The start of a new year is an exciting time for organizing race calendars and goals for the upcoming 12 months ahead. Here at Nuun Headquarters, we’ve got some lofty goals and exciting events on our 2018 line up.
Our “top picks” bucket list is a reflection of our resolutions this year: Travel more, Inspire Others and Keep Muuving!
#1: Statesman Capital 10k
Location: Austin, TX
Date: April 8, 2018
They say everything’s bigger in Texas. So, we’re signing up for Texas’ LARGEST 10k race! We’re most excited to join Austin’s super active community in a 10k run through downtown and many of the iconic neighborhoods that give Austin its unique personality. Keeping it weird in Austin fulfills our travel and culture bucket list criteria for 2018!
#2: Bay To Breakers
Location: San Francisco, CA
Date: May 20, 2018
Imagine this: Over 30,000 runners…many in costume (and some wearing nothing at all!)...charging across the 12k distance from San Francisco Bay to the breakers on Ocean Beach. This quintessential San Francisco event is bound to pack in the coastal views, the belly laughs and the high fives. If you ask us, it’s definitely bucket list worthy!
#3: Bolder Boulder
Location: Boulder, CO
Date: May 28, 2018
This Memorial Day Weekend, we’ll be celebrating in Boulder kicking off the summer with one of the nation’s largest 10k events. We are especially excited that this year will be Bolder Boulder’s 40th year, which means that the typical Boulder community support and stoke will be extra high. We’re looking forward to kicking off our summer race-cation schedule at the foothills of the Rockies in Colorado.
Date: July 22-28, 2018
We’ve got our sights set on Iowa this year! We’ll be taking it ALL in (literally), by riding the ~468 miles across the state in participation of the annual RAGBRAI event. RAGBRAI is the oldest and longest recreational bicycle touring event in the world. It’s equal parts bike ride and party, so this summer we plan to ride, celebrate and hydrate our way across the state of Iowa! During this week-long ride, 8 Iowa communities will welcome the near 25,000 riders as guests. In some cases, this means that the total population of the town will quadruple overnight. Sign us up for the good times!
Human foosball? We're in!
#5: Wanderlust Whistler
Location: Whistler, BC, Canada
Date: August 2-5 2018
In 2018, we are looking to broaden our horizons and include all sorts of muuvment into our everyday. Wanderlust Whistler is high on our list of events to integrate yoga and spontaneous adventure to our running/cycling schedules. This 3-day festival is set in the mountainous town of Whistler, Canada and features word-class yoga instruction, guided adventures through BC’s beautiful back country, an AMAZING line-up of live music, and a mouthwatering menu featuring local and sustainable ingredients. Nommm! Whoops...we mean ommm.
