Here is why:
Last year I ran the Color Me Rad 5k at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. It was jam packed full of people! I mean JAM PACKED!
Then in April I ran Color Me Rad 5k in Raleigh at Walnut Creek. I was shocked that as HUGE as Raleigh is, how little the event was. It was weird not seeing a lot of people at this run.
So when I got the email that Run or Dye was canceled, I wasnt upset or shocked. It just seems odd that being that Raleigh is a large city that more people wouldnt have registered. BUT also Run or Dye is new to the area and people probably didnt know about it and it probably wasnt advertised. I live 2 1/2 hours away from Raleigh, so I cant say for sure.
But I did chose to donate my money to charity and get my swag! I havent heard anything about the free socks, but thats ok. Maybe they will come closer next year and I'll register again!
