Runners Escape

Want to get away and run in some great events?

Looking for a chance to run in some fun events outside of your home turf?

Let us take you away.  New in 2013 we will be organizing destination running events. Register for an event in location XYZ and we’ll take care of the getting you there, hotels, pre-race and after-race events and of course, lots of fun.

We are selecting events now, so if there is one you’ve had your eye on let us know…nothing is too close or too far away.
