Our Fall Race Calendar




If you've been following our blog then you know that there are some races that we do plan way in advance (like Disney races) and then there are others we ended up doing at the last moment because we like to play it by feel.  Although I love Disney races, I kind of like when I can sign up for a race during that same month.





So with that being said, here is our tentative race plan for the rest of the year. Of course we may throw in a few smaller races as they come up.

This is a compilation of both of our race schedules thus far.

September

Rock n Roll Virginia Beach Half Marathon

Harvest Festival 5K

Lewisburg Lights 5K (possibly)  This is a night time run so should be fun.

October

Would love to find a Halloween theme race.

Chicago Marathon

November

Mickey's Jingle Jungle 5K (at WDW)

Wine n Dine 10K (at WDW)

Wine n Dine Half Marathon (at WDW)

December

Running of the Elves  


Will you be running any of these races?  Do you have any suggestions of races we should run this fall?


                                                                                 We will be linking up with the gals from TOTR

  2. Fun schedule! I did the Virginia Beach half several years ago. I really enjoyed it. I'm doing Monumental half in Indy in November. Highly recommend. It's always great fall weather and a nice flat course. And I love the Santa Hustle series. It comes to Indy in December. Fun and festive.

  3. You're doing Chicago! That's great! I want to do that one some day. I haven't done any Disney races because they're pretty pricey with registration, travel and everything. I have a much quieter race schedule this fall than last year.

    1. Disney races are one of our favorites but they are very pricey.

  7. You're doing the Chicago Marathon? That's so exciting. I always said I would love to go up there one day & do a race. It seems like such a cool city.
    I want to find a Halloween race too. I always love a good costume

  8. Looks like an exciting lineup - Virginia Beach, Chicago, Wine & Dine! I only have one race planned for the fall, a local half marathon. I might also do a Turkey Trot but it depends on the weather.

  11. I would love to do RnR VA beach some time I wish it was not always labor day weekend. It's still so hot then too

  12. We have similar, though different schedules. Instead of Wine & Dine, I'm doing Disneyland this weekend. Instead of Chicago, I'm running New York. Looks like a great race schedule and can't wait to hear about all of your adventures!

  13. Looks like some great races coming up in your schedules!
    I just cancelled my plans for my fall marathon, not sure if I will be running any others unless I can score some free race entries I am starting to realize life as a penny saving college student has it's drawbacks when it comes to running!

  14. That is a heck of a lot of racing and traveling. Didn't realize you were doing Chicago. Virginia Beach would be nice too !

    ReplyDelete
  15. Jealous you are doing wine and dine! Maybe next year for me. I haven't done it since 2013!

  16. I love Halloween races! When Wine and Dine was at the end of September, the 5k was Halloween themed and the Disney characters were dressed up in costumes.

  17. That sounds like a really fun fall! Fall racing season is definitely my favorite thing!

  20. I totally hear you about the joy of being able to sign up for a race at the last minute, instead of having to plan months and months in advance for the Disney races. So cool that you'll be running the Chicago Marathon! Unfortunately I'll be in DC that weekend running the Army 10, otherwise would so love to meet up with you!!! You've got such a fun race schedule coming up this fall. The Running of the Elves sounds intriguing!
