 6 mile walk as I am training for the Marine Corps Marathon next month.”
“Congratulations on putting together a great event! Although this is my first Boulder Marathon, I have run in many 10k's, a handful of half marathons, and one marathon – and this is one I would rank at or near the top. From the website, to the giveaways, to the volunteers, and the after race activities...excellent job. I hope to do this one again next year. Thanks so much!”
“What an amazing weekend…congrats to your staff, for what seemed to me an incredibly successful race and race day! You all certainly outdid yourself and I look forward to many more Boulder Marathon events.”
“Fantastic job on the race directing front. Well done, I enjoyed it!”
“Thanks for a great race experience yesterday. The Boulder Marathon/Half is always one of the best organized events.”
“This past weekend was one of the most beautiful 1/2's I've ever done. Thanks for a great job and a well-organized race!”
“This was my first half marathon. I loved it! I thought the organization was great, there was a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, and it was a beautiful course. I appreciated all the volunteers with the water and Gatorade and the encouragement along the way. Congratulations on putting on such a fine event. I hope to keep coming back.”
“My sister and I came up from Denver and we had a great time. It was my first organized 1/2 marathon and the course was great for me. The people were great and the support was right there when I needed a drink. I am already planning on doing some more 1/2's throughout the season thanks to the positive experience from the Boulder Marathon. Thanks for the hard work and I plan on coming back again next year where I'll shoot for 1h30!”
“I thought the race was very well run. It started on time and the volunteers did their part. It was a really fun event.”
