Bucket List Races

155419544

Setting goals and dreaming dreams is all part of the human spirit. And while some on this list are lofty ambitions, both in running distance and travel distance, they are none the less my dream races. I’m sure I’ll be adding on as time goes by. But these are some that I thought would be memorable and challenging.  I may not be ready yet, but I will be! 

Bucket List Races

388a15d177b382ac9daf09a515994931

runDisney (Tinkerbell Half, Super Heroes Half, Disney Princess Half, Star Wars Half, Wine & Dine Half, I guess most of them lol).

From all the pictures and stories I’ve heard these races are pretty special. I know my vacation trips to Disney have been magical so their races would be icing on the cake!

Seawheeze Half Marathon

I mean seriously? Combine yoga. running, the gorgeous Vancouver scenery, and a sunset after party????? Who wouldn’t have this on their running bucket list! This race is actually the race that inspired me to try and push further than the 8k as being the longest distance I’ve run. Like runDisney, Seawheeze sells out super fast, so keep that in mind if you add it to your list!

Sand Mine Challenge

The challenges here for me are yes, the obstacle course! But if I could ever, ever be athletic enough to get through the obstacles, what a cool race to add to a list of accomplishments. This is less about location and scenery and more about the challenge of it!

The Wicked Wine Run  

First I want to say, I’m NOT promoting drinking in any way. I do drink an occasional glass of wine. But I also know some people should never touch the stuff. Besides, that’s not the only reason for this being on my bucket list. This race organizes events in several locations. Some are through vineyards (how fun is that? I’m all about the wanderlust!), some are night runs (my fave), and many other unique locations. I love themed events!

Run Woodstock (Michigan)

Hippies, music, meditation, camping, yoga, peace out and hit the trails running! It’s a whole experience. Three days of different events (race distances), so there’s something for everyone.

“Run Woodstock offers a wide range of professionally  timed event distances. RF Events and the roadies of Run Woodstock take each of these events seriously and have great respect for the personal challenge each of you choose. Whether you enter the 100 mile, 100k, 50 mile, 50K, marathon, half marathon or 5 mile, you can expect a first class race experience. When you enter any of these runs or camp with us, we throw in fun organized runs that include the Friday night 5k, Saturday night 5K/10k and Sunday morning 5 mile. Not to mention, yoga, a hippy hike to Hell and the option to get in some *natural  miles.”

*One portion I won’t take part in lol

Bagan Temple Marathon (Myanmar)

Location, location, location! This isn’t just a race/race entry, this is a tourism package deal. Some who just want to run the race get upset by this. But the event coordinators are doing this to boost tourism and help the locals, so if you want an amazing trip this is for you. If you want to run a race and stay in another town, then maybe this isn’t a destination for you.  But beauty and culture is abundant. Breathtaking views and memories to last forever. This one is a pricey one, so a distant dream. But maybe, one day…And maybe one day I can run a marathon lol.

We want to live in Hawaii, at least for a short time. And the idea of races in Hawaii, in that climate, with all the beauty and grandeur that is the islands of Hawaii, I would want to run every race I could while we were there!
