I did this race as part of being a BibRave Pro, along with fellow pro Lissa, who did the Christmas Story version. We planned a fun day which included the 5k, watching both movies, having treats, and shooting a Red Ryder BB gun.
The race provided amazing emails, with every detail laid out. There was a delay on the medals for Elf, so they mailed the swag, which was a zip up sweatshirt and winter beanie, early and then the medal arrived a couple of weeks later. The sweatshirt is super cozy and the beanie is also really warm! Amazing swag for a virtual event! The bibs were also super cute! The medal is heavy, and the ribbon is double sided. I would totally do this event again next year, for the swag alone!

Yeah, if you read my blog you totally know I’m overusing that title. I’m ok with it though. 🤷🏻‍♀️
The swag for this event is amazing. It arrived well in time for race day, and included a visor, super comfy zip up sweatshirt, medal, and finish line tape. So much fun! The emails were plentiful and Informative, and the website was easy to navigate. Definitely high on my list of virtual races. I’ve done their wonder Women event as well, I guess next year I better add Superman!

RaceFest was a little different this year but it was a live race, so I’m thrilled about that. Packet pickup was at Armored Cow and it was super smooth. They had a good truck too so we had lunch which was fun. My friends loved the beer selection.
Race morning we parked easily, and the race was getting underway. We were wave 5 so we had time to use the stinky porta potties and stretch before we started.
The bulk of the race was on the greenway. It was maybe a quarter mile each way on the road. With a half and a 10k going on together there was some bottle necking which wasn’t ideal. I’d say 25% race fault and 75% rude runners. The scenery was gorgeous. The greenway ran along UNC campus and there was lots to look at.
The hills were a little rough. This is usually a hilly race so it’s all good there. Course support was on point and they had tons of water and snacks at the finish, as well as beer for participants. There were multiple food trucks as well.
The medal is awesome and the shirt fits well and is good quality!
We had a great time, but I hope the race goes back to South Park next year!

This year Hot Chocolate had to go virtual, so a friend of mine put together a small event. I will mostly focus on Hot Chocolate's end of it. They let us know early on that the event would be virtual, and the emails were frequent and informative. I got my swag the week before the event so I was able to bring it to the mini event that my friend put on. I even got an email letting me know that my swag was on the way. They sent us hot cocoa mix, chocolates, a jacket, a bib, and the bling, all in a reusable drawstring backpack. The facebook event page was interactive during race day, and I even won a race entry for a future race for answering one of their posts! overall a great event, and I am looking forward to doing it live again in 2022!!

I did this race as a BibRavePro. This was our second year doing this race, and the swag was on point. Metal water bottle, long sleeved tech jacket, bling, and a chance to add a collar or bandana! Memphis is proudly wearing his collar now! Plenty of email support keeping us apprised of timelines and swag delivery, which arrived quickly so that I had it for the race. The swag was all really great quality, and was packed well for shipping. I really enjoy this event, and it gives us a reason to take Memphis out for long jogs! We hang the bling over his food and water bowls, since he earned them! So much fun, I highly recommend!
