This year will see the third rendition of the Renegade Run, put on by Type One LLC. I made it to their first year, and was ice stormed out of the second year (seriously, while you were all running, I was sitting at the side of the road, unable to go forward!).
I’m hearing already that the wave they’ve set aside for the New England Spahtens is pretty full, and with code NESPAHTENS getting you $10 off the ticket price, why not run with the best OCR community out there?
Where: Wompatuck State Park, Hingham, MA
When: SUNDAY Oct 26th, 10am
– It’s been a busy time for Type One – with the American Heart Association and Mass Mayhem projects – how many of those events are part of your full time calendar?
It has been a fantastic year so far! We are coming off of extremely successful events, Mass Mayhem and The American Heart Association Heart Challenge! The positive feedback we have received has been overwhelmingly positive, and it energizes us to continue to produce these races, and make each one better than the previous! We are focused on this year’s Renegade Run at this time, and will soon after look to schedule our next events. We have every intention on repeat performances of both Mayhem and the Challenge in the coming years!
– Renegade Run was bigger and more badass last year – how do you plan to top it again this year? What lessons were learned?
This years’s Renegade Run will be starting and finishing at the Campgrounds of Wompatuck, which allows us to chart an amazing course that includes some pretty impressive elevations! We have increased the course to 5 miles and it will be taking runners up and down Prospect Hill, which has some very technical wooded trails, with difficult terrain changes, as well as some paved trails. We have a slew of new obstacles and some old favorites that everyone will enjoy. We are always learning how to build upon our last event, both through our experiences and by listening to our participants, and we find room for improvement with each obstacle race we host. We know what makes a good race since we have participated in many, and do our best to incorporate all those elements we find to be outstanding. We strive to constantly evolve and give our runners an amazing and challenging workout, and a overall memorable experience! Complacency holds no place in this business and we have learned to constantly mix things up and creatively push the limits of our events.
– How much money have you raised for you chosen charity to date?
Our company’s mission is to raise money and awareness to cure type 1 diabetes. 25% of our profits are donated directly to the Faustman Lab at MGH to find a cure. The Faustman Lab is leading the way with their clinical trials to regenerate the pancreas in diabetics! While we have donated thousands of dollars to date for this cause, what is equally as important is to raise awareness to the masses, and we can say for sure we have touched upon tens of thousands of them! Many of our followers have also donated directly to Dr. Faustman’s research as well!
