Everybody has a race list of sorts. You know, the ones that sound awesome and you feel like you'd be missing out by not running them. I mentioned this morning that the Bay To Breakers is on my must-run list. Given a little more thought, here's a not-totally-complete list of races that I really want to run before I'm six feet under.
Most races listed here are races that I just want to experience. If I want a fast, flat race I can always run a marathon in Ohio or on the Outer Banks.
Bucket List Runs Completed:
- New York City (2009)
- National Marathon (2011)
Still On the List:
- Bay To Breakers
- Boston (duh. Though I have to qualify for this one -- no cheating by getting in with charity.)
- Big Sur Marathon
- Avenue of the Giants Marathon
- Comrades Marathon
- Hood To Coast
- JFK 50 Mile (I'm hoping to cross this one off this fall)
- Great Wall Marathon
- Pikes Peak Marathon
What races do you guys hope to run (or have you already crossed off your list)?
