What: Runner’s World Classic
The Hat Trick: 5k, 10k & Half Marathon

Where: North Andover, MA

When: July 16-17, 2016

“Run with us, the editors of Runner’s World magazine, through beautiful North Andover, Massachusetts.”

Finally an event for BibRave Pros in Massachusetts!  I’m pumped!  So pumped that I signed up for 3 races in one weekend!  What was I thinking?!  HAHA.

I’ll be running the 5k (7am) and 10k (8:30am) on Saturday morning and then I’ll be back for a half marathon (7am) on Sunday.  They call this the Hat Trick.  You can also just register for each individual race or the 5k and 10k which they call the Five & Dime.  The races start and finish at Merrimack College and are organized by DMSE.  They are the guys that run the show at the Boston Marathon and now the Falmouth Road Race so you know it’s going to be a great event.

Another cool thing about the “Classic” weekend is that it includes so much more than just running.  According to the race website, it also features:

·      Seminars presented by top industry leaders
·      Live music after the half marathon (Sunday)
·      Pre-race dinner with Runner’s World editors (Saturday)
·      Kids races and children’s programming (Friday)
·      Celebrity Mile (Saturday)

As for my race plan?  I’m thinking I will warm up with the 5k, race the 10k and treat the half marathon as a fun long run.  We will see as race weekend approaches.

Have you ever raced more than one race in one weekend?
