Continuing the tradition of the VMworld Fun Run started by Duncan Epping back in 2010, VMworld 2011 will include both a fun run and new this year, a bike ride run in Las Vegas. This year, the VMworld 2011 Red Rock Canyon Bike Ride and Fun Run event will not only be for recreation but will also be for charity! The bike ride will be 23 miles and the fun run will be approximately an hour and distance will vary based on your speed. Also the event will be starting at 5am on Monday 29th, so make sure you recover from the VMworld Underground party the night before.
The registration fee for the fun run is $110 USD and bike ride is $150 USD, which in my personal opinion is quite steep. I still think the event is worthwhile and this will be a great way to get some exercise, especially since I won't be able to ride my road bike as I normally do throughout the week. If you are attending VMworld 2011 in Las Vegas, you should consider taking part in this event for a great cause. All proceeds and registrations will be donated to the Friends of Red Rock Canyon, a group of volunteers who help to preserve the Red Rock Canyon in Nevada.
Okay, so here is the challenge I pose to the VMware and virtualization community: If you would like to see me to ride the 23 miles for Friends of Red Rock Canyon, please consider sponsoring me by clicking on the link provided below. All proceeds collected will be donated to Friends of Red Rock Canyon and I will also get my employer to match the final amount.
*** Please RT, re-post and share this with your colleagues, friends and vendors! If you would like to sponsor me to ride in this event or would like to donate to a worthy cause, please consider donating. ***
