Triwizard Challenge

Our sixth event for 2014 was the Tri-Wizard Challenge event. The Goblet of Fire has selected you as a Tri-Wizard Champion and has given you a maximum of three daunting tasks to complete! The Tri-Wizard Challenge was a 5k, 10k, and/or a 15k. The “OR” is very important! It means you could complete one of the distances, or do all three for an impressive total of 30k! Also, you could complete the distances with a “team.” Get someone to join […]

Platform Year One

Our fifth event of 2014 was the inaugural Platform event. It’s back-to-school time! What a better way to celebrate going back to school than to celebrate the Hogwarts Express?  And to address all those runners who worried that a ten-kilometer run would be a bit much at that point in the year, we responded: if you can’t run a 10k, certainly you can run a 9 3/4k, can’t you? Hence the first iteration of this now annual event was born. […]

We asked as many people as possible to complete this 5k at the the time and location of their choosing on July 27th, which is the […]
