I did not know what to expect, organizing a 5K race for our high school on Thanksgiving Day. From the very beginning of the process to the end, FS Series was there at every meeting, answering every question and came to the table with enthusiasm and a “can do” attitude for the event. (The FS Series staff’s) professionalism, knowledge of how to organize the race along with the contacts in the community made the event a success. No question was too trivial and their response back to our committee was quick. On the day of the race, from the set-up, to the organization of the volunteers, to the very last detail, FS Series took command and insured that everything was done. We were extremely pleased with the whole experience and event.
I’m a fan of that Battle of Buckhorn race. The belt buckle for the male and female winners is a great idea, and I can only hope that as this race gains in popularity so will the smack talk and legend that surrounds the buckle. Where else in North Carolina can you run by a pasture with massive Texas Longhorn grazing and lounging in the shade? The venue is has a beautiful view of the lake and is a great place to hang out if you just want to enjoy the show. What a wonderful race put on by a top notch team from Finish Strong – the FS Series rocks!
