Runners & Volunteers Speak OUT





Thanks for putting on another great run and how your orders for the weather have been being filled is beyond belief!

Thanks for putting on the best-run ultra I've ever been part of. It was a fabulous event and you guys deserve tremendous credit for how well it came off.

Kudos to Carola Laue and Ken Gregorich, Skyline 50K Race Directors, for making the 22nd Annual Skyline 50K an outstanding success. The new course with more ridgeline and more single track is a definite two thumbs up! Makes the first half, especially, a lot more fun. Absolutely great aid stations and volunteers. A special thanks to the volunteers at the Honkers Bay 28 mile aid station, who must have read my mind. I was just saying to a guy I was running with that I desperately needed a coke and suddenly there was a kind volunteer pouring ice cubes into a cup of coke and there was watermelon too, my favorite energy booster! Safety Patrol course monitors were strategically placed throughout the course to keep runners on track, for which I am very grateful since if there is a wrong turn to be made, I will surely make it when running alone. The Safety Patrol monitors were wearing bright green shirts so they often blended right in with the forest. Love the sleeveless Coolmax Finishers Shirt! Would like to see more sleeveless shirts since T-shirt sleeves are always way too big (whether unisex or men’s) for a 5’ tall person hanging down irritatingly over the elbow. But the sleeveless “muscle shirts” are actually run wearable for us little people! Thanks for a great run. Let’s keep the new course!

Thank you for putting on such a good race on Sunday - lot's of fun and I will definitely be back (with even more friends).

Thanks for putting on such a great race. I had so fun on such a beautiful course with more volunteers than runners (or so it seemed). I tried to say "thanks" to every volunteer, especially the ones stationed alone telling us which way to go, but I'm sure I missed some. I hope others said something to the ones I missed. I Love my Sporthill AGW shirt.

Overall it was a good course, a few brutal climbs but mostly flat to pretty gradual slopes. It actually felt like there were more downhills than uphills, which is a strange new feeling for me. The volunteers were great and they were stationed at every trail junction so I didn't get lost, and the fluids were all cold. And the weather was perfect-- cool and humid, even ran through some thick fog on top of the ridge. Great run, great volunteers-- I will be back next year as long as it's on Sunday.

I really enjoyed your endurance run again this year. Everything was great, and the course changes were very good/much improved over the previous year.

Great event with great support, so I'll be back next year

Congratulations on staging a successful AND IMPROVED event. Everyone seemed to appreciate the course changes.

I just received my copy of Ultrarunning. You mentioned me in your article on Skyline, and you sent my picture in for publishing. That was a first and made me feel good. Thank you and also for putting on such an excellent race.
