"Loved the course, the race shirt, the finish area next to the beautiful falls, and the age group awards. It was so fun to be out with such a big, wonderful, diverse
group of athletes - everyone enjoying the day while pursuing their fitness goals. Perfect!"

2024 Get in Gear Participant

"I loved the half marathon course; running from the cathedral to the falls was very scenic! The
net downhill was a nice gift. Loved that TCM promotes family youth running with 18 and under running free. This positive feature makes me want to run TCM races."
