STILL LUCKY, JUST VIRTUAL
It was just a year ago that we were busy getting ready for our annual St Patrick's Day race (AKA "Badger Cove"). Sadly, that was the first of dozens of Brazen Racing events cancelled since then.
The good news is that we are still here and ready to put on in-person events the minute they are legal again. That's not happening before Saint Patrick's Day, but we don't want to skip one of the most ridiculous holidays of the year, so we are taking the party virtual!
DISTANCES FOR 2021
We normally have a 5K, 10K and half marathon around the green hills of Livermore, but we know the lockdowns have left many longing for more distance, so we are including a 50K option (able to be done cumulatively, logging miles each time).
HOW IT WORKS
Participants sign up and commit to a 5K minimum (10K, half marathon and 50K distances also available). You can run, cycle, row or do whatever exercise you decide on.
Starting on 3/17/2021 (and continuing through 4/16/2021), participants will get their miles done.
Del Valle Regional Park (where the event normally takes place) is currently scheduled to be open to the public (during regular hours and with the park's social distancing rules in effect) and you can run there during that period if you like, but you can also run at any location you like, including on your treadmill. You can even jump on the stationary bike, rowing machine or just do whatever you like to do. The important thing is to make sure you get moving!
Once you are done, you will go to the results link and enter in your distance and time. Like all of our virtual races, the Badger Cove event is non-competitive, but posting your results makes it official that you got it done.
Ready to share the joy? Post up a picture and/or your run info with #badgercove. And to see lots of others doing the same, join the Be Bold Be Brazen Facebook group.
After the event is over, participants will be mailed their shirts and medals in the mail (with a little Badger Cove luck, towards the end of March).
