2017 Tour de Goose: C’est Fantastique!

Bonjour Les Lizards! The geese are running wild and French fervor fills the air as we set the stage for this summer’s Tour de Goose.

Loosely based on the Tour de France cycling race, the Tour de Goose is a multi-stage running event that takes place over multiple days and across various locations. Since team events are a key component of the Tour de Goose, a little esprit de corps is essential.

From the sheer pandemonium to the polka-dotted jerseys, silliness reigns supreme in Le Tour. You need not be fleet-footed to win points in this series. Problem-solving skills, a sense of style, or just plain luck can work to your advantage. All that’s required is a sense of humor (and perhaps a phony French accent).

This year’s committee is conspiring to bring you a few of your favorites from years’ past, along with a couple of new, equally-off-the-wall events. Event details are still being fleshed out and will be published in due course. In the meantime, please save the following dates:

Stage 1: Prologue (un-scored) 
(Thursday, July 6th at 6:00 pm)

Location: Goose run route, followed by revelry at the Goose Hollow Inn

Stage 2: Guillotine Mile, or other track event (Tuesday, July 11th at 6:00 pm)

Stages 3 & 4: Bastille Day Eve: Team “Cycling” Challenge & Marseillaise Musical Chairs

Stage 8: The Goozard Challenge & BBQ (Friday, July 21st at 6:00 pm)

In the spirit of freedom and democracy, Le Tour will be free to all! (No fees or registration required.) So lace up your sneakers, don your berets, and get ready for some revolutionary races that will leave Robespierre rolling in his grave.

Vive Le Tour!
