Run to Escape Series: Mission Mt. Olympus

Disclaimer: I received an entry to the Run to Escape Series: Mission Mt Olympus to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review, find, and write race reviews!

I have done a TON of virtual races since I began my running journey in 2013.

HOWEVER, RTE’s Mission Mt. Olympus is something else…it is a virtual experience!

Now, let me explain what I mean by that.

A normal race, virtual or otherwise, is typically for one run or one distance.

RTE’s experience is not.

It is six runs at varying distances and each run comes with it’s own unique challenge.

The overall objective of this series is to help Atalanta (the Greek Goddess of Running) secure a spot in the Pantheon by solving individual puzzles that the other gods have left behind.

Kind of like the challenges from “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” except without the two-faced guy (it does still have a three-headed dog around, though).

You will receive audio clues from the gods themselves through the Runkeeper app and a puzzle to solve after you’ve done your run via e-mail.

BONUS: As part of your registration, you will be entered to win weekly giveaways (i.e. Aftershokz and Knockaround sunglasses)!

Apollo and I in our Knockaround sunnies!

I LOVE puzzles and riddles, so this experience was right up my alley.

I could not wait to get through my run to see what the gods had deemed too hard for a mere mortal to solve. It was extremely motivating but, more importantly, FUN!

Athena thinks she is SO smart but, once I was on the run, it was GAME OVER!

While you don’t get a medal or a t-shirt for this experience, as you would for a virtual race, you get something even better.

You get multiple runs that break up the monotonous training cycle and an invite to the Pantheon Party (I won’t spoil it for you, but it is more, dare I say better, than a free banana).

Just me hanging out on Mt. Olympus!

Moral of the story?

If you are looking for some fun on the run while also challenging your brain, sign up for this experience.

Otherwise, we may just have another Greek tragedy on our hands.

Use the code “BIBRAVE10” for 10% off registration and tell Hermes that I sent you!
