I’m going to be a Sasquatch
With race names like the Sasquatch Scramble and the Honey Badger Half, I think my next running event will probably be a lot of fun. Inspired by Christine’s post about NOT having an upcoming event, I finally went and signed up for this crazypants race.
In the clever about page, the race organizers describe their mission as such:
Our mission is to create fun, quirky, offbeat, and mysterious running events that attract an eclectic mix of runners, revelers, urban legends, and everyone/everything in between.
Co-founders ‘Marathon’ Matt Forsman and Charles ‘Chuckwagon’ Lantz have a combined 30+ years of running, racing, and event production experience.
Additionally, they have a lifetime of experience turning people onto the sport of running in unique, offbeat, and sometimes goofy ways.
We like to think of ourselves as a party production company with a running problem.
Since my own short runs along the same routes are getting a bit predictable, I will welcome the silliness that comes from an organized running party as well as the challenge that gets me off and into the trails. Yeehaw! Sassy, I’m coming for you.
