COACH REVIEWS from the 34th Invitational (9/17/16):

The meet was great and all the volunteers were tremendous. It's evident you put a lot of time into the preparation and it paid off.

Paul Baur, Pine Crest School

Yes I would recommend. Thanks so much for a great day .....

Keelin Hayden, Cardinal Newman High School

You all did a wonderful job, God willing we will be back next year

Eddie Cerdeiras, Immaculata LaSalle HS

Great meet as usual! Of course we'd recommend. My kids had a blast. Loved the new tent city.

Eric Pino, Columbus

It was a great meet again and I would recommend it to other coaches. We will certainly be there again next year. The shuttles to mile markers was greatly appreciated, as were the clocks for runners to see. Thank you again for the breakfast, too!

Lauren Guagno, Olympic Heights

Amazing event. Kids loved hanging around. I absolutely would recommend this race.

John O'Connell, Saint Andrews

The past two years my team has loved competing at your race. I would definitely recommend the race to others. Please make sure to thank your volunteers. They were outstanding!

A.J. Mayernik, Okeechobee

Yes (we would recommend to a fellow coach)!

Krystle Maycock, Pembroke Pines Charter Schools

I would highly recommend this, the traffic flow was the best ever, the setup and the running were great. I know I tried to thank each of your volunteers that I came into contact with as well as you personally..... Thanks again for hosting this.

Coach Mitchell, The King's Academy

I just wanted to thank you for a pleasurable race experience. This was our first time attending this meet, and I thought it was organized and managed very well. The girls enjoyed the meet very much, and we intend to attend next year.

Allison Ibarra, Ronald W. Reagan/Doral Senior High School

Great meet. Thanks for breakfast :) No recommendation just keep up the great work!

Meisha Carey, Dwyer

The meet was an outstanding event!

Craig Adams, A.W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts

This is our second year attending your wonderful race, and we cannot wait to return next year. Our athletes look forward to attending the meet just as much as we do, even with a long drive early in the morning! We would absolutely recommend next year's meet to a fellow coach. Everything about the race is incredibly professional & the atmosphere is one of the best for competitive running that I've been apart of. I'm originally from St. Louis, MO and Fleet Feet hosts this back-to-school cross country kick-off with over 100 local schools attending, and this races makes me think of home every time. I think the race is incredibly successful! I really appreciate how professional all of your volunteers are, and I hope to continue returning year after year.

Lauren Redondo, Riviera Preparatory Schools

Thank you for a great meet! As always, it was well organized and enjoyable for runners, coaches and parents. I would definitely recommend next year's meet to a fellow coach.

Justin Boruch, Forest Hill Community High School

Everything was great.
