7 Secrets to Run Your Best Virtual Race.
The head of the Rock N Roll Marathon Series shared an announcement across social networks with an update on how theyre approaching races in 2021. It wasnt a particular, conclusive technique for ensured races. It didnt include any updates or information on marathons or triathlons. It was clear and truthful and made me feel like were on the very same page.
Andrew Messick is the CEO of The IRONMAN Group– the Rock N Roll Marathon Series becomes part of the company. RnR as its frequently called is a big worldwide race series with very fun marathons and half marathons. Its likewise among my favorites and Ive run numerous RnR occasions. When I saw his video message today on Twitter I stopped and paid close attention. I know a lot of you wish to know if your preferred race will be pressed back, cancelled or switched to virtual prior to you start or register training.
I keep asking when will the huge city races be back due to the fact that I think massive events (like the New York City Marathon and Boston Marathon) … can be held once again smaller sized races with less resources can use their design to also go live again.
Logistically running events with THOUSANDS of individuals squeezed together in tight areas, utilizing porta potties with no hand washing, getting cups of water from strangers, etc. are the hardest things to put back together in a Covid world. If theres a method– the military-like operations behind the Boston Marathon and NYC, will be able to figure it out.

Back to todays statement …
Messick didnt give runners any guarantees warranties since one can make any promises right now. He doesnt understand when its going to be safe to hold conventional endurance occasions without threat of cancellation due to Covid related factors.
I appreciate this update since it was sensible and seemed like it was athlete to athlete. It also was a reminder to anyone annoyed that their marathon was cancelled and/or mad at race organizers that– THEY WANT TO HOLD EVENTS.
Race organizations are harming. Business have actually went out of service.
