New Year's Revolution Run

What are your plans for New Year's Eve? Are you in Utah? Do they include running?

Maybe you should consider spending New Year's Eve in Salt Lake City, and maybe they should...

Yes, normally this blog is dedicated to cycling, but since I have some strange obsession with triathlons, and since 1/3 of a triathlon involves running, the subject occasionally surfaces.

So, did you make a resolution at the beginning of 2011 to run, and haven't started yet? Want to get a head start on 2012? Want to put yourself into a caloric deficit in preparation for the festivities later on? I know of the perfect solution!

The New Year's Revolution Run gives you the chance to run in the climate-controlled Olympic oval for four hours on New Year's Eve morning. Run or walk as much as you want. Interested in doing a 5k? Run 11.3 laps. Up for a marathon? It's only a measly 95.5 laps.

Are incentives your thing? For each lap completed, you get an entry into a drawing for some nice prizes (you can also "cheat", and get additional entries by bringing in non-perishable food items that will be donated to the Utah Food Bank).

Along with supporting the Utah Food Bank, a portion of each registration will go to the Autism Council of Utah.

Come out Saturday morning on 12/31 from 8:00 to 12:00 and run or walk as far as you want. It will be fun, you will be supporting a couple of good causes, and it's a perfect way to end 2011 with a bang!

Registration info can be found here (use the discount code "NYRTen" today to get $10 off your registration).

Ooooooohhhh tempting. If I can find the $$$ to register, I'll do it. I might only be able to do the 5k (haven't run in 4 1/2 wks), but it's better than nothing, right?

came across your blog searching for this run on google, and so glad I did! Thanks for posting the 10 dollar off code! :)
