Thank you all so much for putting together such a great event! This was my first race and it was perfect! See you next year!

A huge thank you from Portugal to all organizers, volunteers and participants. It was a great adventure getting to the race directly from Lisbon and to be able to participate in such a well organised and supported (what a fantastic group of volunteers) event. It was the first time I was cheered by other runners. I will always remember this one.
