2014 Icarus Florida UltraFest - Testimonials
"I came to the Icarus Florida Ultrafest race from Canada to crew a friend, and left with a whole new family. I was introduced to multi-day (non-stage) racing here, and was blown away by not only the grandeur of the event, the athletes themselves, but also the other crews and volunteers. I had such a great time volunteering, whether it be making oatmeal and coffee at 3:30 AM (the busy hour), doing dishes (for real!), eating Alexander's pancakes at midnight (perk!), and watching the joy on the runners' faces when Claire busted out the blender to make smoothies (and use up the bananas!) in the heat of the day and also for Carey's soups in the evening. In what other race do runners drop by after they are finished with pizzas for everyone (this happened 3 times over the 6 days!), because they had such a good time?! Don't get me wrong, we worked HARD, but we also had so many laughs that I am strongly considering flying out for the January events, either to volunteer again or participate. And Dusty, I'm still laughing out loud over your conversations with Michele by the tent!! Thanks Claire and Andrei for letting me part of your event!" - Una Beaudry
