If I had unlimited time (and bank account) I would run every race I could, but alas that is not life 😉 I find every year there are more and more great races popping up.
I have already shared my 2017 race calendar but for local(ish) people wanted to share other great races that I am not able to do but are still worth looking into.
Woody’s Half Marathon – I am still on the fence on this one for this year. Call me a wimp but I want to see what the weather will be like 😉
Red Deer Women’s Fun Run -This race has turned into an annual tradition for my Mom and I. We started doing Mother’s Day runs in Calgary, then found this great local one and did it before I had any kids and ever since 🙂 It is a great family morning!
City Chase – This is Canada’s largest urban adventure race and every year it is on my list to do but I have to make the dates work. I have only heard great things about it and know I would love it. Teams of two navigate around the city to do various challenges.
Foam Fest Run – Another one on my list but I am actually scared of hurting myself falling with the foam – haha!
Troubled Monk Run (We are running this one!)
Mud Hero – We have been doing this race ever since it came to Red Deer and I am SO sad to miss it this year due to being gone for Sea Wheeze. I have ran this race 7 months pregnant & 3 months pregnant and have always had a blast! This race is the largest obstacle race in Alberta with 18+ obstacles over 6km. It is already over 70% sold out so if you are thinking of registering get on it 😉
Chocolate Chase (We are running this one!)
Harvest Run – Another run I’ve always wanted to do since I love fall running in our city but we always seem to be away this weekend so maybe this year I will stick around for it 🙂
What I love most about these races is that there is something for everyone, no matter your running/fitness level 🙂
