One month until Wicked Halloween Run! Woohoo!

Hey, everyone!!!!  It's coming in one month!  That's right, another year of the Wicked Halloween Run in Plymouth on October 27th presented by Kona Running Company.  Some of you may already know but this is also the third and final race of the Triple Crown series for 2013.  Do all three races - ShamRock n Roll Run, Kona Run and Wicked Halloween Run(excluding the one mile) and you get this:
Get this medal if you ran at least the 5k for all three races
I can't wait to earn this at the Wicked Halloween Run.  Not only that but if you sign up for this race, you will get a 1/4 zip tech shirt which looks incredible as well as another awesome medal for this race.

There's several options again for this years race including a one mile, 5k and 10k.  The 5k and 10k will have two waves to help with the amount of people that come to the race.  I really love all the Kona Running Company races since they are a hometown race and incredibly organized.  They really do everything they can so everyone has a great time and feels welcome in their town.

Check out the course for this year.  If you've run the ShamRock n Roll run, then you will know what to expect since the courses are similar certified courses.  I love that they start and finish in downtown Plymouth.

10k certified course
The 10k course, which I'll be running, will have Powerade at the 3 mile mark.  They will also have pacers for the race(as well as the 5k) which is nice if you are looking to beat or meet a goal time.  

Of course, as in the past, they have entertainment before/after the race with music as well as a costume contest and finish line food.  I'll be there dressed up as a runner(I know, original)  It's really an excellent family event that the kids are sure to love as well.  For those there just for fun, line up in the second wave and enjoy the course!  Walkers are always welcome.

For the serious racer, the 5k and 10k are certified course, chip timed and competitive.  There will also be age group awards 3 deep in each 5 year age category.  Not that I'm super fast but I've never been able to place at the Kona races because there are so many fast runners!

Interested in learning more or want to register/volunteer?

I hope you decide to come out and join me for this fun race.  Can't make it this year?  Think about running the Kona Chocolate Run in November(HERE)  Also, if you are not running, they can always use more volunteers.  I'll be volunteering at packet pickup the day before, so if you see me, come say hello!

In related news, if you missed the Triple Crown series this year and wished you didn't, don't worry!  Kona Running Company is launching a new "Kona Grand Slam" series for 2014.  Finish all four Kona race events(excluding the mile) and receive a classic Grand Slam Medal.  The four events are:  ShamRock n Roll Run, Kona Run, Wicked Halloween Run and the Kona Chocolate Run.  More information to follow soon.

I hope to see you there and I'll be sure to have a complete review after the race!

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
