Since I’ve crossed a few races off of my bucket list this year, I thought it was time to add some new ones to it! Here are the races that are currently on my list.
Dances with Dirt Hell 100k relay – This is a 100k trail run relay in Hell, Michigan! Sounds lovely to me. Unfortunately the race is by invitation only so this one may prove to be difficult to cross off the list. Not to mention I need to find 4 people who are just as crazy or crazier than me to tackle this race with me.
Disney Half Marathon or Marathon – Everyone raves about the Disney races. Nice bling, great scenery and just an overall fun time! So of course I want to do a Disney race!
Nike Women’s Marathon – If all goes to plan, I will be crossing this off on 10/14!!! I will let you know if it is worthy to stay on or add to your bucket list.
North Country Run – I am signed up for the half marathon version of this run next year! It is a trail run in the Manistee National Forest. They also offer a full marathon and a 50 mile ultra as well! What else makes this race special? Their claim to fame is that they have “the largest half marathon and ultra and 3rd largest marathon medals in the country!” You also get a bunch of cool race swag when you sign up for the race early.
Spartan Race – A very popular mud / obstacle race series. And it hasn’t come close enough to me for me to try it out yet.
Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Run – This race is in honor of firefighter Stephen Siller and it retraces the run he took from the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the Twin Towers on September 11th. There are many satellite races for this event but I want to run the real one in New York City. I imagine it to be a very emotional but heartfelt race.
Turkey Trot – Detroit – This looks like a fun race AND it would help counteract those pesky Thanksgiving Day calories that I will undoubtedly consume. It’s just hard to fit a race in on a holiday. Maybe when Little B gets a little older, I will be able to do this one.
So there it is! My race bucket list. There are some great races on here but I want more! Tell me what race I need to add to my list!
