Spring is the time of the year when there are so many fun races in so many different places. How does one ever decide which ones to run? It sure seems like they are all on the same weekends too. I’ve come up with a little spring race bucket list of my own of races I’d love to run someday.
Spring Race Bucket List
New York City Half
Although I live pretty close to NYC, I have never run a race there. The New York City half has been on my radar for a few years. I threw my name into the lottery this year but unfortunately did not get in. Perhaps on of these years!
Napa Valley Half marathon
I just loved our Ragnar Napa Valley last fall and would love to go back and experience more of Napa. Looks like a gorgeous course and I will run for wine.
Hoosier Half marathon
On the beautiful Indiana University Bloomington campus where both of my kids are currently enrolled. The timing has not worked out for me yet but I would love to run this low key but I hear super hilly race.
New Orleans RnR Half marathon
I cannot believe I’ve never been to New Orleans before! Seems like the perfect place for a racecation. I love RnR races and I bet it’s the perfect blend of fitness, food and fun.
Nashville RnR half Marathon
Also another city that is pretty close to me that I have not been to yet. Between the music, the food and oh yeah the running, Nashville seems like such a fun spot for a race weekend. I heard about this fun Nashville Notes City Guide from my friends at BibRave and Brooks Running. They have highlighted all the must have foodie stops as well as fun IG photo spots you don’t want to miss.
I hope to “Run Happy” at a few of these Rock N Roll races next year. Are any of these on your spring race bucket list?
