Testimonials & Reviews
Congratulations on a job well done. I thoroughly enjoyed everything your race had to offer. I have always run big city marathons and half-marathons and didn't realize what I was missing in a smaller race. Lets see. . . no waiting at packet pick-up, lots of convenient parking space, 9:00 start, no port-o-john lines, no shoving and pushing at the start, lots of fluids for everyone, beautiful rolling countryside, no traffic on the course, no screaming and yelling, nice shirts, top-of-the-line medals, apple pie for awards, and lots of sunshine!! I couldn't think of a thing that I would
change. Thanks again for a wonderful experience and for all the work that went in to making in happen.
I would like to compliment you on a wonderful day. This was my first half marathon, although I have done many 5k and 10k runs as well as several bike races. This event was well managed, the course was well marked, and the volunteers were great cheerleaders and very helpful. I REALLY appreciated the same day number pickup as I drove 105 miles to attend the event, and a hotel room was not in the budget this year. If my legs are still in shape, I will definitely do this one again next year.
Perfect race day! Thank you Lowell! This was my 4th Gettysburg event. Thanks for bringing distance (Half Marathon) running to Gettysburg!
Mr. Ladd...Just to give you Kudos — it was a great race...very well organized!!! The volunteers and aid stations were great...mile markers matched my Garmin perfectly — great weather--beautiful course. You did an amazing job!!! I've run Boston, New York, Disney...thought this was excellent for only second race!!! Will definitely try to run the full in April. Thank you
I would wholeheartedly recommend the Gettysburg Blue Gray Half Marathon! The race is extremely well organized. The course is beautiful featuring gorgeous fall foliage, safe roads and good spectator support. The course has a few rolling hills but very manageable and a good opportunity for a PR. The amenities were excellent and prizes outstanding! It's well worth the hard work of 13.1 miles if you win one of the terrific home baked apple pies as a prize! I will definitely run it again!
