See all those markers? Those represent a person who has signed up for the Phedippidations World Wide Half Marathon Challenge and Kick the Couch 5k, 792 of them at the time of this post. Pretty crazy that a “goofy, little” podcast turned a simple idea into such a global event! The event is taking place on Oct 13-14, but check the website for more details on the actual dates.We have already surpassed the number of entrants from last year and could very well break 1,000 by race day. Now, although the Half Marathon is the highly advertised race, there is a Kick the Couch 5k race for wishing to do a shorter distance.
At this stage in the game, unless you are already in shape, the half marathon is a little too much, too soon. However, the Kick the Couch 5k is within reach. Don’t miss out on this exciting event, it’s not too late!!!
Go to www.worldwidehalf.com to register and learn more about this event. Chances are, there is someone in your area that’s going to be running! And if they are running the half marathon and you the 5k, make the route such that you start the run together or finish the run together. That’s the beauty of this event!
