Some of the best race memories I have have been Destination Races. My first half marathon was run through the streets of Annapolis, Maryland and in case you missed all of my insta posts last weekend, my team just completed a relay race through the Gettysburg area.
What makes destination races so appealing?
I love to explore a new city on foot and running a race is the best way to check out the highlights of a city (without getting lost!). A destination race is a great way to escape for a girls/guys or couples weekend. Even though you will be running, it still feels like a vacation. Sold yet?
Craft Classic Half Marathon & 5K
I’ve teamed up with Road Runner Sports to highlight their new Craft Classic half marathon and 5k races. There are 3 great race destinations to choose from: San Diego ( July 17th) , Atlanta (Sept. 10th) and Phoenix (Oct. 16th). All of the races benefit Team RWB, a national organization that serves our military by enriching the lives of veterans with social and physical activities.
What makes the Craft Classic Half Marathon and 5k Races so unique? Race Perks! Every runner will receive: a race shirt, Knockaround sunglasses, commemorative pint glass, finishers medal, free beer, free race photos, live athlete tracking, age group awards, overall awards, team awards, and the half marathon winners will WIN THEIR WEIGHT IN BEER! Every race location will have a special beer release in conjunction with the race. Each city will also have fun training runs leading up to the races. You can check their Facebook page for updates on local events.
