First question: Do you like to run? I have been running since 2012 but I never really thought of myself as a runner until a couple of years ago. Why? I run ALOT! Running is a stress reliever for me and my main form of exercise. In my HR career, there are several stress relievers I take advantage of and running is at the top of my list! The Run and Ride Series is a stress reliever.
Second Question: Do you like to ride roller coasters? When I was in college studying for my travel and tourism degree, I had the opportunity to work at my favorite amusement park…Cedar Point, The Roller Coaster Capital of the World!® In the past, it was referred to as America’s Roller Coast – I prefer that tagline myself. However, with 18 roller coasters as well as so many traditional rides, it is definitely a world-class operation. The Run and Ride Series is also a FUN stress reliever!
Celebrating 150 Years!
This year, Cedar Point is celebrating 150 years of history. From the beginning as a beach to the world-celebrated amusement park that creates a new record-setting roller coaster every 2-3 years while maintaining all of its other roller coasters, this is THE YEAR to visit and why not make it a RUN and RIDE weekend!!
The Run and Ride Series
This is the fourth year I am attending another weekend in Cedar Point for the Run and Ride Race Series on June 13-14, 2020. This is one of three events throughout the year (King’s Dominion and California’s Great America) and in my opinion one of the best race options for your budget. There are 4 races to choose from 1 mile, 5k, Quarter Marathon, and Half Marathon. My favorites are the 5k and Quarter Marathon and 2020 will be my fourth year participating. This year is more special because our running group has decided to make it an ‘out of town’ travel race and we have a team so it is going to be oh so fun!
You can’t beat the registration prices. My husband and I both run the 5k, he does the half marathon and I run the quarter. We also enjoy the park for 3 days, get tons of awesome swag and get to hang out with many of our runner friends and we did it for just over $200 this year! We registered as soon as it opened last year. However, the prices are still great in comparison to other series. By registering early, you save! You get so much for your money and it is so much fun!
- Prices until 2/29/20: Half , $105; Quarter: $70; 5K: $60; 1 mile: $50
- Prices until 4/30/20: Half , $115; Quarter: $75; 5K: $65; 1 mile: $55
- Prices until 6/11/19: Half , $125; Quarter: $80; 5K: $70; 1 mile: $60
- Race-weekend prices: Half , $135; Quarter: $90; 5K: $75; 1 mile: $65
- Each race registration includes a 1-day park pass. You also have the option to upgrade to a weekend pass ($15 more…an amazing deal).
So join us for a weekend of FUN and STRESS RELIEF! I promise if you are a runner and a rider – you will NOT be disappointed!
All the best… *judean*
