It’s been just over a week since Run Free 2013. Hopefully everyone is starting to recover from what was easily the most intense Saturday of their life.
As a part of our review process we’ve been pulling together some stats, stories, and fun facts from the race, when someone said, “We should share these on the blog!”
So that’s what we’re doing.
Below, in no particular order, you will find some stats, stories, and fun facts. Enjoy!
1. When all was said & done (Due to the nature of the race, much more was said than done), we ended up with 1088 runners from 24 countries, 43 states, and the District of Columbia. Wow!
2. Over 1100 pictures were posted, and those are only the ones we know about (We’re finding that a lot of people posted to flickr, forgot to use hashtags, or otherwise put pictures in hard-to-find places. We’re finding new pictures every day).
4. People completed the race on foot, on snowshoes, on bikes, on scooters, and even in a wheelbarrow. One guy ran it naked (we left that picture out to prevent scarring you for life).
8. The race took place in snow, sun, and rain. It ran through mountains, fields, beaches, neighborhoods, and inside a shopping mall.
What were your favorite moments from the race? Leave them in the comments!
P.S. We’re launching our next ridiculo.us project in just a few hours! The project launches at midnight, but you can check out the preview link here. Could you help us get the word out?
