Verdugo Mountains 10K

Glendale Memorial Hospital


"Thank you soo much for a great event. Well run as always. Did far better than I though I would and will be back next year. Take care, and thank you for all your hard work. Can you also tell Charlie that he did a great job today, but his singing is worse than mine, LOL

"Your race was excellent! There was a buzz around the finish line that I have not seen in quite a while. A lot of long time local runners were making immediate comparisons to the Mt Wilson Trail Race and Baldy Run to the Top, which are very long time and established cult races, as you surely know... so I am thinking that you have created an instant classic with a modern feel to it! "

This was a fantastic race!!!!. . . I have to say you were all so organized and so enthusiastic. . . I highly recommend this race to anyone looking for a local trail race.  Forget about going to Big Bear and Malibu when there’s a challenging race right here in our own backyard!

AND that pancake breakfast was RIDICULOUSLY good!  I didn’t think much about it until I realized it was PUMPKIN pancakes AND SAUSAGE !!!!!. . . Gourmet bfast!!! So delish and served with such smiles from the Kiwanis Club.

Truly, kudos to you all. . . Really wonderful job, Glendale.  You make the city shine!!!

Thank you for a great Verdugo 10K event. It is a runner’s run from start to finish:

well organized
great, enthusiastic volunteers
ample porta potties at the start
on-time start
mile markers
challenging course
concern for safety
water & support along the course
water & food right on the finish line
pancake breakfast
nice shirt
entertaining MC at awards program

Most of all, it is a community event to celebrate our treasured Vergugo Mountains, a wilderness area, a place for escape and exercise inside our city.

Thank you City of Glendale and Parks Department.

With appreciation,

Did the run this morning and had a great time.  What a kick-butt event – I signed up for the run and ended up doing the speed hike :o)  And those were the biggest, best pancakes I’ve ever had!!

The race was outstanding!  We had Team Honda there in strong form but will market it heavily to our 113 member strong club for next year & greatly increase our attendance.
Great to see our local business owner Tim Vadney there w/Race Ready!  He's a great guy & wonderful business.

Just wanted to thank and congratulate you on a fantastic day.  The Verdugo Mountains 10k was hands down one of the best organized and well run race events I've been to.  I'd also like to give a hearty bravo to your volunteers: simply some of the most polite and well trained race staff I've encountered.  

Thank you again,

David Trachtenberg
