That sounds great! Maybe we can do something like that here in the Twin Cities.

There are no sponsors. The clubs pay for everything to the tune of $8/runner.

It's so refreshing not to be bombarded by advertising. Sure does make you wonder about for-profit races that charge $50-$100.

That sounds like a fun race. It must have good sponsors to field unlimited food?

The annual 10M Club Challenge is on Feb 28, 2016. A great tune-up for an early 2016 HM.

Limited to 1000 participants, this race always fills quickly.

I've done it several times and it's a nice course. Despite the low price (free!), it has aid stations, unlimited food at the end, and everyone gets free race gloves. (I take last year's, drop them mid-race after my hands get hot, and then get a new pair at the finish!) What a deal!

The downside? You must be a member of one of the 27 running clubs in MD or DC.
