Speedy and striking!

Speedy and striking!

Q: What’s better than running a half marathon or marathon?

A: How about running a half marathon or marathon that features a “fast as hell” downhill course? And how about a “scenic” fast as hell downhill course?

Q: What’s better than that?

A: Saving some money (aka cash, dough, coinage) while running a scenic, fast as hell, downhill half marathon or marathon.

Q: How much money?

A: How’s $10 grab you? Or better yet, how about a chance to run for FREE?

First things first.

Last week I was named one of the Revel Race Series ambassadors and it’s time to get the ball rolling… downhill.

Click on the image below to learn more about the REVEL Race Series and its trio of races (REVEL Rockies, REVEL Big Cottonwood and REVEL Canyon City).

I’ve just created team “Tripping The Kenyans” for both the REVEL Big Cottonwood and REVEL Canyon City races and here’s you chance to sign up for a team too.

Why join a team?

By signing up for a team, you can save $5 off of the price of registration. And coupled with the additional $5 Facebook discount available during checkout, you can save up to a total of $10 (pretty sweet).

And be sure to sign up before August 1st to beat the price increase on the REVEL Canyon City race.

And it’s worth noting that the REVEL Race Series does NOT have any of those annoying registration/convenience/nonsense fees that many other races tack on to hide additional costs.

And there’s additional team benefits:

  • Teams get a professional group photo taken at the race
  • Teams with 12+ members get tent space at the finish line
  • Teams are eligible to win a prize for the lowest average time in each race distance

So talk to your friends/running group and see about starting up your own team (and coming up with a cool name).

And you’re also all invited to join team Tripping The Kenyans (and can save up to $10 immediately). Just click on the links below:

Team Tripping The Kenyans- REVEL Big Cottonwood (Sep. 13th)


Team Tripping The Kenyans- REVEL Canyon City (Nov. 15th)


Yes, I did.

In addition to offering team discounts, I wanted to let you know in the upcoming days/weeks I’ll be running contests to give out a FREE registration for each of the three REVEL races.

And the first contest starts on Monday, August 4th. So be sure to check in and see about running a marathon “gratis.”

Join a team, save some cash… and Run on!


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.
