This was my first year running this race. Orignally from Fort Wayne, so it was great to be back. Route was great, run through Lindenwood was fun and challenging. Only complaint was too many people up front that did not belong there bottling up the start for the more serious runner costing us time. Will be back next year

This was my first year and will definitely make it a Thanksgiving tradition. The route was nice, I had a great time! My only "complaint" about this event is that I could not find any information on where/when to pick up my race packet and got no response from the administrator when I emailed.

Great event! Well managed, no hassle venue with 2,000 participants. Fast course in the prettiest cemetery ever. Hilly and interesting with a happy family and friends atmosphere. Run or walk at any pace. Train to win or push the stroller. Everyone gets home by 10am to enjoy Thanksgiving. Perfect! See you next year.
