It was great! May be have some agre groups with a turnout like that next time? just a suggestion! Can you tell me where a child could get there medal if they had to leave prior to them being awarded. Thank you!

My children had an awesome experience! Great turnout for the first event, Mr. Pappas did a great job promoting the race to the children! I think it will be even bigger next year! Next year i would organize the finish line a little better to avoid the confusion. It was a beautiful day for a fun event!
Perry Pappas October 22, 2011 at 02:50 PM
Thanks for the suggestion! We talked about both those issues. It was a nice surprise to have so many runners. Next year we should know what to expect.
Perry Pappas October 22, 2011 at 02:51 PM
Colin should have received a medal. If you let me know what school he is at, I can get it to him. If he is at the Galvin vs. Melrose meet on Monday at the high school, he can see me.
Allyson Jaena October 22, 2011 at 03:20 PM
Mr. Pappas ...thank you! A friend was kind enough to pick his up but we had our neighbor with us, Casey Kearney and she came in 13th. Colin or I will see you Monday to grab Casey's...thank you!!!!
