2017

This was my first full marathon. It was the most beautiful race I've participated in and such a terrific experience! I thought everything was well organized, the course was great (never had to get on a road even), and everyone was so friendly and helpful. I plan to make this an annual event! P.S. The tunnel rocked!      -Kim

 

 

 

 

Good morning!
Thank you for an incredible race! After running your half-marathon last year, my brother and sister encouraged me to run it this year, and it was spectacular! All of your volunteers and race coordinators should be commended for a job well done.

I loved all of the mile markers. Thank you!

This was a beautiful course, and you did a great job of keeping us informed from registration through the race finish. I’d highly recommend this race.

 

Thank you - Kim

 

 

This was marathon #13 for me and my favorite that I've finished.  You can't overstate how amazing it is to run through a 2 mile tunnel and exit it to such breathtaking scenery.  However, I can't believe that I'm going to say this but going downhill the whole time was too much for me.  Started off very fast but just couldn't keep up the pace with the extra pounding on my legs.

Thanks for putting on such a good race!

The Jack & Jill Half Marathon was the most incredible Half I have run to date! While I have run some pretty incredible courses (i.e., Napa, Santa Barbara, Zion), the Jack & Jill course exceeded expectations. Running through Iron Horse State Park was such a treat with its gorgeous trees, stunning scenery and incredible bridges. Additionally, the small "boutique" size of the race made it so enjoyable and peaceful. The mostly downhill and flat course also made for a great race time for me... and a new PR! I would love to do this race again and would highly recommend it to others.

 

Thanks, Jill

This has been the most beautiful race  by far this running season ( 5/6 since Seattle marathon 2016). Having to use a headlamp through the 2.3 mile Tunnel made it the most interesting and fun race I've run yet.  Highly recommended marathon!  -Lisa C

I traveled from St. Louis to run this race. Scenery was unbelievable. Course was flat, fast, and well marked. There was a perfect amount of water stations. Just all around a great race. Thinking I may have to return in the future for the full marathon. - Jennifer H
