>General Running>Volunteer Race Director-- Would you participate in a race like this?
I do volunteer race directing in Florida for two charitable organizations, both charities benefit Autism. I have a 5K/10K coming up in April. In September, I do another race a 5K. The second race, I'm thinking about adding a 1000 Meter Paddle Board race. Paddle Boarding is really "hot" here. It's a very popular sport, and you can board all year long.
We would still do the 5K run. But we would add a 1000 meter paddle board to the run, so the people could do a 1000 meter paddle + 5K, or do a 5K run without the 1000 meter paddle board race. What are your thoughts?
Half: 1:48 (March 3rd, 2013)
Full: 4:05:40 (March 17th, 2013)
Sub-4:00 hour Marathon
Sub- 125 poundsSub- 1:45 hour half.
yeah, that's me.
I would! Er, if I knew how to paddleboard. You should also make a paddleboard-only option.
I did a duathlon race in the Bahamas that was a beach run plus a short swim. I came in second and won a six-pack of beer!
PRs: 5K 21:03 (4/2012) 10K 43:06 (12/2011) 13.1 1:37:01 (3/2010) 26.2 3:29:13 (1/2012)
1K is pretty short for a paddle board race. 2 miles - 5km might generate more interest. Swim/Run/Paddle is another kind of event that is catching on and might be a huge hit down there in triathlon hell.
2013 H1: 7 hours/week base. Q3: Train for goal race. Q4: Goal Race.
