The 2012 Bank of America Chicago Marathon broke records this week. The registration reached maximum capacity of 45,000 runners in six days — 25 days faster than 2011 and almost 31 weeks faster than 2003. The enthusiasm with which people have shown toward marathons, 5ks, and charity walks is encouraging both in the sense of fitness awareness and charity support.
Because we at Events.org encourage healthy lifestyles (except for the occasional treats from Mark) and charitable involvement, we would like to share upcoming opportunities at races across the country. Running in the USA, Marathon Guide, Runner’s World, and Charity Walks Blog offer great resources from which you can find a race near you.
Don’t feel discouraged about getting involved if you aren’t the running type; be sure to check the event webpage to see if there are volunteer opportunities at a race in your community and register.
Ready, set, go!
