2019-04-11 - Run, cheer, run!

martianA big weekend in Running is upon us, locally, the Martian Invasion of Races on Saturday in Dearborn and on Monday, The Boston Marathon. The running weather for Martian is looking perfect and you still have the chance to enter online until noon today, or you can register at the expo tomorrow, or race morning. With a 5K, 10K, 13.1 and 26.2, we can choose our challenge based on how our training is going ... or not going! It can be quite an inspirational day at Martian, those running the 5K or 10K won't have long to wait after their finish to see the Marathon leaders come in, around 10AM. A marathon finish line offers a powerful motivational experience for the spectator, seeing goals and dreams come true, live and in person is priceless. Try to make it to Dearborn for the experience, also, if you can sneak it in on Monday, catch some of the Boston Marathon coverage streaming online. https://www.baa.org/races/boston-marathon/watch/tv-coverage
Run, cheer, run!

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!
