A few weeks ago I was contacted by the Race 13.1 Team about a partnership.
May 9th they will be heading up north (they’re NC based) for the first Race 13.1 Richmond Race. This particular race starts at the Richmond International Speedway. You run a lap before heading out. I’m expecting a PR since my inner Dale Jr. should be channeled after that lap.
From their website, here is what you can expect at all Race 13.1 events:
USATF certified courses for all distances
Awards for top-three finishers overall and in each age group
Live race announcer and music
Race-specific finisher medals for all 13.1 finishers
Race tech t-shirt for all runners
Pacers for 13.1 runners
Post-race party with great refreshments
A chance to win great prizes from our sponsors – maybe even a new car!
Plenty of well stocked and staffed aid stations throughout the course
They offer 5K’s, 10K’s and Half Marathons.
Not near Richmond? Here are there other sites this 2015 calendar year:
Wilmington, NC 2/22
Roanoke, VA 3/1
Evans, GA 3/26
Tennessee Valley 5/2
Richmond, VA 5/9
Greensboro, NC 5/17
Raleigh, NC 6/6
Fayetteville, NC 9/6
Raleigh, NC 9/19
Little Rock, AR 9/20
Newport News, VA 10/18
Nashville, TN 10/25
If you are an east coaster, I highly recommend purchasing the Race Pass. Run as many races as you can for $199. Considering some halfs I’ve run are almost that for a single race, it’s a great deal.
Look for posts leading up to this race specifically detailing my training, my fueling and anything else related to racing.
Like rewarding myself with Shyndigz after Saturdays’ long runs.
