WHAT'S WITH THE NAME JANUS AND HOW DOES THIS EVENT WORK?

January is named in honor of the Roman deity Janus. Janus represented transitions and entryways, among other things.  As we transition out of a most challenging 2020, we're optimistically focused on the year ahead.  During January, participants can run or walk a half marathon, 10K or 5K, then post their results and photos online.  Registration includes a bib number and medallion, with t-shirts for an additional purchase.


LOCATION

Anywhere! Trail, road, cross country style – your choice. Preferably outdoors, but your treadmill works, too.


DISTANCES

Half Marathon, 10K, 5K


Run (or walk) your chosen distance, at your own pace, whenever and wherever you’d like. The goal of this event is to energize and applaud one another as we engage in physical activity and take care of ourselves, in whatever way that looks like for you. You can run, walk, jog, skip, stop and smell flowers -- it's all good!


TIME FRAMES
