Run to Apocolypse Virtual Run
Friday, December 21, 2012
The "End of the World Race"! We couldn't let another milestone date pass without a race to commemorate it, so we bring you the Run to Apocolypse Virtual Run. This virtual race is unique in that you get to choose which distance you run (minimum of 1 mile), submit your results below by midnight on Friday, and then we'll mail you a medal. This may be your last race if the world truly ends this Friday, so make it count!
A little history: The story started with claims that Nibiru, a supposed planet discovered by the Sumerians, is headed toward Earth. This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003, but when nothing happened the doomsday date was moved forward to December 2012 and linked to the end of one of the cycles in the ancient Mayan calendar at the winter solstice in 2012 -- hence the predicted doomsday date of December 21, 2012. This may be your last race if the world truly ends this Friday, so make it count!
