    Hey all, I'm not sure if this is the place to post this, so mods feel free to move to a more appropriate place. We have been running "biathlon" type events here in Kentucky over the past year. We did 3 in 2017; March, September and November, all at Rockcastle Shooting Center near Park City.

    We are planning more for 2018, one of which will be at Rockcastle Shooting Center in March. Registration went live yesterday and tickets for the 5K sold out in about 11 minutes, and they are compiling a waiting list. I believe there are still some 10K spots open. https://www.facebook.com/events/1694526563922793/

    Another event will be the Heartbreak 5/10K at Bluegrass Sportsmans League in Wilmore, just south of Lexington. Registration goes hot later today. https://www.facebook.com/events/1288981797874883/

    Here are a few links to videos of past events.

    Somebody was just asking me if there will be other events in Kentucky in 2018. Well, this was just announced today:

    The Run for Your Life Zombie 10K Run N Gun
    Saturday, November 3, 2018 at 8 AM - 6 PM CDT
    Rockcastle Shooting Center
    585 Park Mammoth Rd
    Park City, Kentucky 42160
    https://www.facebook.com/events/555941334757913/

    So if February or March 2018 was not enough time for you to prepare, now you have an attainable goal to shoot for; you have 11 months to train. Get going!
    Sorry for those not on Facebook, but there are no websites for these events. Unfortunately, Facebook is where it's at. Once registration opens, it will be listed on Practiscore.

    Same with me, almost had heart failure after the first video,... I couldn't make it very far in the second without a major rest.
    That's definitely for younger/more physically fit people than us.:(

    Brilliantly conceived!
    Sadly, there does not appear to be a "Walker" phase; I just got new tennis balls for mine.
    :D

    I would love to do this... I may have to sign up. In the process already of weight training/running. I haven't done anything like this before.

    You don't have to be an Olympic athlete to do this! Not many people will be able to run 100% of the entire distance(s). I'm a grandpa and I have done three of these events in 2017, and I know I will be hiking parts and jogging parts. Just a word of encouragement for those who don't think they are in good enough shape!

    Revere's Riders, a 501c3 non-profit (https://www.reveresriders.org/) is partnering with the Feb 3, 2018 Heartbreak Run & Gun in two ways. First, Revere's Riders will be providing a brick (500 rounds) of free .22 LR ammo for all youth (under 18) who register for and run in either the 5K or 10K. They must shoot a 22 rimfire and use the provided ammo. If they complete the race, they get to keep any remaining ammo they did not shoot during the race. Second, Revere's Riders will be awarding the coveted XI Virginia Regiment Morgan's Rifle Corps patch and certificate to all shooters who pass "Morgan's Test", which is at Stage 1 and involves a using a centerfire rifle to make a single, cold bore, unsupported shot on a 6" steel target at 250 yards.
