2016 Post-race Comments

Well done! Thanks so much to all those who helped make this possible! This year’s race, even with the parking/weather complications, was well run and put together. The communication of all the pending/possible changes was excellent, the post race beverage/food was amazing, and the glasses (great to see a different design from previous years!!), shirts, and medals were awesome.

Only suggestion, especially if the weather had been nice, would be to plan for more space for post race drinking. Even with a small turn out the area was overcrowded and tough to move around in.

Overall, much improved from previous years!

This was one of the best, most well-organized races I have ever run! They are communicative and do everything they can to ensure it will be a race well run and, most importantly, that runners are safe! I truly enjoyed running the Horsetooth Half Marathon and look forward to running it again someday.

You know how to put together one helluva race. I had a great time and run. I am glad that the weather cooperated. Everything went off without a hitch. Thanks to you, all of the race volunteers, The Holiday Twin, and all of the sponsors! See you next race!

I wanted to drop you a note to say thanks for making this years race a smooth, great one. The communication about plans with the weather was spot on and there was no question about what was happening. The weather was awesome. I’ve run it for the last many years, and I’ll be back again next year. Great work and thanks!

Thank you for a great race, and for working so hard to make it happen. I appreciate that you had a plan B instead of canceling, even though it wouldn’t have been ideal. I know you probably got a lot of flak for potentially changing the course, but it would have been way better than canceling, and I understand that postponing wasn’t really an option.

Thank you, also, for the training plan. My goal was to finish without injury, and I did. I didn’t have a time goal because I wasn’t sure what to expect with the hills, but my "it would be nice" time goal was 2:15, and I finished in 2:09:12 (according to my watch — I’m sure the official time is similar). So it was a great race and a gorgeous day.

I was lucky enough to run the Horsetooth Half last week; it was an amazing run!
