What will you rise above in 2018?
WHAT IS RACE AROUND?
At Race Around, our goal is to help you rise above and race around whatever challenges you might be facing in your life. The process of setting a goal, training, and following through on the race is symbolic of overcoming the difficulties put in your path. With teams of 6 runners, we encourage all skill levels from beginners to seasoned runners. The course is designed to welcome anyone and everyone: from parents with strollers, to racers in wheelchairs, those who anticipate the challenge of their first race, to those who run every weekend during race season. We can’t wait to share this exciting course on our September 22nd relay!
NEED HELP TRAINING?
We want to make sure you feel prepared so you can safely enjoy the race. Our awesome team is in the process of developing training programs, so stay tuned.

Nope! But safety vests are required before 8am and after 5pm.
Whatever challenges you might be facing, we want you to know they do not define you. You have worth, value and purpose. Shut out the self doubt and the "haters.” There are eight of us on the race committee. In one way or another, each of us has used running to help us discover a strength and determination to do hard things. The same stamina and perseverance we use to run has helped us overcome anxiety, depression, physical limitations, chronic illness and more. Running hasn't solved our problems, but it has given us a confidence we didn't have before. We want to share that with you. We’re here to provide a positive and uplifting environment where you have the opportunity to conquer something physically hard; proving to yourself that you are stronger than the challenges you are facing. On your bib there is place where you can write what you are "rising above" in 2018…so come Race Around with us. Rise Above your doubts and fears and cheer on others doing the same!
