41 Reasons to Run The Mountain Goat

Need some encouragement?  We will be posting 41 amazing reasons to run the Mountain Goat between now and race day!  Keep checking our site every week for the newest reasons.

The first one is a reminder that registering now is great motivation to get moving and get training! You still have 15 weeks to prepare! That’s a TON of time to get in great shape to be ready to tackle those hills.

Have you SEEN this year’s T-shirt? It’s amazing! Don’t miss out on this fantastic race swag for 2019. Register for the 41st annual Dunn Tire Mountain Goat Run to claim your long-sleeve tech shirt, which you’ll want to wear as much as possible – because it looks great and it’s easier than wearing your medal for bragging rights.

Yes, it’s snowy out there but we’re pretty sure it will NOT be snowing on May 5 for the 41st running of the Dunn Tire Mountain Goat Run. So just think of those 10 warm, sunny miles when you begin or continue your training this week.

Need a last minute gift for your Valentine? How about a Bib for the 41st Annual Mountain Goat! You and your Valentine can train AND cross the finish line together! How romantic!

The Goat is iconic. It’s 10 miles, like other legendary races: The Army 10 Miler, The Cherry Blossom 10 Mile, The Virginia 10 Miler, The Broad St Run, Soldier Field 10 Miler. Run the famous Goat, where just like Cheers, everyone knows your name! (Because your name will be printed on your bib!)

Bagels?! Did you know that all runners will have access to delish treats when they cross the finish line? Check out our Post-Race Party Page for more details!
