Introducing Black Sheep Run, the first team we are recognizing as part of our Run Club of the Month Spotlight. Black Sheep Run has over 1,000 members spread across the entire U.S., and they love to participate regularly at our Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series events. Some of their members have participated in Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series events for over two decades, and most of their members are multi-year Heavy Medal Hall of Famers!
The team started as an off shoot of the original Rock ‘n’ Roll SA2LV (San Antonio to Las Vegas) group that completed Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio in the morning, and then flew to Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas for the nighttime event. Yes, completing both races in the same day! Their group is all-inclusive, and they love runners and walkers of all ages. Currently their youngest member is 13, and their oldest are in their 60s.
How did this team grow so big? Simply put, they don’t take themselves too seriously and are always willing to help others on the course when they are having a tough time. If you’ve experienced a Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series event before it’s likely that you’ve seen this crazy bunch. Their team can always be found at the start line taking fun photos and having a great time with their fellow black sheep, like Barefoot Elvis.
