Thank you

I just wanted to send this note to thank  and congratulate you on the great job that you did on Sunday with the half and full marathons!  

I have run this event in the past and was a little leery of signing up again this year.   I ran the course when it was measured incorrectly (missed a PB), had friends that were stopped by trains and had issues with parking at the event.  You certainly got it right this year!  The parking and bussing was uneventful, the course was lovely and clear and I’ve never been in and out of the bag check as fast as I was on Sunday.  I’m sure you didn’t control the weather, but I’ll give you credit for that too!

 

Well done.  Thank you.

Great Job

Hello Gord and Esther.

Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for the great job you did on Sunday with the Road 2 Hope. It was the first time I've done this race and felt it was very well organized, with upbeat volunteers, a wonderful course, a nice shirt and beautiful medal (nice bling). I also appreciated the fact that you ordered such a lovely, sunny day for race day. The hot soup at the end was a nice touch as well.
Thanks again for all your hard work on our behalf and it was fun to be out running on such a glorious fall day.
run, run, puff,puff.

Update on Fallen Runner

There was a man running the marathon who collapsed near the finish line. Because of the help of runners and the immediate and skilled response of our medic team, they were able to revive him and he is now talking, eating and recovering. The family is extremely grateful for the amazing, quick, and helpful response of everyone! Thank you HMR2H medical team for your expertise and to fellow runners who stopped to help. We continue to pray for his quick and complete recovery!
