ROCK N ROLL ST. LOUIS
I have never been to St. Louis, so obviously when I saw that Rock n Roll St. Louis fit into my race calendar, I knew it had to happen. It will be a whirlwind trip with only about 30 hours there, so I won't have much time to get to see everything. Obviously, a must see for me is the Gateway Arch. It is a good thing I have a 13.1 mile tour by foot scheduled to get to see the city. Use promo code FUNNERRUNNER to save $15 USD off Rock 'n' Roll Marathons & Half Marathons (some exclusions apply).
ATLANTA 10 MILER
The Atlanta 10 Miler is one of my absolute favorite Atlanta races! There are numerous reasons why this race ranks in my "must run" in Atlanta but 2 of my top reasons are (1) it is a fairly unique distance (especially in Atlanta) and (2) the course support is AMAZING! This will be my 3rd year running this race and I cannot wait for October 23rd to come around! The Atlanta 10 Miler is also part 2 of Atlanta Track Club's Triple Peach. While the Triple Peach Challenge is sold out, there is still registration available for the 10 Miler as well as the 5K! For more information, go to the Atlanta Track Club website.
ROCK N ROLL LAS VEGAS
Did you know that the Las Vegas Strip only closes two times a year - New Year's Eve and for the Rock N Roll Marathon and Half Marathon? Running down the Las Vegas Strip is like nothing else and an absolute blast from start to finish. Once again, not only am I running the half marathon on Sunday night, I am also running the 5K on Saturday night which will earn me the Remix Challenge medal as well! I cannot wait to run down the Las Vegas Strip again in just a few short weeks!
