Just a few comments regarding your
Dick Blick Railroad Run this past weekend.
I am a veteran of almost 600 road races competing over my 70+ years and have race directed I don't know how many but its a lot. I don't know if that gives me creditability or not but I hope so.
You and the Galesburg Road Runners are to be congratulated on a very well organized race that was held under very difficult conditions this past weekend. I felt your course control was excellent, I do not believe I have ever seen 3 water stops in a 5K race but they were so welcome by everyone not to mention so very necessary in that kind of heat and humidity. The safety of the competitors is a major concern to every running club but I thought you had covered every base including medical personnel being present.
My wife and I thought the hot dogs and your selection of food was excellent for a summer evening race. In short, you did everything right and you and all your volunteers are to be congratulated for a job well done.
