What started as an idea in Milwaukee to race 6K one morning instead of their usual workout, is now being spread into all of the November Project tribes in February 2015 as the first all-tribe race. Like the founding 6K fathers in the frosty “MKE,” we’ll all run this odd distance as a way to show off our training, to mix in some flat land, and finally get our scores on the board by using our new November Project tracker (recently built for $0 by one of our core Boston members).
Each city will have the month of February to either trade out a workout or plan a new morning throughout the week as their race day. 6000m will be the entire length of the race and not another step more. Each racer will be encouraged to wear their own watch to this event even though official times will be yelled as finishers cross the line. Each race will include good vibes, encouragement, and at least one super weird trophy to the fastest male and female overall (Milwaukee had a giant summer sausage that brought on more than a few jokes).
Co-Leaders around North America will begin to post and announce their official dates for their race in these final days of January.
WARNING: This race is fierce. We love group runs, themes, and all kinds of nonsense. With that said, this is basic racing and you all should look at your time as something you can be proud of. You CAN all run 6K. We, as athletes, will need one another for support on this special morning, so think of your local tribe almost as a team or family.
WARNING PART 2: Even though these amazing sunrise photos were clearly taken from the internet, we can assure you that no runners or animals were harmed in the process of building this blog post.
WISCONSIN NOTES: You guys have two tribes in one state and everyone is racing your 6K race. You guys need to represent.
