Run or Dye Ventura

I know this is a long way out, but there is a Groupon available right now for Run or Dye Ventura. A few of us from this group did the Run or Dye in Santa Barbara and it was a blast. Once it gets closer we can organize a place to meet before the race to run together and grab lunch after. This is a really fun race for both runners and walkers alike!

Here is the Groupon link:

The Groupon price is $22 while the regular price is $45.

    Wow ladies - so sorry to hear that the race was so poorly put together. :( No fault of any of yours! I hope that you will try this again with the group some time. We have done this in the past and it's worked very well. I think a major issue is the actual race organizers. It sounds like they were not prepared for the turn out, which is just weird. Maybe next time you can meet at a local store or somewhere near and then carpool so you can find each other easier. Anywho, way to give it a shot and congrats to you all!!!

    The race was chaotic and I didn't run with anyone from our group, which was sad because I wanted to hang out with you ladies! Next time we should have a more concrete meeting location/time! I don't think this race was worth the regular ticket price ($57) but for the $22 Groupon deal it was a fun and worthwhile way to spend a morning.

      I totally agree !!!! When I got there the line for the bus was UNREAL. One girl said she was waiting in line for over an hour and only three buses had come by to pick people up. my husband and I didn't even get on a bus. we walk to the end of the line and when we heard how long people have been waiting we just went home. I have never in my life seen such an unorganized event. Infact, I recorded myself walking back down the line and I'm going to send it to the organizers to show them how absolutely ridiculous it was.

    I'd highly recommend going to the packet pick up in Ventura tomorrow. For the Run or Dye in Santa Barbara, the morning-of packet pick up was really insane.

    I'm going to run this on my own and at my own pace. Have fun.

      We could still all start together if you'd like to. I'm sure we will all spread out to some degree once the race gets underway whether we like it or not.

    Are we running as a team? I was looking at the site and it lets you create a team or join a team when registering.

    • Ruslana

      I am not sure what the difference between the two would be, but I'm open to a team run!

      November 11, 2013

    • Catherine R.

      Yeah. I didn't set up a team since I was using the groupon.

  • Ruslana

    I would love to do this! I've never done any races, but I think I can do a 5K...

    • Catherine R.

      This is a perfect first 5k! Tons of fun, no pressure (it's not timed), and people of all ability levels.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
