What a bargain to start the new year: The Red Eye in lovely Prince William Forest in Triangle, Virginia on Jan 1. www.vhtrc.org/news/redey
Nominally 50K, it also includes options to do 10M or 20M. About 1/3 of runners do each distance.
- Free. (Ok, I already said that but it's worth repeating.)
- No finisher premiums. (No pressure to finish!)
- No prizes for winning. (No pressure to push!)
- But there is one prize: Runner with Best Hangover. (Enjoy your New Years Eve party!)
Best part: Aid stations stocked by runners. Yes, you have to bring food to share - which leads to the best aid stations. Last year, foods ranged from chocolate-covered bacon (Mmm!) to chicken noodle soup (complete with camp stove to keep it hot)!
