Super Awesome Marathon Series AR – April 5, 2018 – Jonesboro, AR – Five races. Five states. Five days. Five times the fun! Join us as we go for a little tour of awesomeness in Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Illinois.
Fast on Flat Marathon – October 6, 2018 – Portland, OR – What’s better than running 26.2 miles on the Portland International Raceway? Run to qualify for the Boston Marathon! This is Portland’s only 26.2-mile Marathon on a race track. The Fast On Flat Marathon is run as an individual, and is reserved only for those who are trying to qualify for the Boston Marathon. The track is roughly 2 miles in length, so marathon runners will loop 13 times.
Super Marathon – June 10, 2017 – North Bend, WA – The Super Marathon is a point-to-point downhill marathon race on a scenic gravel rail-trail 50 miles east of Seattle, Washington. The course is a Boston qualifier and has the best profile in the country for a fast time due to the consistent gentle downhill grade and the low starting elevation. The first three miles are flat, cold, foggy and damp inside an unlit tunnel. Once out of the Tunnel, the gravel trail starts down the hill and keeps on going down, 2050 feet in the next 23 miles. It’s never steep enough to be uncomfortable; you just feel like you’re having a great race.
Whistler Canyon Marathon – October 7, 2017 – Oroville, WA – Enjoy an autumn run through golden larch, quaking aspen, and evergreens in north central Washington. Keep your eyes peeled for bighorn sheep and mule deer as you ascend the single track through rocky Whistler Canyon and up to Black Diamond Lake. The trail then opens up to old logging roads being reclaimed by the forest. This race takes you through sagebrush-steppe and montane forest ecosystems, with sweeping views of the valley below.
Purchasing anything new can be a lot of fun, but it can also be very frustrating. Purchasing a pair of running shoes is no different, and I wouldn’t recommend rushing into a pair of shoes just because they are cheap or convenient.
