2016 Event Reviews

I thought it was well run, and other than a small water snafu coming off the bridge, everything was smooth sailing! Great job! - C. Ridgaway Winnie, TX

This was my first time running it and I thought it was very well organized and the support on the course was stellar! - V. Mckinney Spring, TX

I wish you don't include the route with the rail road as it ate 7mins of our time waiting for the train to pass. – J. Thornton Pearland, TX

This was a wonderful race! Extremely well organized and well planned!! Thoroughly enjoyed it and beautiful weather! I drove over an hour and a hula to take part and it was totally worth it! - Al Torres League City, TX

LOVED the new route! Thanks for letting the walkers start at 6:30 and acknowledging us as marathon group. Fantastic volunteers and great coverage by the police force keeping us safe as we completed the race. Love the medals and the yard signs....oh, and the sticker as well. Good job! You ROCK!!! – B. Shaver Houston, TX

Loved the new route! And I PRd by 10 mins!!!! – J. Michelle Houston, TX

Didn't get to run this year due to an injury. I did come and cheer for friends and others. Glad to see this race grow! Liked the new start/finish location! I loved the new route and all the volunteers were fantastic. – D. Houston Baytown, TX

The medal is cool too. Is it a coincidence that this medal has the picture of last year's medal and the same with last year's medal has a picture of the 2014 medal? One more thing. Are there any plans for a full marathon in the future? The Jail Break is my first 5K and my first half so it only seems fitting that it be my first full too. –A. Dunson Baytown, TX

This was my very first 5k to run. I loved it!!! Y'all did a great job!!! Thank you so much for all you do Mary. YOU ROCK!!! – R. Callahan Baytown, TX

We were so excited to come back after such a wonderful race in 2013. The medals and shirts were great that year. While we loved the course this year and appreciated the volunteers and organization of the race, if I'm being honest, we were greatly disappointed by the color of the shirts (for the men) and the quality of the medal this year. We loved the navy blue shirt from the past race we did which was a much more traditional law enforcement color. Incredible goodie bag and post race refreshments though! Awesome way to end a hot and humid 13 miles! - Jennifer Collier Dallas, TX

Great 5K!! And thank you for doing a virtual Half this year!! – S. LeBlanc Houston, TX
