2017-04-05 - A Midsummer Night's Dream Run

randy oberunSo, what's the connection between runners and Shakespeare... besides that some of us wear tights? How about a run in honor of the fairy king Oberon, where we shall race around the forests, glades and orchards as we party on a Midsummer night. Any excuse for a run and a party! may I introduce, The Oberun 5K, a run or walk surrounded by live music, games, a bonfire, merriment and yes, a Bell's Brewery sponsored beer garden that will be serving Oberon! The creative crew here at RF Events continues to amaze me with ideas that go from fun ideas to reality. It may seem like magic but it's a complex, detail oriented process that is a labor of love that comes from the creative passion of what they do. I look forward to what I'm sure will be a sweaty, fun, magical night to remember. I'll see you at the party!

To run or not to run? Let's run!

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner looks forward to the magic that can come when Michigan small businesses come together around a run. Thank you Bell's Brewery, Wiard's Orchard, RF Events and our charity partner http://www.karenstrail.org/ This will be the perfect event to trick ... I mean talk, your non-running friends into. Walkers welcome!

2017-03-29 - What a difference a day makes

randy coldsunnyLast Friday, 77 and Sunny, followed by Saturday's, freezing rain and cold winds. What a difference a day makes, but as far as the daily run goes every healthy day is a perfect day! When overcoming adversity we are rewarded with a great sense of accomplishment, perfect days are rewards in themselves. Get out and run.

PS: The April 22nd Martian Invasion of Races is just 3 weeks away, yesterday I previewed the course changes for this year's events and I think you will agree that they rock! The 10K, Half and Full Marathon have an additional mile of historic Dearborn neighborhood streets, this reduces some of the long out and back parkway section. In addition, for the Half, there is now an additional 2.5 miles added in a classic rolling Dearborn Heights neighborhood, also shortening the parkway section, not that the parkway is not a beautiful part of the run, but was perhaps too much of a good thing, the new additions offer more variety and fun new views. If you have not joined the invasion in a while or have not experienced this out of this world event, come join us. Enter at http://martianraces.com/

PS: Yesterday was the spring release date of Bell's Oberon beer. This seasonal delight takes its name from the fairy king Oberon from Shakespeare's, "A Midsummer Night's Dream". We are always looking for an excuse to party so... how about the Oberun, a midsummers night 5K on July 14th! Expect an enchanted finish line party in a forested beer garden, around a blazing fire with games, music and merriment!
