In the 2013 race, my friend Mary Hernandez and I ran our first half marathon here. We had an incredible run on this amazing course. Hills and Hollows will always be my first, my favorite, and my most recommended race. Congratulations on 10 years!     ~LIZ NONN

One of the "must participate" events for me each year. A well planned and run event. Great finisher medals, place awards, and terrific after race refreshments. Always neat to be back and renew old friendships. ~JAMIE DRISKILL

The course is both challenging and peaceful as it meanders through the Valmeyer hills. Oh, and there is beer at the finish line. ~ROBERT MACDERMOTT

People that support Hills and Hollows are fantastic. Everyone is so friendly with arms wide open! I also very much enjoying supporting the Valmeyer Volunteer Fire Department, especially the BackStoppers organization. ~LOU HECHT

As volunteers we have enjoyed all of the jobs we've been assigned. Encouraging the participants along the course as we hand out water to them is our favorite, though. This is a great event and really has put Valmeyer on the map! ~JOANN & MIKE FRICKE

I love the Hills and Hollows Half-Marathon!! It is a top notch race put on by a passionate group of folks. This race needs to be on everybody's race schedule for the end of September, whether you live in St. Louis, southern or central Illinois. This is a great sharpening race to prepare everyone for their fall marathon PR! ~AMY FREELAND-SMOCK
