What our Runners are Saying

"I'm thrilled to have The Night Run move to Tempe. It has a long tradition of a fun, well-organized, event for both top and recreational runners. A perfect fit for the spirit of Tempe!"  
Kolby Granville - Tempe City Councilman
"Once again this marks one of my favorite events of the year. Nicely done! My kids love playing in the park, family loved the atmosphere! Thanks for hosting/promoting such a beautiful night. The first race my 7 year old children had the opportunity to see Dad race and finish! Thank you for a beautiful evening. One we will definitely be back for next year."
  Timothy B. - participant
"My son ran the night run with me, he was visiting home from his new home, PA. He asked me why are we doing this run dad? I told him b/c it is fun. On the way to the airport I asked him if it was fun, he said yes... The only thing we have to leave this earth is our children, thank you for the chance to create a great memory with my adult son. As a sidebar although he is faster I did finish higher in my age group :) See you next year!"  Billy J. - participant
"This was one of the most convenient venues I've been to for a race. The course: that was fun--running on streets that are so familiar to me, lots of turns so it's never boring...I liked it. The Scottsdale mall is great."   Christy A. - participant
"Thank you for letting us participate in your event. Our massage therapists and physical therapy technicians told me that the event went really well."   Tracy Karas, P.T., D.P.T. Touch Heals Physical Therapy, LLC (Expo Vendor)

"Had a good time at your event. Parking was good with close access to the event and Old Town Scottsdale. Liked the course, especially all the turns through the local neighborhood. Was fun running with the crowd through the twists and turns. Good mix of vendors and the band put on a good show. Look forward to next year's race."   Richard T. - participant
"I was thrilled to see such great attendance! It truly was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to working with you on this great event again next year! "   Andrea Anderson, Facility Rentals Manager, Scottsdale Cultural Council

"Our 33 year history of educating pre-teens and teens through active programming is a perfect fit with Scottsdale Healthcare and The Night Run. We want to expand our programs and increase scholarships that will influence more youth to make long term positive health choices."    Dr. Frances Mills-Yerger, Founder, Workshops for Youth and Families
