Race Report: Bermuda Triangle Challenge

Race Report: Bermuda Triangle Challenge

Argh! (RunKarlaRun.com)

Arrrgh! That was the word of the weekend when my husband, Phil, and I ran the Bermuda Triangle Challenge, as guests of Bermuda Marathon Weekend. Every January over Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend, the Bermuda Triangle Challenge dares runners to tackle three races in three days—the Front Street Mile on Friday night, the Bermuda 10K on Saturday, and the Bermuda Marathon or Bermuda Half Marathon run concurrently on Sunday.

At the 2015 races, we opted for the half challenge and had a blast in the process, dressed as pirates for the 10K and half-marathon. We even earned a spot on the race’s website and marketing materials for the feat.

Bermuda Marathon Weekend quickly became one of my favorite running events ever, thanks to the gorgeous courses, robust spectator support, and island-wide friendliness that makes Canadians look surly by comparison. Seriously. And Phil is Canadian! We even started hatching a plan to retire in Bermuda.

I’ll post the usual race report for each event individually, but thought I’d kick things off with a video montage of the Bermuda Triangle Challenge. We even have a cameo by none other than Bart Yasso. Check it out!

Many thanks to my trusty co-pirate, Phil, for both shooting the footage and editing it together. More to come…

The 2016 weekend kicks off January 15-17. Do you dare take on the Bermuda Triangle Challenge?

As mentioned above, I attended the Bermuda Triangle Challenge as a guest of the Bermuda Marathon Weekend. As always, all opinions are purely my own. I really do believe in being honest about my experiences. Seriously. For more information read my Disclosure Policy.

    One of my friends is currently working in Bermuda and I am so jealous of her pictures. I think you are on to something with hatching a plan to retire there! I love the pirate costumes!
