The superhalfs half marathon series website opens with a question: “runners love a challenge, right?”. Damn if you are right! And for traveling runners like us, what is best if this challenge entails to visit five iconic European cities, each one hosting a IAAF labeled high quality event?
Loving half marathons, traveling and challenges, and living in one of these beautiful cities, this network got my attention.
What are we talking about?
Not for the headlines. Not for a chance to take your place on the podium. But for the fun of running. For the thrill of travel. And for the joy of saying “I did it!”
All of the SuperHalfs events are World Athletics’ Gold Label races or are run on World Athletics (IAAF) World Championship courses. They are certified by AIMS or have been awarded a 5 Star Road Race standard by European Athletics.
What’s more, several races in the SuperHalfs group have played host to World Record performances.
All runners have to do to begin their journey is sign up for any of the SuperHalfs races in 2020.
After completing the first race on the SuperHalfs calendar, participants will receive a SuperPassport (!) and after each race, an e-stamp will appear on this virtual and personalized ‘document’.
All communications will be digital and runners have 36 months to complete the series to be in line to become a SuperRunner.
A super medal is foreseen for the SuperRunners, as well as a place in the Hall of Fame of the series.
