"This was my first trail race and I loved it!  I will definitely be back next year!  I loved the size of the race and the sense of community/excitement!  I thought the race was very well organized - especially considering the last minute changes due to rain.  The course was very well marked and volunteers were along the course to guide us.  The post-race breakfast items were a nice treat! The toboggan hat was a nice surprise too!  I have no suggestions to make it better. Great job - thanks for all your hard work!!!"

"This was my 2nd Chestnut Ridge trail race and like last year it was awesome! beautiful setting, wonderful people, good cause.  Thank you for the hard work in putting this together! It is such a delight to participate, I wish it happened every season!  I encouraged several of my running buds to attend, and many remarked it was their favorite trail race yet.  Congratulations on hosting one of the best local races...."
