The run is <5 kilometers long and will begin at 21st and Strand heading west to 25th street, loop around to Mechanic Street, and head back east to 21st street, making 3 laps. Walking and/or Running is permitted as this is a non-competitive, non-timed event! JUST HAVE FUN, GET SOME EXERCISE, AND DRINK SOME BEER.
Packet pickup: Friday, Jan 25th @ Beerfoot Beach Bar located at 2816 Ave R 1/2 from 5pm to 8pm night.
WARNING: Crazy outfits/Team Uniforms are EXTREMELY encouraged. The more OUTRAGEOUS, the better! People in normal, boring clothes will be punished with evil stares and glares for the rest of their lives.
After the run, jaunt over to any official festival beer booth (yellow & black signage) and redeem your bib ticket for a refreshing libation. Then head to the Trolley Station balcony located on Strand between 20th & 21st where you can tantalize the revelers to perform tricks for beads (remember this access is for the first 300 registrants only, so what are you waiting for?) !!
