2018 – First Week of 100 Miles
Greetings 100 mile participants and blog readers… I apologize for the delay with this post. I have no excuses and will do better next week.
Thank you to the person who put together the summary of stats at the bottom of the tracking spreadsheet. Registration has closed and we have 117 participants. If you were not able to officially join for 2018, this doesn’t mean you can’t run 100 miles, it just means you are not eligible for any prizes. Please keep track on your own. Thank you to everyone for joining!!!
One note of what I call housekeeping, I have been working through the response sheet and sorting through my headbands and keychains. If you don’t know, I make them – Marathang Bands. If you have questions about these, let me know. Please answer the survey if you have not done so. I will keep that open through the end of the month.
The moment you have all been waiting for – weekly PRIZE!!! A Corridor running shirt will be awarded to 2 people. In order to win, I just ask you are current with logging your miles. I choose the winner using a random number generator.
Corridor Running is my local running club. They put on 7 races per year with the mission to promote healthy lifestyles through running events and community outreach. Corridor Running contributes a portion of every race dollar to local youth and families, supports local elite runners and partners with local charities to raise funds through running events.
Congratulations to Debby H and Amy L. I will be contacting you, to claim your Corridor Running shirt.
If anyone is looking to add Corridor Running apparel to your wardrobe, let me know! Sweatshirts, hats, shirts, stickers are all available for purchase.
While the Corridor Running races are complete for 2018, there are a few social runs remaining:
- Run Turkey Run on Nov. 22 in Cedar Rapids and bring a donation for the Madge Phillips Center.
- Ugly “Sweat”er Social and Fun Run on Dec 15 in Iowa City, consider bringing a donation for Shelter House.
- New Years Day Run at Beverly Park on Jan 1. Consider a free will donation to the Cedar Valley Humane Society.
Also keep an eye out for 2019 membership (VIP membership) to be opening soon – as well as Freezefest 2019.
