“Thanks for a good race: you should really advertise this as the most scenic race in Georgia……..because it really is.”

–Bucky W.  – 2009 Participant

“Many thanks to you and all involved with the Soque River Ramble, including, of course, the generous sponsors for a job well done! There were four of us from Toccoa who ran and we all enjoyed the race. Everyone was helpful, the course was well marked with volunteers and signs, the awards were great and the post race food was wonderful! We do plan to be back next year and hopefully bring even more runners with us. Maybe we can put in a special order for no rain the night before?  :-)) Once again thanks for a job well done!”

–Donna P.  – 2009 Participant

–Amanda F. – 2008 Participant

“. . . The race was spectacular.  You guys have really worked hard.  It is probably the best race I have ever been involved with.  You can’t beat the scenery.”

–Brent B. – 2008 Participant

“It was was a great event!  Well organized and how did you orchestrate such a beautiful day??!!!
This was my very first event–my goal was just to finish it…and i brought home a mug!!  So glad I was a walker so I could enjoy the scenery.  We will return next year and the next….”

–Allison B. – 2008 Participant

“The 2007 and 2008 events were very enjoyable to me.  Last year stimulated me to get serious about my activity level and I entered my first event since Apirl 1978 with a goal to finish less than 50 minutes and I made it at 49 plus minutes.  As an extra bonus I placed third in my age group (what a surprise).  This year I had a goal of 45 minutes and made it in 39 plus minutes but the competition was stronger this year and I finished 6th for my age group.  I have not participated in any other events because this one seems unique and special to me.  Thanks for your work in making this happen.”
