Runners: Thank you for your overwhelming response to our Run the Farm Survey. Of the 650+ people who responded, 80% (over 500) responded they would either “Definitely” or “Likely” be there. Another hundred were rated their participation “Possibly.” Over half of the respondents indicated that someone in their family would like to participate in a kids race the same day. So we are thinking it’s a go!
We received a lot of questions in the open ended part of the survey. Here are a selection of these comments and our responses to them regarding the planned “Run the Farm” 5 mile trail race and kids 1 mile race at Muscoot Farm on October 24, 2010.
A number of comments were similar so we condensed them or combined them over one response. If you have any other questions, let us know. Your ideas and feedback have already given us great ideas and encouragement.
