Friday Thread: Running events you love?

A few months ago, I asked you guys what questions you’d like us to discuss on our Friday threads, and a subscriber named Maria offered up this excellent idea:

“Terrell, you do a great job recommending races, but maybe we could have a periodic (once a month) member suggested races. Races that members have actually participated in and that they recommend and why they do so.”

So, I’d love to throw this out there to you all — what’s a running event you’ve participated in and loved, and think everyone here might also? It can be anywhere on the planet, large or small, road or trail (or any other surface!). Don’t hold back — I love hearing about races and events I’ve never heard about before, no matter how obscure 😃 — Terrell
