Rock & Comet 5k

I enjoyed the 5k run and the fast downhill finish. The course is scenic and comfortable on the smooth surface. The many vendors are always great and setup nicely in the shade of the park. Elite Timing does a great job with times and announcements and the photography provided is always fantastic. Awards are outstanding and unique. Many loyal volunteers and runners .... just great people makes for great running experience. A memorable race !! Good post race nutrition too.

Great Race

My granddaughter and I ran the 12K and both of us enjoyed the 12K course. The shirts are beautiful. Awards are nice-looking, unique & we plan to frame the posters. The awards ceremony moved right along. We plan to run this Series. Thanks for a beautiful & fun day. Jackie & Allyson.

Rock & Comet 12K

Beautiful course, great pictures, very responsive organizers both pre- and post-race (to emails, etc.). Very organized race. A few suggestions for a perfect experience: Start the 5K 15 minutes later than the 12K, use the microphone for the awards, use the built-in raffle tickets from the bibs for the door prizes- fair, quick, easy- indicate on the container that you must stay through the 12K awards to be eligible to win. There were no volunteers at either turnaround (5K or 12K).

Fantastic Race

The Rock & Comet 12k was fantastic. The venue and course are absolutely top-shelf, the organization and support were even better. Year 1 was so delightful I can't wait for Year 2. Great Job GAA!
