Wednesdays at Mad Fox Brewing - Falls Church
This week: We are going to do our first joint event with Potomac River Running on October 21. A representative from New Balance is going to be on hand to showcase some of their products and offer test runs of some shoes within their line-up. All who are interested are encouraged to come a little earlier to allow for time to exchange your shoes for the demos. Potomac River will be giving out discount vouchers for New Balance shoes for those interested in a demo run.
The Run Club is open to all who enjoy running or walking and drinking craft beer (not necessarily in that order!). The Run Club is also open to all runners and all walkers at all paces; however, you must be 21+ to drink. Dogs are welcome, but they must remain on the patio after the group run.
Check-in/Sign-in is at 6:15pm with the run starting at 6:30pm. You can run or walk as much or as little as you would like. We will mark a course for 3 and 5 miles and will be running on the WOD Trail which is .2 miles from the restaurant. Afterward, join us for drinks at the Brewpub.
Everyone who participates will be given a Run Club card. Due to the brevity of the fall running season, we are making the rewards associated with participation realistically achievable. Basically the rules are as follows:
- 1 punch per run regardless of distance,
- 5 punches and you can redeem for a free run-shirt or MF gift card,
- Run shirts are being made and will be for sale in a couple of weeks. Wear your shirt for each run and win free stuff and get an 1/2 off an appetizer of your choice that evening. Until we have Run Club shirts, showing your Run Club card will achieve the same result.
There will be more to follow as the club matures and we form relationships with local running shops, etc. We are working this out as we go. Our goal is to have fun and I am so pleased that you have shown an interest in coming out to run or walk...and share in the love of excellent craft beer!
