10-Week Spring Series

 

The Good Times Running Series returns in 2021, and we're changing things up yet again! We're offering the Spring Series in a virtual component, but with a hybrid twist. See below info for our hybrid model.

Plus... PR Mylies are BACK! Grab a PR for the Spring Series in Week 9 (and complete all 10 weeks total) and we'll send you a PR Mylie with your Spring finisher's Mylie and Spring-themed Good Times koozie!

Registration is open - Week 1 begins Saturday, April 24!

 

Good Times Series Runs Into 2021!

2021 Spring Series Hybrid Model

Here's the game plan: We are feeling optimistic about being able to host at least a couple opportunities for in-person Good Times races during this series. However, we are asking everyone to sign up for the Virtual Series and participate virtually. We are aiming to produce a few live races during a couple weeks - and you may choose to participate or not in any or all of them. If you don't feel comfortable, can't make it, or live too far away, just complete that week virtually and submit your results online.

PLEASE NOTE: That all in-person events will be an additional charge of $5 per race if you are registered for the series. Friends and other runners can join any of our in-person races at a cost of $15/race. We will give you as much notice as we can on where, when, and what week's we are producing the in-person option and you must pre-register for the event.

 

All runners must complete their runs virtually if we don't offer an in-person race that specific week.

Here's how it will work:

Sign up to register for the 2021 Virtual Spring Series.  If you register after 4/28/2021 you will not be eligible for the Golden Mylie medal, but can still win weekly prizes!

Join the 'Good Times Series' Club on Strava to stay connected and cheer on other Good Times runners.
