The Department of Natural Resources Michigan is once again holding their Bob Ross themed charity run. Read more here:
Ms. O'Kelly from the DNR Michigan was so kind to provide a special discount code for our community. If you'd like to participate in the race shoot me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send you the coupon code.
I think it would be nice if we could get a little group of runners going for this event! 🙂
Oh I did this last year! You get a cute little shirt, a medal that looks like a painters pallet and your get to save some happy little trees! I’m so happy they are doing this again. I will be sending you a message shortly Felix!
Lilikins Great to hear! How was the race and the whole procedure? Are you just running the 5k or is there some kind of time tracking?
So the event was disrupted by the lock down. I think the original date was for late March /early April. By that time basically everything in Michigan was locked down except for essential businesses. I believe the original plan was to have multiple race sites at parks all over Michigan but due to Covid restrictions it became more of an honor system “race”. Basically they told us to go out and walk/run in a safe socially distanced manner anytime during that week. So it wasn’t a true race but we got a cool shirt, medal, and the donations went to the parks.
Lilikins I like that! Keeps a non competitive feeling for the whole event, very relaxed and easy going
Does anyone from the EU want to split the shipping cost? It's an additional $24 per order, I would then ship it forwards from Austria
Lilikins I was sooo bummed, I was supposed to host a class at the michigan parks but covid shut it down. Im a Certified instructor and would have loved to have done it. I dont thin ill be able to just this year also, but will participate and get my cool medal!
I was very excited to see that they had opened this up to international folks but then saw that postage costs were almost as high as the cost to enter. that made me sad again lol it's a great idea though and the medal and t-shirt are brilliant.
FatGandalf omg you win for best username 🤣
FatGandalf Where are you from? If it's in the EU we can split the shipping
Lilikins lol it's my nickname - my mate reckons i look like the character Buck from Deadpool who gets called FatGandalf by Vanessa in the bar.
Felix unfortunately I'm outside the UK now that my foolish countrymen decided that brexit was a good idea. feels like getting almost anything from the continent now is such hard work and costly!
I signed up.. I'm not supposed to run anymore.. but I won't tell if ya'll dont tell 😃
wybnormal oh I totally just walked my 5k last year. While hunting for Pokémon on my phone. But at least it got me outside!
