"Blooms to Brews is definitely an event to check out and worth the drive, peaceful and pretty the miles fly by. I definitely don’t say that about every half marathon."

“I found the event to be organized and safety for the runners was definitely of concern with plenty of the medical and police on site (which is a plus!). It was a very festive event with all the cute girlies with dressed in flowers from head to toe, the flower walking around the event. These touches made the event very enjoyable. I would recommend this race in 2016, for I have already been encouraging to register for the fun, by posting on my Personal Facebook page”.

"Grab a few of your friends and sign up now for the 4-person marathon relay! Buses with trek your team to each relay connection point, so there’s no need to worry about providing your own transportation. Each runner will take a leg of 6.5 miles, which will give each of you the opportunity of experiencing different aspects of the course, and with so much beauty along the race, there’s plenty to share with great friends."

"All and all I loved the atmosphere of this race. It was like a summer BBQ in the spring. The fun, festivities, friends and everything offered. I am sure the weather helped! The course is scenic and beautiful, the shirts were a really pretty royal purple, and I loved the amount of things to see and do, and the food was great! And afterwards we went to the Tulip Festival down the street (the one we ran past) and had a great time! Tasty goodies and pretty flowers for my garden."

"After our beer and sandwich we ventured over to one of the race booths and got an amazing free massage by one of the local massage companies. I enjoyed this course, the race seemed very well-organized, the shirts were fantastic, and the after party was great."
