Virtual Bacon 5K Challenge – This virtual race runs from March 8 – March 17. Athletes will complete a 5K (3.1 miles) during the period from March 8, 2013 through March 17, 2013……..and EAT 3 PIECES OF BACON WHILE DOING IT!!  You may complete your 5K  with a 3.1 mile run/walk or you can split it up over the time frame – entirely your choice.  Plus this medal is huge with stained glass!  The New England Aquarium’s hands-on, traveling education programs reach 35,000 children in diverse communities every year. Funds raised through the marathon team will be used to support these outreach programs, giving children and families from underserved neighborhoods what is often their first experience with marine life, including touch tide pools and free Aquarium admission. Each program incorporates conservation messages to help area youth understand the importance of nature, why they need to help protect the oceans and the simple things they can do to make a difference. The programs also encourage young people to be active in the natural world.
  12. Swamphouse Half Marathon (virtual option) – Early March.  This is another half that I will be breaking up into 2 long runs.
  13. St. Baldricks Virtual Race – My son and I will both be running this virtual race in March.  You can chose from the 5k, 10k, & 13.1 race registration is $25 and gets you a personalized race bib, swag bag, and custom finishers medal.  1 mile kids fun run registration is $10 and gets you a custom finishers certificate.  Join this St. Baldrick’s event, and whether you decide to run, walk or crawl, we hope you’ll be a part of the excitement. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government. Get involved and you’ll be giving hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers.
  14. Mad March on Cancer Virtual Half Marathon and 5K – Put on your wildest hat, get your Mad Hatter on and run either a 5k or a half marathon!  You choose the location, you choose your pace.  You can even do it at once or split it up over a few days.  We just ask that you finish your run between March 15-24.  When you have completed the run, be sure to post your time in a comment, and that glorious medal will be yours!  Photos would make our hearts go pitty-pat, so please post those too!  Cost is $30/person and includes a personalized bib and awesome finisher’s medal.  As an extra bonus, we’ll throw in the warm, fuzzy feeling you’ll get knowing that you’re making a donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
