5 Quirky Running Races
The first criteria for a quirky, fun event is that it has to be one-of-a-kind. A race series that’s organized by some for-profit company in multiple cities across the country is automatically disqualified for being too antiseptic. Locally-based races, on the other hand, usually take full advantage of the hometown scenery and vibe, are embraced by the area running community, and generally benefit a specific charity that’s meaningful to the people there. The second criteria is that it has to make your friends jealous when they hear you’re running it.
