2019-04-03 - I can, because I run

martianA wise old runner said, I don't run because I can, I can because I run. Our fitness level gives us access to so much life has to offer. We can fly up a flight of stairs or park in the far corner of the lot at Costco and not be in the tangle of cars vying for a front row spot. We can visit New York City and take in all the sites on foot, even walking from Battery Park to Central Park. Yes, running can add years to our lives and life to our years. Really, a new study shows a fir 75 year old is twice as likely to live to 85 than somebody with a sedentary lifestyle.

Get out the door today, so you can get out the door forever!

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who was amazed to find out the results of a study that showed those who ran in the Martian Invasion of Races experienced better sex lives, made more money and were found to experience more joy and happiness than dead people! Enter here and live it up!

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.
