I can’t believe August is tomorrow (where is summer going?!) Regardless, I made a goal for myself to run one race a month. My race for August is Fort2Base. I wrote all about it here, but in short, it’s a challenging and unique race where civilians get a glimpse at the military base! There are two race distances: 10 nautical miles (11.5 miles), which begins at historic Fort Sheridan and end at Naval Station Great Lakes via the spectacular Green Bay Trail. I did this race last year and really enjoyed it! The second course is 3 nautical miles (3.45 miles) within the private expanses of Naval Station Great Lakes.
I’ve co-hosted two fun runs and gave away free race entries to Emily and Amy and am personally signed up for the 10NM option (although I really haven’t been training for it by covering any long distances…so we will see how it goes!)
And as a race ambassador- I am giving away a free race entry to Fort2Base- winner gets to choose the distance! Enter the Fort2Base giveaway using the Rafflecopter widget below.
FYI- This Friday is the last day to register in order to get your race bib personalized so if you can’t wait, sign up for Fort2Base here and use Fort2Base discount code 2014F2BPETERSEN10 for 20% off either race distance! Registration is ahead of last year and even with the addition of 30% more spots in the 10 Nautical Mile event, it is on track to sell out in the next few weeks.
