  1. This actually looks pretty good, I may have to sign up, but do you know if it’s international? Living in the UK does have its setbacks, so I’m just wondering if that’s possible.

    It’ll give me a reason to get a few more running days in, and that’s never a bad thing!

  2. I signed up for the entire series with 5k distances. I am positive I am running a 5k in February. For the later races, if I decide to change distances, will that be allowed? I am really enjoying the 13 in 2013. 1 race completed, 12 to go!

    1. Hi Beka. Do you mean counting the one run as 2 of your 13? Sorry if I’m misunderstanding. Of course it’s totally up to you but the ultimate goal is to actually run 13 races. Double dipping will only be 12 in the end right? The challenge is about the run, fun, motivation to stay active, and commitment :)

    1. I have a 20 miler and somehow I will turn part of it into my Tackle the Miles. I’m rotating short distances with practicing eating (for endurance) so maybe one of the “laps” will be my virtual portion. It won’t go toward my goal of 13 trail races but it will be fun anyway. Besides I can’t not run my first time hosting a virtual :)

  3. I’ve signed up! I’m excited! But I have a question! It says that “Official race bibs will be available before 1/30”. Are those emailed to us or are they located somewhere that I’m not seeing?

  4. This is my 3rd race ever I am starting to get the Running Bug THANKS so much for this opportunity .I did my run on 2/3 while watching Super Bowl and did it in 38:45
