Did you know that Sunday, November 6 is World Run Day?
World Run Day was founded to celebrate the sport of running worldwide. The mission is to broaden and promote the health benefits of running while also encouraging runners to donate to their own favorite charity on this special day. Since 1999, over 10,000 runners have participated in World Run Day events.
On Sunday, November 6, RunVermont and SkiRack invite you celebrate World Run Day with a FREE, fun, relaxed 5k run (NOT a race) through downtown Burlington, followed by bagels and coffee and the opportunity to win some great stuff, including running gear, race entries and even an opportunity to bypass the KBVCM relay lottery process.*
We’ll meet at SkiRack at 9:00am and take off along this course. Everyone is welcome! Bring the kids, push a stroller, run fast or run slow. This is truly all about coming together to celebrate running, getting to know a few new faces and having fun.
Visit the Facebook event page to RSVP (not required, it will just give us a sense of how many bagels to buy), and please spread the word to your friends!
*Speaking of GIVEAWAYS, today is Thursday, so of course we’ve got something we want to give you! Today we’re giving away a KBVCM coffee tumbler in your choice or colors:
This 16oz tumbler is BPA free and perfect for all your warm winter beverages.
Tell us what about your favorite Halloween costume…either one you wore yourself or one you saw and loved.
