Bib #37 – Runner’s World Grand Slam 3.8 Mile Trail Run
Four races. Three Days. 26.2 total miles. A journey will culminate in Bethlehem.My girlfriends and I are just a few of the several hundred people gathered on a Friday afternoon for 3.8 trail miles in Bethelhem’s South Mountain Park. We will all complete the Grand Slam – 3.8 mile trail race, a 5k, a 10k and a half marathon over three days.
It’s over quickly; I’ve rarely run anything shorter than a half marathon all year. 3.8 miles feels like a warm-up. In a way, it is. Because just 16 hours after finishing the trail race, I will line up at the start of race #38.
The journey culminates in Bethelehem.
