#TheGhostRace #RaceWithoutATrace #RaiseTheDead
Mark your calendars, runners. THIS MONDAY, October 17th, we're kicking off The Ghost Race with an event that is sure to help achieve the ultimate PR...
We are super excited that Lululemon invited us to kick off The Ghost Race, a FREE virtual 8k in collaboration with Strava! The course will be open 24/7 from October 17th - 23rd and runs along the Schuylkill Banks, ending with a massive wrap-party on the 27th. (more about that later...) Of course, by involving some of Philly's most well-known and notorious characters in the running scene, we knew we had to step up our game.
So, it is with great excitement that we present to you, The Ghost Race: "Run With Me If You Want To Live"
Here are the details: Runners will embark on the 8k course at MIDNIGHT on October 17th (remember, that means 11:59pm on Sunday you should be ready to race). Each runner will be market with two yellow streamers tied to each arm. Keep your eyes peeled, because the course will be marked with flashing "RED" and "GREEN" zones. Enter a "RED" zone, and the undead will rise to try and take your streamers a.k.a. your sweet precious lives!! (Note: they're fast...) Enter the "GREEN" zone, and you're safe until the next RED zone. Your mission? Finish the race alive.
Don't want to be chased by the undead? Don't worry, just wear the glowsticks provided at the start and they'll leave you alone for the entire race.
Medals will be given to top finishers & prizes from Lululemon will be handed out to lucky participants!
DATE: 10/17/2016 (again, that means Sunday - 11:59pm- INTO Monday at 12:00am...)
LOCATION: South Street Bridge (Schuylkill Banks Entrance)
COURSE: See image below
*Course marshals will be available during the race and along the entire route. If all else fails, you could always ask a zombie for assistance if you have any questions during the race...
