Fun Runs & Walks

Everun on a Cloud (10)?
A Saucony Partnered All-Paces Run*
Tuesday, May 30th
6pm run starts/5:45pm check-in begins

Experience the running-on-a-cloud-like-feeling of the new Saucony Ride 10 shoes (or the also very cool Hurricane or Triumph) on a wonderful waterfront route with the friendliest, most welcoming group.

Tickets to Ride – Demo a pair of the new Saucony Ride 10 (or Triumph or Hurricane) and earn a ticket for the drawing for a $100 Ticket Master gift card! Donate a relatively clean, still-has-some-life-in-it shoe that will be passed on to a good cause and you can earn an additional ticket.
Inspired by the NBA Play Offs, give us your best shot in the 10 balls in 10 seconds hoop challenge. Sweet Saucony caps for the winners.
You are invited to join us immediately following the run (well, be sure to turn the demo shoes back in at the store first) at nearby Stone’s Throw Brewery. We’ll be bringing some pizza to share. Beer and rootbeer available for purchase at the Brewery.

*Weekly Tuesday night All-Paces Runs are 20 minutes out and 20 minutes back, along waterfront trails and paths. Participants are divided into groups by pace, ranging from run/walk to 7-8 minute miles. Starts and finishes at the store.

Sorry, but these are people only events. No doggies.

Run to Welcome Back Summer!
A Brooks sponsored All-Paces Event*
Tuesday, June 20th
6pm run starts/5:45pm check-in

Everyone is invited to this celebratory solstice time run with some post-run frolicking. Watch out for the squirt guns as you dodge about in a pair of demo Brooks shoes. And Sample different sport hydration before the run and refuel afterward with strawberry shortcake!

Brooks rep. Christa will be here with Glycerin 15, Adrenaline GTS 17 and Ghost 9 demo shoes.

Everyone will be eligible for the raffle for store gift certificates and other great prizes.

Get your photo snapped with the Brooks Yeti at the Brooks Beach.

Also, that evening we’ll be joined on the run by a group going on the ultimate summer road trip…for an incredibly worthy cause. Nico, Sadie, Bailee and Charlie are swinging through town on their 48 state, 8 week journey with the collective running goal of 1,600 miles. They hope to spark discussion about Alzheimer’s disease and to raise money for the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund. Check out their Running Road Trip for more information – www.therunningroadtrip.org.

Runnin’ in “Nature’s Gym”
A Merrell partnered All-Paces Event*
Tuesday, June 27th
6pm run starts/5:45pm check-in

Hit the trail in a pair of Merrell Agility Peak demo shoes (supplies limited so if you hope to get a pair in your size, come early.) Merrell rep. Kayla will also have some Bare Access Flex for those who like a barefoot-like, minimal shoe.

  • We’ll do a little forest bathing on the run with an out and back Interurban Trail route instead of our usual waterfront route.
  • “How well do you know your local trails” game beforehand.
  • Raffle prizes, giveaways and light drinks and eats afterward.
  • Picky Bar ambassador Colin will also be sharing Picky Bar samples before and after the run!
