Where Runners Are From

We have runners signed up from every state in the US except 3 at this point ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ. The highest number comes from California with 26 runners. Second place is Pennsylvania with 18 runners, plus Angie and I bring the total to 20. If you are in central PA and want to join us on our run send us an email.

Believe it or not we have 6 runners signed up from Alaska this year (not the warmest place in November) from Fairbanks to Ketchikan.

Also, special shout out to John Danby our sole participant from Wyoming. This is his third year in a row!

We always have a lot of Canadian runners who participate every year . . . including one runner, Ice Beard Ed McLean, from the Yukon. The highest number of runners come from Ontario. ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ Huge shoutout to our neighbors to the north!

The largest European country represented this year is the UK ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง with runners from Shetland, West Midlands, Perthshire, Middlesex, Fife, and Avon and NE Somerset.

For the first time in three years we have runners from the Ukraine ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ, Finland ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ, Switzerland ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ญ, and the Netherlands ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ participating.

There is always a big turn out from Australia ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ! These runners are just entering into their warm season (I’m so envious). So far we have runners from Victoria, South Australia, Queensland, and New South Wales signed up. New South Wales has the largest representation which makes sense since it’s the largest state by population.

Still Time to Register for this Event!
