MBE: Unconventional Races

Monday Brain Exchange is sponsored by Jill at Finishing is Winning.

Topic: Unconventional Races

Question: Have you ever participated in any unconventional races? If so, tell us about them. If not, is it something you would consider and if so which one(s)?

Hmmm...  I have to be honest, I don't exactly know what qualifies as an "unconventional race."  I guess the most unconventional that I've done is the Blue Moon Run, which isn't really a race at all, but a run on the NCR Trail nearby at night when there's a Blue Moon.  I ran one of the Blue Moon runs, in 2007.  It was dark and everyone had glow sticks and race transportation was in a cargo van, sitting on the floor.  All very strange.  They were supposed to have another one on New Years Eve 2009, but it was snowed out.  See my original blog post on the Blue Moon Run, which makes me smile because I refer to Doug as being "new" and now Caryn & Doug are married and have a baby!

So, besides the Blue Moon Run, I don't know if there are any truly unconventional races that I've done.  I guess maybe I need to see what others say in their responses....

Running under a blue moon sounds interesting! Is it a difficult trail to navigate with rocks and tree roots? That sounds challenging without being able to see well.

I would think your Disney Wine and Dine race that took place at night would classify as unconventional.
