“I just wanted to get a quick note to say thank you and your team for putting on an incredible event. I have NEVER been to such a well-supported race ever. I felt like I was entering a Formula 1 race team pit stop at Aid station #1. Actually I was treated like I was royalty and that really left a lasting impression. I sincerely appreciate all of the effort put in and will return next year.”
