How is it already May?! Scratch that, how is May already almost over?! Wow. Time has been zipping by here for Team Run Bum. We've had crazy busy season, and we realize there might have been a couple messages here and there that we might have missed. Sorry, fam.🥴 We thought it might be helpful to drop in with a little update every now and then on here to share what we're working on. We like to keep y'all in the loop! Sooo without further ado...
Forgotten Florida goes on sale May 30th!
We know we [accidentally] teased you guys a bit with the initial registration opening, but we closed it back up briefly when we realized we had a couple small i's to dot and t's to cross. We're stoked to be bringing you back this epic event in 2023. Click watch on ultrasignup to get alerts on when registration is live and reaching capacity: Forgotten Florida 100 Mile / 45 Mile / 15 Mile - February 4, 2023 (ultrasignup.com)

"Do you have any leftover swag?"
This is probably the number one question we get post-race. Especially since we really started upping our game with the swag designs, amiright? Almost always, we give our leftover race swag to our superheroes aka volunteers. If we do have swag leftover, we pack it up and put it into storage, and with our small team, we simply do not have the time or resources to ship swag out.
HOWEVER.... we hear you! This summer we are planning to open a pop-up shop here on our website for our warehouse cleanout! What will we have? Guess you'll just have to come and see! First come, first served. We'll announce the date here, on socials, and via email.
UTE info coming out!
All you UTE runners have waited so very patiently for the complete route details, race manuals, cutoffs, etc. And guess what? Now that we finally wrapped up our busiest race season of all time, we're finally getting this info out to you! It's about dang time! We will be perfecting all of the details over the coming weeks, and will email all participants when everything is ready for you to pour over with your fine tooth ultra combs, cool? We're really stoked for this year. It's been a long time coming, and it's gonna be a helluva weekend! LFG!
Yo, how do I claim my free entry?
We've had a ton of vols step up this season, lots of contest winners, and quite a few deferrals from Shadows & Ute inquiring about comped entries. If you are a vol, check your email for the link to submit your hours. If you won an entry - send us an email with your ultrasignup email address. In almost all cases, we will place a credit in your account that will make the race you requested free. HOWEVER, YOU STILL NEED TO REGISTER VIA ULTRASIGNUP FOR THIS TO WORK! The race will simply be free at checkout. (Just emailing us to request entry does not sign you up for the race, though we really wish it did because that would for sure be easier on everyone!) If you were given a free race or earned one from us and Ultrasignup is asking you to pay, just shoot us an email and we will get it straightened out: firstname.lastname@example.org
Sky to Summit - This one's gonna be epic.
Everyone's favorite Fall race is back for year 11 in beautiful Sky Valley, Ga! This year the Run Bum Team is introducing a brand new 100k to the mix. More miles, more smiles -- that's how it works, right? Registrations are already pouring in, and this year is shaping up to be super competitive... and super fun. Most all of our races sellout, and we expect the same for all three Sky to Summit events. Snag your spot today, and you too can be trail partying on top of a mountain like these fine folks!👇 All the details>> Georgia Sky to Summit - November 5 - 6, 2022 (ultrasignup.com)
That's a wrap for today! We'll check back in with you guys soon. Please tune into our socials, and tag us in your adventures. We always love to hear from you! - Team Run Bum
