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!

Fun and challenging race

The Rock & Comet 12K was a great event on a far less traveled section of the Silver Comet Trail. Hopefully more people will make the trip to Rockmart next year, it's definitely worth it. Great organization, enthusiastic leadership, nice shirt. Slightly long course and very long award ceremony only disruptions to a great morning.
