2019-07-18 - Run smart or don't run

randy freepHeat is the most dangerous condition to run in, It is imperative to respect these conditions and run as smart as possible, it can truly be a life or death situation. That said, I love extremes! On record hot day, a simple short run becomes my Mount Everest where the risk and rewards are high. My plans will include running short, shady loops from a lakeshore where I can plunge myself in at any sign of heat injury. I will start hydrated and will continue to hydrate with water and electrolyte replacement fluids. My run will be short but filled with adventure not available to me on a so called, "nice day!"

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!
