Mad Trapper Snowshoe race is a classic series, and we love the night version. Snowshoe by moonlight & your headlamp, navigating through peaceful woods through silky deep snow on somewhat compacted trails. Venues with Mike at The Arc are always fun!
Berlin 5K Run for Joy is a great warmup for the upcoming marathon. You get to meet alot of great people from around the world, fun costumes and lots of national flags. Great reason to visit the historic defunct TempleHof Airport as well!
Landing in Germany a day prior, we found a 10K in Munich that was a run in the park.
Boilermaker Road Race is a classic event you can do over and over again. Billed as Worlds Best 15K Road Race, the whole town is behind this event. This was a RunK2J team Roadtrip, and we had tons of fun!
While visiting Harold’s family n WPG, we noticed there was the Manitoba Marathon happening the same weekend. Serendipity! Had to do it.
Pool swim in 50m Carleton Univeristy pool. Number of lengths depends on the event distance. For the long course the 500m swim is up & down each of 5 lanes, ducking under buoys to get over to the next. Opportunity to warm up in diving pool before the swim. Bib pick up/transition zone/post race snacks etc. all at P6 parking lot. Bike course is out & back both directions (loops) from T-zone along Colonel By. Run course is out & back along Colonel By drive.
RunK2J was well represented in Ottawa Race Weekend. Volunteering activities spread over 3 days, and we had runners entered in all 5 race categories! Thanks for everyone in participating.
The marathon course is two loops. New for 2022, the second loop is slightly different with a section on a bike path along the St-Lawrence. The course is relatively flat with only a few minor hills in old Longueuil and the ramp over the highway for loop two of the marathon.
The course starts in downtown San Francisco near the Bay and ends at Ocen Beach, which is adjacent to the Pacific Ocean (hence ‘Bay to Breakers)’. The first half of the course runs through the downtown as well as some nice residential areas. The second half is run through beautiful Golden Gate Park.
The BMO Vancouver Marathon weekend markets itself using the phrase ‘Stunning Running’. The scenery is awesome. You have views of the Coastal Mountains for most of the run and a good portion of the second half of the race is in beautiful Stanley Park.
