A million thank yous to everyone that participated in our Virtual Run(cation)! It was so much fun to run collectively (even though physically distanced) and see everyone’s different routes and submissions. Choosing the winners of each category was the hardest part.
1) Mile Time Trial, @hi_emmi was our winner with a blazing 5:01 (also a PR 🔥) in NYC.
Q: How many miles, elevation gain?
8.6 miles, ~1600' gain
Q: Best time of year to run it (in your opinion)
Spring or fall, when you get those gorgeous clear SF mornings and early light.
Q: Favorite nearby post-run snack/beverage
On your drive back into the city, stop by Arsicault for one of their world-famous croissants. Or if you're coming from the north, hit up Good Earth for a smoothie (the Stinson Beet is my favorite).
Thank you Marnie! +1 to Good Earth Stinson Beet smoothies! Have a recommended hometown run and a favorite spot to grab a coffee or beer? We want to hear from you! Send us an email at RuncationTravel@gmail.com, or message us on social.
