TESTIMONIALS

WHAT RUNNERS ARE SAYING

Our races are all about the participants, runners, and volunteers, and the experience they have with our race. After every race, we do a feedback survey to help us understand how we did, how we can improve our future races, and hear what the runners and volunteers thought about their experience. We got a ton of responses and great feedback, overall it is clear that people had a great experience.

But don't take our word for it. Read a few of the testimonials below directly from past participants.

Huge thank you to everyone who participated, this race would not be possible without you, Be The Light 5K and A Light of Hope ♥'s you!

Be The Light 5k is more than a night race, it's a party! All the runners and walkers all lit up with the fun accessories provided, add to that colorful tunnels at the finish, upbeat music, cheering crowds and a beautiful medal at the end makes for one of the most anticipated events in Santa Clarita all while supporting a great cause.

This was my first time volunteering and I found the experience fun and easy. I really like how organized everything was and how happy people felt about giving time to put this event on. I also enjoyed how grateful people are to the volunteers. I’m definitely happy to help again. I’ve enjoyed being a runner but just as happy giving my time to help set up and make the race experience for other people awesome.
