Running Race Events are Back! – Race Directors Lonnie Somers & Creigh Kelley
Running race events are back. Yes, and with a vengeance. Boston, New York, Chicago, Tokyo, London, and Colfax marathons are just to name a few coming back this fall. Some of these are predicting 25,000, 30,000, and more runners! Just a few months ago, we were still in the pandemic with no end in sight. That was quick!
So how will this work with local governments and CDC guidelines? Well, all of these races are fluid and things can change rather quickly. That is why there are no solid plans in place as of yet.
My guests in this episode are two highly respected individuals in the running community. Lonnie Somers, Co-Owner of https://halsports.net/ (Hal Sports) here in Denver. Lonnie either owns or manages several events not only in Denver but in Colorado and other states. Hal Sports is a full event company. Creigh Kelley has put on over 1,000 running events and is the race director for the https://www.runcolfax.org/ (Colfax Marathon) in Denver. Both Lonnie and Creigh are also racing day announcers.
This is a fascinating conversation of where race events were, where they are today, and what they will look like as they evolve post-pandemic. You will go away with a better understanding, appreciation, and respect for Race Directors and running events.
Lonnie and Michelle started the https://www.fetalhealthfoundation.org/ (Fetal Health Foundation.) Twin to Twin Transfusion System (TTTS) should have taken their lives. But the frantic search for information and resources, fetal surgery saved them. Today they are healthy identical twin girls. They created https://thegreatcandyrun.com/ (The Great Candy Run) and today https://halsports.net/ (Hal Sports) and dedication to running is their business and passion.
Runners, it is getting hot out there as we transition into summer. Remember to take more fluids, run slower in the heat, and try to run earlier in the morning when it is cooler.
Thank you for listening to the https://feelgoodrunning.com/ (Feel Good Running Podcast), and please share this with your running friends and on your social media platforms. I would very much appreciate it.
Train hard, run harder, and be well. And remember to be kind to others, even if some are not kind to you. It's good for the soul!

Inspirational Running Quote
"There is something magical about running; after a certain distance, it transcends the body. Then a bit further, it transcends the mind. A bit further yet, and what you have before you, laid bare, is the soul.” ~Kristin Armstrong
