I had seen this race advertised on facebook and what initially intrigued me was the medals being given out for the half and full marathon distances... They were pretty much the sweetest medals ever...
I knew I wouldn't be ready for the half marathon distance yet, but thought this would be a good warmup for the Riverbank Run 10K I was planning on a few weeks after.
Boy was it ever.
That's the pretty bright red chunk you see up top there... Right before Mile 6, when you're already exhausted from the mountain bike trails and thinking you're close to being done.. LIES, I TELL YOU!
Sadly, I don't have as many pictures from this event as I would have liked. (READ: NONE.) But I will tell you it's a gorgeous course, and the improvements that they have made to it this year include a Pig Roast post-race celebration, over $16,000 in prizes from Patagonia (LEGIT. HUGE DEAL.), tons of prizes from Gazelle Sports, and all sorts of other sweet swag.
PLUS, in my opinion, Michigan Adventure Racing always gives out the best race tees. Bar-none, hands down. All my favorite tess are from them.
It's an amazing race and I would totally tell you to go and sign up and check them out...
Except they're so awesome they sold out months ago and the waiting lists are also ALL FULL UP. How sweet is that? That being said, definitely put this one on your calendar for 2015. I know I will!
