New Utah race - Tour de RUN

In a few weeks, the inagural "Tour de Run" will kick off - its a new Utah race where competitors will run 3 "stages" (5K, 10K, 5 miles) over an 18 hour period. The winners will be determined by overall time (cycling style). We think this is a very innovative concept and we're looking forward to participating. In the age of "every race has to be a half marathon or obstacle course run or it doesn't count," ideas like the Tour de Run and the entire "Bring Back The Mile" campaign are a refreshing change of pace and a great way to test yourself over shorter distances.

You can check out the TdR's Facebook page, or their official website for more information.

Start Times: 7:00 pm (Friday), 7:00 am and 1:00 pm (Saturday)

  1. This is the first time I have heard anything about this. It sounds like a lot of fun! If I wasn't running a half on July 14th I would totally jump in.

    I am really excited to hear about how this one goes. :)

    1. You'd be great at it Rachelle. It's like Ragnar except that you actually get to sleep b/w races! :-)
