2019-03-27 - Yikes, spring running!

martianIt has been an odd and brutal winter. Spring seems to have taken us by surprise and it's hard to wrap our heads around the idea that it's time to line up and enjoy some races! CHARGE!!! Next up will be the Martian Invasion of Races, the 5K and 10K courses are perfect for those of us not quite ready for a spring Half or Full Marathon! I've run plenty of events in my life and can say that the Martian 10K course is a great one. It starts with 3 miles of stately old Dearborn neighborhoods followed by 3 miles of a wide, winding paved path through woodlands skirting the back of The University of Michigan Dearborn and past the Fairlane Manor, an architectural gem built by Henry Ford and his bride Clara at the turn of the century. The races start and finish in the heart of downtown West Dearborn and many bars and restaurants in town have post-race discounts and specials for those wearing a race medal!

It's time to COMMIT and RUN,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who is digging a bit of sunshine and looking forward to the upcoming invasion.

P.S.: DAYLIGHT. SUNSHINE. WARMER FORECASTS. Any of these things have you feelin' good? Turn your face toward the sun, breathe in the fresh air and let yourself feel inspired for a big year of FUN and RUNNING! Here are some fun favorites to add to your list:

At RF Events, we are looking forward to the day when we'll be able to host races in person for you again! Getting all of our faithful participants back to the racing world SAFELY is our highest priority. Over the previous couple of months, a dedicated safety team was created and is working diligently to come up with the best plan to keep all our racers, volunteers and staff safe. We are consistently keeping up to date with the CDC guidelines as well as the state, county and city guidelines for the location of each individual race. To see a link to a broad outline of what we're working on and continuing to update, click here. This is a fluid situation that continues to change so we will keep updating our plan as warranted. We want to be sure to let you know that we're working on it and looking forward to seeing you at a starting line soon!
