"This was truly a first class event from registration through the runner reunite area. Every detail was well thought out and executed perfectly! The race directors listened to the runners and gave them a race to remember! Also, the town of Naperville welcomed and supported this race with open arms! This was my 10th marathon and was definitely one of the best! Well done race directors, volunteers, spectators, and runners! Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!"
