H E L L O R E N E G A D E S !
On Sunday, we heard over and over again from runners and guests that this was the best and most challenging Renegade Run ever, and that there was an incredible positive vibe in the air all day long. Thank you for that feedback, we couldn’t agree more – the day was just perfect! Maybe it was the beautiful weather at scenic Wompatuck, or the dynamic First Class Band with Concetta pumping out some killer tunes. The high energy performance from Hingham High School’s Dance Team, or the delicious treats from our food trucks, sponsor samples or that awesome cold brew from our beer tent. Perhaps it was the laughter of kids on the Mini Renegade course and the inflatable supervised by the US Army, or the pride of the families and teams coming together to support a cure for type 1 diabetes – or it could have been the excitement from all of runners who crossed the finish line proud to put that awesome medal around their necks. We are guessing it’s all of these elements that added to the incredible event! Thank you for being part of the story and the success of the day.
We had a great time designing the course for our Renegades and you crushed it! We worked hard to bring you 3 new challenges, the Ranger Crawl, Tarzan Swing and the Shimmy Shake – you didn’t disappoint, challenging yourself to trounce them and the 25 other obstacles we threw at you. The Tire Roll, Superman Wall, Rock Wall, Renegade Hoist, Monkey Bars, Rings, the terrain, Prospect Hill, Cargo Climb and more! We were impressed with your determination to conquer them all. Our photos have captured many of you conquering the course!
The overwhelmingly positive feedback is certainly a wonderful recognition for the months of work and planning behind it. But truth be told, that praise would not be earned without our volunteers, sponsors, and supporters, for helping to bring our mission to a new level. Without them the success of Renegade Run would not have been possible.
