I was thinking, that this challenge is now over half done, it may be time to think about Race for your City 2. My thought on this would be to have less teams with more team members to have a more balanced challenge.
I was thinking, lets find cities with interesting landmarks and use that city as your sponsor city. As the challenge progresses, we can all learn more about that landmark. I was thinking maybe 50 runners per landmark/city and maybe 12 cities with a focus on 2 landmark/cities per month. If there is a landmark that you have visited and want to run for it, post a comment here.
1) New York City – Statue of Liberty
2) France – Eiffel Tower
3) Arizona – Grand Canyon
4) Colorado – 14’ers
5) Florida – Disney World
Or we could do the challenge by region:
US: West – Mountain (13 states) – WA, OR, CA, AK, HI, AZ, NM, CO, UT, NV, WY, ID, MT
US: Mid West –North Central (12 states) – MO, KS, IA, NE, MN, SD, ND, OH, IN, IL, WI, MI
US: South – South Central (8 states) – TX, OK, AR, LA, MS, AL, TN, KY
US: South Atlantic (9 states) – FL, GA, SC, NC, VA, WV, DC, MD, DE
US: NorthEast (9 states) – PA, NJ, NY, CT, RI, MA, VT, ME, NH
I don’t get out much, so I would need a lot of help finding a great list of landmarks to race for. The number 12 isn’t set in stone, we can have more or less.
If anyone thinks this is a good thought for race for your city 2. Let me know and we can start a list of landmarks/cities and start a poll for which ones we should have. Maybe we can have some kind of random number generator to make teams completely random.
This is all just a thought.
