Testimonials From 2015 Fall River Half Marathon

Great race. Loved it. Your team was fantastic out o nthe course.

Loved it. See you next year.

I just wanted to comment on how well this race was run for such a small race. The police staff was AMAZING and as a runner I felt special and supported by the squads and volunteers. A huge plus for starting on time and for the XS t-shirt sizes (NEVER happens). Although it was my worst half time and have not ran in a while because of injuries this race was beyond enjoyable and I would recommended it to people in the future!!

Thank you very much for this morning's run. It was great, I truly enjoyed it. The course is nice, you were well-organized, and the Fall River Police were amazing. You deserve a bigger response, so let me know how I can help. I look forward to next year.

Testimonials From 2013 Fall River Half Marathon

The medal was cool and unique.

Thank you so much for the fantastic race yesterday. I had a wonderful time, the course was beautiful and the race was run so smoothly.

Had a great time at the race. It was well run and organized. Looking forward to next year and any other that you may have planned.

Good challenging course for yesterday's race in Fall River. I hope my schedule permits me to run the half at Colt State Park.

You're the best! Great race!

I'm writing to compliment you folks for the thoughtful and enthusiastic organization of the Fall River Half Marathon. It started with the 'have fun' comments everyone got when receiving our bibs. I liked the course with its the 3 out and backs, which gave you a chance to view the field of runners and to cheer fellow runner friends. Most notably the student athletes at the water stations were great! They were very positive towards us runners. The post race gathering at the tavern was also a lot of fun. The finishers' metals and shirts are of good quality and unique. Thanks, well done!

I appreciate what people like you are doing for the sport and for promoting good health!


Testimonials From 2012 Fall River Half Marathon

Thank you for a nice little race.

Great race. I will bring some more runners from the RI area next year.

The volunteers in Fall River were great and I appreciated the lack of auto traffic! I loved having the cross country teams at the water stations -- they were great kids offering lots of encouragement and I thought that was really nice. I also appreciated all of the police officers you had. Everybody who was working on the race who I encountered was wonderful, and you can't beat that. :) Take care and again thank you very much. You folks did a great job!
See you at another race!

Thank you very much! My son enjoyed racing today. Hopefully, this is the start of a great sport for him. He definitely wants to race again next year.

Overall nice start for your race. Good job. Had a good time.

the course was great. A bit more challenging than a "flat and fast" course especially at the end on Airport Road.
I will definitely be back next year and bringing friends!

Thanks, and my wife and I will see you at the Wolf Hollow next month,

I enjoyed the half marathon race yesterday. Very scenic course, generous amounts of water stops and enthusiastic volunteers from local track teams! Overall a great little race. Hope this race will be around for many years, and continue to grow. The race raised money for a great cause. Local and close to home for me, and plenty of parking with easy in and out. Look forward to running it next year.

I just wanted to reach out to thank you for the great race yesterday. It didn't seem like it was the first year it had been done - everything was very well-organized, and all of the organizers/volunteers were clearly committed to the event. The tech shirts were great, as was the food at the end and the free beer at the bar next door. And I love my pint glass! Also thanks for posting the results and the race and online so quickly. I didn't even notice a delay - you were faster with it than some of the bigger races I've run in the past. Thanks again for everything, and looking forward to running it again next year!
