One of my favorite TV Shows, “Futurama,” often began episodes with quirky professor Hubert J. Farnsworth” walking into the conference room at Planet Express spouting his catchphrase: “Good news everybody.”

So, let me follow suit… “Good News Everybody.”

I’m finally able to officially announce that I’ve been chosen as one of the “Ambassadors” to the Revel Race Series (check it out by clicking here).

Like Shirley Temple Black, Henry Kissinger and the “older version” of Mr. Spock, each of us 14 Ambassadors gets to spread the word… about this cool series of races.

For those of you not familiar with the Revel Race Series, it’s a trio of Marathon/Half Marathon races located in the western states:

  • Revel Rockies (Denver, Colorado): August 17, 2014
  • Revel Big Cottonwood (Salt Lake City, Utah): September 13, 2014
  • Revel Canyon City (Azusa/Los Angeles County, CA): November 15, 2014

Each of these races feature incredibly scenic courses that wind through canyons, forests or national parks. Also, the series donates proceeds from each of the races to nonprofit groups with emphasis on health and environmental causes. You can read about Revel’s mission statement here.

And there’s one other key attribute common to all of the Revel races…

How low can you go?

Revel Big Cottonwood Elevation


They’re fast.

Downhill fast.

Like seriously PR fast.


For example:

  • The Revel Canyon City Marathon drops 5,167 feet (almost a full mile in altitude) from start to finish.
  • The Revel Rockies Marathon features a downward slope of 4,521 feet (just short of a mile) over the duration of its 26.2 mile course.
  • The Revel Big Cottonwood Half Marathon offers a decline of 2,866 feet (over half of a mile) during its 13.1 mile trek.
USATF certified and fast!

USATF certified and fast!

Each of the marathons/half marathons in the Revel Race Series features downhill courses that scream “Personal Record.”

But don’t worry, each Revel course is USATF certified and are some of the fastest Boston qualifiers in the entire country.

The races also have some serious bling for their participants, including: cool tech shirts, finsiher’s medals, FREE race photos and personalized videos.

The Revel Race Series also offers one of the most generous transfer/withdrawal policies anywhere.

In the weeks/months to come I’ll be talking more about the Revel Race Series, including some “hill training tips,” discounts, race updates and sharing plenty o’ beautiful pics.

If you have any questions, please visit the Revel Race Series website or drop me a note at TTK.

Revel your races… and Run on!

  1. Congrats and fantastic Futurama reference!

    • Thanks very much. I’m a huge fan of Futurama (I’m friends with one of the cast members). And FYI, there is a Simpsons/Futurama crossover episode coming out this Fall on The Simpsons. I’m sure I’ll be seeing plenty o’ Futurama stuff a ComicCon this week.
