With the 14th Annual St. Charles Children’s Home a week from Monday, I thought I would share a nice letter I got last year from one of the runners:
“Your race was one of the best that I have attended this year. Very well organized and all of that wonderful food! Many times at a big race the food will run out before the last finishers cross the line. Not the case in your race, there was plenty for everyone. You did all of the right things to draw people back to your race next year. I intend to be there in 2010…”
The highlight of our post race food is a barbecue of hamburgers and hot dogs donated and cooked by all of the Applebee’s restaurants in this region. Tommie Mattie of the Portsmouth Applebees is chief chef, and I can attest to the fact that there is nothing like those hamburgers hot off the grille. Other food includes donuts, bagels, fruit, cookies, pizza and more.
I was excited to get a letter from a runner last year. If you have run our race and would like to share your thoughts about it, please let us know!
