Springfest brings so many neighbors and Oh, my, we're neighbors! Living together! Yesterday I met over 30 people I knew from the Palmer Ranch, and saw many more I know only by sight from biking through all the neighborhoods, grocery shopping, that I have seen at Lowes or walking the trail. I think the community garden is adding to that vision and I am so glad to be a part of it, it’s that small town feeling. Marcy F.
I participated in the 2013 race on Saturday…. It was a fantastic event, great turnout, and so sorry about the rainy cold weather in the am. We will be there next year!! Jennifer S.

The organization was excellent. The parking was convenient and packet pick-up a breeze. The tech t-shirt design was way better than past years... This could very well be the comeback race of the year! Nice job, Felicia!
The course is a nice trek through Palmer Ranch. I did the 5K and it was marked right on 3.1 miles. This race really needs to be put back in the racing series....
The awards were nice trophies for the overall winners. They had new and improved medals for the individusl age group winners, with different colored ribbons indicating 1st thru 6th.
The post race party was excellent. They had Chef John's hot dogs, Carrabba's pasta salad, M & M cookies, bagels and beer....hundreds of dollars of raffles to keep us entertained while we waited for the awards and during the awards ceremony. I give the Springfest 12K & 5K a 9.95 out of 10.
