For the past three years, we have hosted a free 5K in the Spring to show our appreciation for your continued business and support. This year, we decided to change things up a bit. Mostly because we wanted to have fun more often than once a year, and secondly, there are usually so many great races the weekend we choose to hold the 5K, and we want you to be able to support them. So, we decided to hold a different type of event…
It’s called the Third Thursday Scavenger Run. As you can probably gather, it’s held the third Thursday of the month (during Spring and Summer), and it’s a scavenger hunt!
Basically, you show up with you running gear on, and at about 5:45 pm, we reveal the maps of all the check-points. The check points are all locally owned shops, restaurants, and businesses in the neighborhood. You and your crew run to as many check-points as you can collecting raffle tickets from them, and then after 1 hour, you come back and we hold a raffle! The participating businesses donate to the raffle, making for some truly awesome prizes. Doesn’t it sound like a blast? It is…
We also have a vendor sponsor for the event. Whether the sponsor is Brooks, Adidas, New Balance, Asics or someone else, you will have a great time!
You can bring anyone you desire. Kids, boy friend, girl friend, husband, wife, dog, marionette, whoever you want to bring, and strollers are totally welcome.
There is no cost for this event. We do however, need you to register. You can do that before hand HERE. Or at the event. If you pre-register, you get an extra raffle ticket… Just sayin..
