A little over a year ago, as I was researching races for the newsletter, I stumbled across a kind of race run in Europe they call “sky running.” They’re marathons and ultras run in really high locations, like up in some of the highest mountain ranges on the continent. What I thought to myself was, I had no idea something like that was even possible.
Do you have an adventure in running that’s on your bucket list, that you’d like to pursue? What is it, and what would it take to get ready for it? Love to hear what you guys are dreaming about. — Terrell
I'd love to run a marathon along the US east coast and pick up plastic and other garbage along the way and earn points/props for the amount of clean up we do.
I would love to do half marathons as tours of the major European capitals. I lived in Prague for a number of years and would be thrilled to do a halfathon going through Old Town Square and across the Charles Bridge.
I like to do trail best Utah vacation racing 3 days of racing and this one up in Canada which is like 3 days as well elected to that well Good number 10 this type of racing before anything ABA challenge in fun staying there not just for one day but extra days
Half Marathon Petra Jordan is a goal of mine.
I’ve been meaning to sign up for the Bigfoot 200 mile race. I just need to do it. I’ve run 4 100-mile races and a number of 50-mile and 50k races, so the intimidating milestone of a 200-mile race really is next.
When I was on Kilimanjaro earlier this year for my 30th birthday, there was one guy on the same route (different group) who was running the whole thing. I was so impressed. After witnessing that, I made a plan to run the Everest ultra marathon once I get my last student loan paid off as a reward to myself and some motivation!! I'm super excited about it, I work very well with goals and rewards. :P Overall, I'd really LOVE to get to the point where I can do a 100 miler. I just ran my first 50k on the 7th so after a few more of those I think I'll go for a 50 miler and then keep upping until I hit 100. :D I'm obsessive and I won't stop until I do it!!
I've never thought about a specific running adventure, but I'll definitely be looking on this thread for ideas!
For me, sky running is not in the plans although it is something I'd definitely like to follow along with - I like some of the races mentioned here as well. My plans are to get thru this pandemic unscathed if possible and run literally ANY half marathon !!
I spent this year running away from the virus and the post-election craziness... In 2021 I plan to run my age and raise as much money as I can for cancer... am a cancer survivor. Eight years ago, at 62, I ran my age in a Relay For Life fundraiser... I was still working and hit up all my vendors for donations... raised $8K.... and realized that no matter how slow you run, it's better on your feet than walking...
I would like to do the Great Wall Marathon in China.
Big Sur for sure. Something across the Golden Gate. Yosemite, Yellowstone. Dreaming bigger, Paris.
Ha ha, nothing so elaborate as what you will get here but I will be doing a half marathon in Key West Florida, something I’ve always wanted to do since I moved to Florida in the summer of 2017. I have always wanted to do a run there for its location as well as being the most southern spot in Florida. Will be doing it in January 2022.
HURT 100 in Hawaii...or really any island. I dont care as long as it warm and near a beach and there is a cold beer waiting at the end for me. LOL
The Great Ocean Road in Melbourne, Australia. That's on my list!
Hi. I just want to run In wine country, Hawaii or Paris. I feel like it will take at least 2 years for things to get back to pre 2020.
Mine isn't actually running. I'd love to ski either the Birkebeiner in Wisconsin, or actually do the Vassolopet in Sweden. These are sort of the Boston Marathon of XC skiing, but anyone can enter and try. But, seeing as both take place at the busiest time of year for me, and would involve a lot of travel (in the case of the Vassa, LOTS and LOTS of travel) I don't see it happening.
Someday I'd love to run Boston, but I don't know enough people to raise the necessary funds. Rich people who want to donate to charity, hit me up! Also next summer for my 50th I want to find a fun 50k to run.
I dream of running a half marathon (or marathon) in a scenic or exotic or otherwise cool location. The Big Sur marathon comes to mind, as do the Berlin and Paris marathons. Alaska, Hawaii, ...
Not interested in an Ultra, but love the idea of 'sky running'.
My bucket list run is the Dingle Marathon in Ireland. You run along the ocean cliffs with incredible views!
I would LOVE to be able to run an ultra one day! Doing something that *extreme* just really appeals to me. I'd love to run a mountainous ultra out west once I get a marathon or two under my belt!
