I am looking for runners to join my team for the Bourbon Chase Oct 16-17th. [more inside]
Is anyone else running in the City to Surf this year? I don't know if I'm proposing a meet-up or just a general mutual online support thingo, but I thought it would be nice to compile a list of who's doing it. And maybe we could meet up briefly at the start to wish each other well, or even do a training run together a week or two before if we aren't all vastly different levels. [more inside]
Is anyone interested in joining me at the Beat The Blerch events on Sept. 12 and 13 in Carnation WA? There's a 10K, a Half, and a Full marathon. If all goes well I will be making my first marathon attempt.
Sensationnel, la quinze ans de MetaFilter! Rejoignez-nous pour La Course de Garcons & Filles de Cafe!
"On July 14th 2014 the French will take over Daley Plaza, in a celebration organized by volunteers belonging to many organizations under the umbrella of the French Consulate. Le clou du spectacle, the show stopper? It will be la Course de Garçons &; Filles de Café, bien sûr! This is when waiters or wannabe waiters compete in a 200 meters sprint that involves running as fast as you can while balancing a tray full of (plastic) glasses — without spilling a drop of grand cru."

Mr. Fig and I are doing the Bastille Day 5K, so I thought I'd see if any other mefites are running (or interested in the post-race party), and turn it into a meet-up. [more inside]
I'd like to run with someone who won't mind that I am running a 16 minute mile. Let's meet up in a couple of weekends at Alki for a run with our progeny.
As part of this year's Tartan Week, NYC will hold the 10K Scotland Run in Central Park on April 6th at 8 AM. Registration is $37 and may be done here, and kilts are encouraged but not necessary. 10K is about 6.2 miles, or: twice as long as a 5K. Can you do this? Yes. Can you run or walk this? Yes. I believe in you. [more inside]
My very informal running group is going on a midnight official-start-of-summer run, followed by beer. The run will be a leisurely (10m/mi) 5K along the Newport waterfront. [more inside]
From the website: Journey to the End of the Night is a race through city streets. You will try to make it to six checkpoints as fast as you can, while avoiding being caught by chasers. Those who are caught will become chasers themselves, rising to pursue their former friends and allies. [more inside]
Any other MeFites joining LA Leggers this year? There's an orientation meeting this Saturday at 7 am, and the first group run gets underway the following weekend. [more inside]
