2019 Hampton KOS Race Comments
“I just wanted to send a quick note to say how much fun my kids had this morning and throughout the training sessions over the last several weeks. They have not stopped talking about their races today. My 5 year old told me tonight that she was tired after biking but realized how strong she was while she was running, and my 6 year old is asking about the next race he can enter”.
“I LOVE the KOS events…so many happy kids”!
“The smiles say it all”
