2019-01-17 - The off season for running

randy trailJanuary, as I've said, is a time to not run too long or too hard. It's a time to get out the door consistently so we will be ready to ramp up as winter wanes. Throw in a fun winter road trip like heading to Traverse City for the Bigfoot Snowshoe race on Saturday, January 26th, when the hotel rates are low and the wine tasting lines are short. Snowshoe running is a bit more work than running... but there is no learning curve! You get to log 5K or 10K no matter how long it takes to stumble around to the finish line! Get in on this FUN day in the woods. Follow that up with the Super 5K, another chance to run easy and fun but still snag the finisher medal and glass to show you've earned your spot on the couch for the big game! End your fun off season with a pre-St. Patrick's Day celebration 5K or 1K at the Shamrocks and Shenanigans in Ann Arbor on March 10th. After that, no more Mr. Nice Guy! Time to ramp it up for spring and take our running and our goals to the next level.

for now, run, have fun, so we will be ready,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who for now, is happy to run for fun.

P.S.: Time to start thinking about your spring goals! There are 100 days until our favorite spring tradition - Trail Marathon Weekend! This Michigan classic is now in its 33rd year! Join us April 27th and 28th in Pinckney, MI for 5 Miles, 13.1 Miles, 26.2 Miles or 50K! Wooden medals to all finishers and cozy patch beanies to all entrants!

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!
