Who doesn’t love saving money on their races?!
Now available here on MRG: a listing of discount codes for Michigan races. Keep reading to see the codes, and also bookmark this new resource page here » More codes will be added in coming weeks and months.
I wanted to let you all know about this new resource by listing the codes I have so far. Thanks to the following races for generously offering race discount codes to Michigan Runner Girl readers. Please be sure to take advantage of these special savings!**
Race directors: If you are interested in offering a discount code — and want to increase your race registration numbers! — please contact MRG at michiganrunnergirl [at] gmail [dot] com to learn more about how we can partner and encourage our fellow Michigan runners to enjoy our state’s thriving race scene.
**Please note the dates during which these race discounts are offered; in some cases these codes are good leading up to race day, while others are for a specific time period.
The Race: The Winter Warriors Series, a wintry mix of races held in Mt. Pleasant, Mich. throughout winter each year, is for those of us who, as founder Ryan Hackett puts it, “like to train and race outside during the tough winter months.” The race series includes: The Snowmans Half/10K/5K on Jan. 24; The IceCube Half/10K/5K on Feb. 14; and the Mud Dogs Half/10K/5K on March 13. This series of three winter races in Mt. Pleasant, Mich. can be done separately or, if you’re feeling especially warrior-ish, as a package of races.
The Discount: Ready to become a winter warrior? You can sign up for one of three race packages here. Or, register for just one. Use the code MRGwarriors for $5 off individual races and $10 off a multi-race package. Register here»
