Ok folks, anyone out there know how this works? I'd like to do a couple of 5K runs this summer, my schedule is hellish, so that is limiting, but almost all the runs I can find on line are for charity, which is great, but ya know? I don't really want to go out there knocking on doors to raise money. I know that sounds horrid, but I don't. Especially if I'm going to do two or three different ones.
Do you HAVE to raise money to go in these things? Doesn't your enrty fee cover some of this? Where can I find runs that are just runs, but not SUPER serious????
I have, on the fundraising side, found this cool site which hooks up athletes (THERE's a generous term) and sponsors. If you go here on Fatty's blog (he IS an amazing fund raiser!!!!) he'll tell you ALL about it. I am part of team fatty at this point and we've raised quite a bit of money so far just by registering our regular work outs. Free for us, and I know, sounds like a free lunch, but you don't have to give them any financial info and no spam increases have been noticed by yours truly here.
See, I'm not all evil, I just want to go for a couple of 5Ks as a goal, and not have to schlep around for funding.
