The Extreme Totem Pole Race is held annually at the Hood Scout Reservation and is both hosted by and benefits the Andrew Jackson Council of BSA. In addition to a beautiful 5K or 10K tromp through the woods, registration also included post-run zip-lining! You tell me one other race that ends with zip-lining!!
The Frosty 15 is an out and back 15-mile and 15K trail race held annually on the beautiful and historic Yockanookany section of the Natchez Trace National Scenic Trail in Madison, MS. This year’s freezing temps weren’t enough to detour the approximately 100 race participants from braving the cold to tackle their distance of choice and earn their fireball and finisher’s mug!
When I chose The Great Scorpion Trail Run as my first official trail race, I picked a real doozy!! However, after completing the 25k, I feel properly indoctrinated into the subculture of trail runners. This race really had a lot to offer … read on for all the details and to see the pics I snagged along the way!
I was *beyond* excited for my triumphant #Return2Racing at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Marathon, especially after such a lengthy COVID-induced racing hiatus! I was so excited, in fact, that I PR’d both events.Quarantine does a runner good, I suppose. 😉
The Run Run Rudolph 5k/10k race looked a little different this year than in years past but there’s just nothing like a finish line, even in 2020!
The Trick or Treat Trot 5k was ALL treats and NO tricks! That morning, I actually ran the NYC Marathon (virtually) but I JUST HAD TO ATTEND!! I love dressing up in costume, and this year we had a super special reason to do so.
I have to admit … this event was a pleasant surprise! The city of Baton Rouge is a hidden gem and the event itself is a unique running festival that celebrates passion for the sport of running combined with Louisiana culture. #LouisianaMarathon #GeauxRunLA #HalfCrazy #BeachToBayouChallenge
RISE & SHINE! This “Coastal Running Festival” combines two of my favorite things: running and scenic views along the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast. #RunShine #SoakUpTheRun
You had me at race HOODIE and SNOWGLOBE finisher medal!! Bodies Race Company – Jackson once again delivers on their promise for cool swag and a fun holiday-themed event.
“Run run Rudolph, Santa’s got to make it to town!” In this case, Santa *did* make it to the lovely town of Brookhaven just in time to collect “Toys for Tots” and see runners off at the “Run Run Rudolph 5k, 10k, and 1-Mile Kids Run.”
