What an amazing summer that was! Team GB and Paralympics GB absolutely smashed it at the Olympics & Paralympics and it felt like the whole nation was inspired to get active and show their patriotic side. It is a pity that these events only come around every four years, because it always seems to put the nation in such a good mood. We certainly noticed it at MyRace – we had a fantastic response to our Gold Rush event which was supporting Sparks Charity and celebrating all things Rio. We received so many great photos of runners with their medals and union flags/Team GB tops. Bring on Tokyo because we can’t wait! We are very close to filling our Gold Rush event and would love to do so in order to raise as much as possible for Sparks, so have knocked 20% off the entry price – get yours before they have all gone…
Looking ahead to future events, we are currently finalising the next sets of medal designs which we think people will love – as soon as we have more information we will let you know!
As far as running goes, it is now that time of year when we switch the central heating back on, dig out the comfy jumpers and hoodies and start buying gingerbread lattes. It also means we are in the small but great window when we don’t overheat on runs and sweat our behinds off like in summer, but we also don’t need to start wearing our winter hats and gloves. We love this time of year because it also signals the start of our local cross-country events, so enjoy! Get off the roads onto the parks and trails – embrace the changing seasons… leaves under your feet, the low sun, mud on your legs… a great time to be a runner.
And when you get bored of planning your Christmas and freaking out about how many family members you have coming over, take a minute to check out our latest events and give yourself a treat by signing up to one, so at least you will have a bit of bling to keep you warm!
