... in case you actually needed these spelled out...
#10 - More time to work on your speed so you're able to outrun the bears! Just kidding, we have an industry-leading bear & safety program in the works.
#9 - More time to wrap your head around "The Blood," our Vertical KM and how to run it! Check out some of our suggestions here.
#8 - More time to brag to your friends about how your tackling your first stage race and how that’s so much harder than the 10K they’re training for. Maybe they'll be inspired to enter a team and make your mini-vacation into a proper running road trip.
#7 - More chances to win one of our registration incentive prize packs from our sponsors - we’ll be drawing 1 registered runner April 1st, May 1st, June 1st, July 1st, August 1st, & Sept 1st (and, yes, you can win twice if you're that lucky)!
#6 - More time to work on your downward dog in preparation for the Yoga & Trail Running Retreat in Golden June 25-28th.
#5 - We'll make sure you get an extra pastry Golden's own Crust and Crumb bakery: you’ll have earned it with all the extra training you're doing... or just thinking about doing (it counts, right?).
#4 - You can book your vacation days off work now and avoid conflict with your other co-workers who just want that extra time for house cleaning, wine tasting or cruises.
#3 - You can book your accommodation and meals package early, scoring the best roomie, and making sure you're in before they sell out!
#2 - So you can start dreaming of those beautiful Golden trails, viewpoints, and all the other great stuff to do while here!
and the #1 reason...
is to SAVE MONEY! Everyone registered by March 15th receives a $50 gift certificate that can be used for their own foods & accommodations package, to attend the Yoga & Trail Running Retreat, or to share with a friend for their registration!
