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!!
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. 😉
In a sea of franchise race series, Magnolia Marathon is truly a hidden gem. With all the same amenities you’ll find at a chain event (and many you won’t) without the corporate price tag. The Magnolia Marathon offers the same benefits as a big-time race, but with a home-town feel!
