Planning a fun run

Reprinted with permission of the San Diego Miata Club

  • Select your favorite roads and/or destination. 
  • Coordinate a date with the Event Coordinator 
  • Do a “pre-run” with the following things in mind: 
  1. Select a convenient meeting place with ample parking, easy access in and out, and restrooms. 
  2. If needed; depending on the time of the run, look for restaurants that can accommodate a large group. (It’s a good idea to talk to the manager to let them know what you have in mind and when…maybe they can work out a special deal for the group.) 
  3. Look for safe places to “queue up” in case the group gets split up by lights or traffic. 
  4. Have we mentioned the importance of restrooms? 
  • On or before the 15th of the month prior to your run, send a brief written description for the club newsletter that includes at least the following details: 
  1. General location of where you’re taking us 
  2. Start time and place 
  3. End location and approximate length of time the run will take 
  4. Type of restaurant and approximate amount of money we should plan on bringing with us or whether to pack a lunch 
  5. Whether the run will be canceled in case of rain. 
  6. Ask for RSVPs if needed for the restaurant or other accommodations. 
  • Prepare and make sufficient copies of written directions to hand out to those in attendance. (Use large type for reading ease.) 
  • Closer to the date, make contact with the restaurant or others that may need to prepare for our arrival. 

A few other suggestions: 
It’s helpful if you take along someone to help you make notes on your “pre-run” so you can write up directions, mileage odometer readings, and road signs to follow. 
For Miata’s sake, avoid dirt roads! 
Consider combining the run with an activity like a wine tour, museum, etc.
