A vast majority of the runners I know and love do not run races for all the additional perks you can get. For us, those perks are just that: perks. We'd like a nice finisher's medal and a wicking t-shirt would be great. However, we will never turn DOWN great stuff!
Well, I have become privy to some knowledge about the upcoming Boulder Backroads Marathon that I wanted to share with any of you who may be looking for a late September Marathon in a beautiful place. Besides running in a place so many elite athletes call home for its pristine scenery and epic training runs,
runners of the races put on that weekend are in for a treat.
*Brooks Podium Shirt – free, with BM logo on it.
*Same cool hat as last year, but it is blue this year. And waterproof!
*Free pair of Powersocks for ALL runners (relay too).
*Free Teko socks to all marathoners.
*Cool, powder-coated, Boulder Marathon/Avery Beer bottle opener.
*Killer medals, of course.
*Supported course, aid stations every 2 miles.
*Appropriate food options after the event.
*The support of the City and County of Boulder.
*And you get to hear me speak! Ok, that might have drove you away ;)
I hope to see you in Boulder on the weekend of Sept 20th!
