dailymile meetup

posted over 8 years ago | Report

Never too early to plan, haha.

I'd love to get a meetup together. It could be the night before , the morning of, afternoon after....expo, restaurant, starting line, doesn't matter! I think it would be a fun opportunity to meet each other.

So that said, throw in any ideas or suggestions you may have! Anyone familiar with the area?

  • I have never run this race so I'll check back to see about thoughts/ideas. I am staying one night (Saturday) and expect to leave Sunday afternoon after the race.

  • Brendan, you've decided to run the VCM? That's great!

    I'll probably go to the Expo to pick up my stuff on Friday night, but could rearrange that if there was a meet up at the Expo on Saturday. Start line also works for me!

    I live 40 miles northeast of Burlington (husband works in B'ton) so know the city fairly well. Can certainly help with choosing a good venue for meeting up no matter when we do it.

  • You guys are killing me - I've run VCM each of the past two years, but am skipping this year due to the baby arrival. It's a great race in a fantastic town - if I could pick my ideal city, it would be Burlington. I know of several others who are planning on running it.

  • This is my first marathon and I'm getting so excited! I'd love to meet some fellow Dailymilers. I'll be driving up early on Saturday and staying Saturday and Sunday nights. I wanted to spend a little extra time since I've never been to Burlington before.

    My hubby and I will be there! Hoping to convince him to drive up on Friday night from Beantown. Saturday meet up sounds good!

    I live in upstate NY, near Saratoga Springs. We're driving Fri night and will be camping at Little River State Park. Anyhow, let me know when and where to meet up -- it will be great to get a group photo taken.

    Looks like a mix bag - I figured we would optimize all runners for a Sunday AM meetup in Battery Park before the race starts - maybe some others who have run it would suggest. Looks like the Totem Pole might be a recognizable landmark but I am unfamiliar with the area. If others would like to do something more casual in a different setting I know there was some discussion about Saturday or Sunday after the race. I'll be headed back to Maine Sunday. Throw out some ideas and let's get it going/organized.
