Rock CF Half Marathon 3/24/13

This is just a quick reminder to make sure and stop by the Rock CF Half marathon booth this weekend at the Detroit Expo.  I'll be running this half this coming March.  March 24th, 2013 to be exact.  Registration will begin today down at the expo and online HERE.  I'll also be an ambassador for this race so you will be able to get lots of information about the race over the coming months.

The Rock CF Half Marathon was started to help raise funds for the Rock CF Foundation started by Emily Schaller.  The foundation is dedicated to increasing the quality of life for people with Cystic Fibrosis.  Emily herself has Cystic Fibrosis and found that running helped her improve her lung function and has been promoting running ever since.

It's awesome when race directors take the time for pictures!
I ran this race in 2011 as the inaugural race and it was fantastic.  I also love the fact that this race is very early in the season so if you are planning a full marathon in the Spring, it fits in well with your training schedule.  Because it's usually cold in March, we were able to relax in the gym before the race - awesome idea!!
This is the race I first met Rose & Steph as well.
You get to run around Grosse Ile.  Is that cool or what?  Check out the island:

Here's a look at least year's medal.  What a great design!

And this is this year's hat.  If you don't own a Headsweats hat, you need to pick up one of these.  I'll be wearing a headsweats hat at my marathon tomorrow.  They are awesome for training and racing.

So be sure to pick up a registration form and get yourself signed up for this before December 1st when prices will go up.  Make it one of your first races of 2013.  You will be happy you did!  I'll be blogging further about this race over the next few months to give you more details and, of course, I'll be doing a detailed review of the race afterwards.

  1. I'm doing this one! Pumped for flat and fast. :D

    1. You'll enjoy it! It can get a little windy but was great the day I ran it.

  2. Sounds like a Martian Marathon alternative.

    1. 100% better course. As you know, I'm not a fan of the Martian course. I think it had something to do with someone not meeting me on time. Ha!

    2. Yes, I was going to suggest we meet early for this race, then you'd have a chance for get backs.

      Enjoy Grand Rapids.Curious what you think about it.

  3. I LOVE this race!! I'm planning on this half being my come-back race after having our first child this January :) I'd really like to run this one each year.
