Race Wishlist: Auto Show Shuffle

I’ve decided to start a new series spotlighting upcoming races that I want to enter in 2014. First on the list is:

The Auto Show Shuffle: I literally just found out about this one and is possibly going to trump out another race planned for January.

It takes place on January 18th at the Detroit Port Authority at 8am. And if it’s not obvious it coincides with the North American International Auto Show. It’s strictly a 5K run/walk but it offers a tech shirt and *new this year* finisher medals! It seems like a good fit for me seeing as that I work in the auto industry… I should have an Auto Show medal… makes sense right? It’s priced out at $30 which is average for a race of this type.

The course takes you along the river walk by the Ren-Cen… and we’re talking January here so it’s going to be c-c-c-c-cold! Believe me, I go to the Auto Show every year and it is freakin frigid. I actually have no cold weather running gear yet so I’m going to have to do a little research on how to keep warm in the dead of winter. Either way I’m pretty sure this is going to be my first race of 2014. Who’s crazy enough to join me??
