Great half today! I've been wanting to do this one for a bit and finally didn't miss the date. The shirts we saw in other races were a major draw to this one -very cool. Now that I've done it, I see there are a lot of other draws. It's a really good course, your water stop people were great and your police help was by far the most race friendly, runner friends (even cheering) people I have ever seen on a course. Nicely done! -CB 2012
I just wanted to say how much I thought Saturday's half marathon was a great success! It was my first time running the Salem half, my fourth half marathon of the year, and I got a PR!I have lived in Salem for 1.5 years now and run in a lot of local races as well as participating in many other races in the UK where I'm originally from.
The water stations were exactly as advertised distance wise, well managed by the staff and much appreciated by us runners; the course had fantastic volunteers throughout; the timing was accurate (and thank goodness we didn't have the ankle chips); receiving finishers medals as soon as we finished was perfect; and there was plenty of refreshments and entertainment afterwards. So, thank you, and well done! Again, thanks and congratulations on a well run race! Best Regards,
I wanted to let you and Steve know that the Wicked Half was fabulous!!!! This is the 2nd year I have run it and am always appreciative of the amount of work that goes into making this a successful event. The weather cooperated 100% which is always nice and I know a good time was had by all participants.
The volunteers and support were awesome. Brandi, hearing you in the cruiser providing words of encouragement brought a smile and chuckle to all - thank you for the support. Many of my friends ran this race for the first time and had a great race.
Thank you again - it was a tremendous success. -Shari Hewson Wicked Running Club
