AMR Trains #29: Running Races One Year into Pandemic

While it's still unclear when and how a major marathon will happen, smaller running races are blooming all over the country.

Dimity checks in with two race directors in two states: John Mortimer, founder of Millenium Running in Bedford, New Hampshire, and Karen Lechtenberg, a race director of five events and a full-time teacher in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

The three discuss:
—What March 2020 felt like—and how Cinco de Mayo became Cinco de Julio
—Best practices for race day from a race director and runner's perspective;
—The silver linings that COVID-19 brought to road racing (PR's galore!);

One response to “AMR Trains #29: Running Races One Year into Pandemic

  1. John Mortimer, Karen Lechtenberg and other race directors who have reinvented in-person racing this past year should be Persons of the Year! I live in south-central Massachusetts, a state that prohibits road racing until essentially everything is back to normal (keep that in mind re: Boston in October). I have driven 1.5 hours or more each way to participate in three Millennium Running events in New Hampshire, and they are awesome! I’ll be back for several more this year. I actually prefer the two-people-every-10-seconds starts because there’s a lot less weaving through the pack. They do an incredible job making each runner feel special and keeping that festive atmosphere that we go to races for. Thanks for having John and Karen on the podcast to spread the word that road races – even with 1,000 or so people- can be low risk.
