Have you ever dreamed of riding in the Tour de France? Are you a runner? Come run the Tour de Run and experience the thrill of a stage race next summer in your own backyard! The Tour de Run is an exciting new concept in the running world based on the incredibly exciting stage format seen in the grand cycling tours of Europe. Although the Tour de Run will be fast and competitive at the front of the race, the majority of participants will be runners of all ages and abilities. The race will begin with the first stage on the evening of July 13, 2012. Stages 2 and 3 will be run in the morning and early afternoon of Saturday the 14th. Between stages it will become one big party featuring a race expo with vendor booths, giveaways, music and much more! Placing is determined by cumulative time. As many of the awards will be given to teams, be sure to form teams with family, friends, teammates and co-workers! Oh, and did we mention the leader after each stage will get to wear the yellow jersey?!
