Work off that Turkey dinner at the FREE Black Friday 5k

bf5k1.png

Come work off that awesome Thanksgiving feast at the 1st ever Black Friday 5k.  We all need a little motivation to get moving the day after a holiday, and this is your perfect chance.  Come join many Chicago Now Bloggers and participate in the 5k.  Bring everyone you're grateful for to join you on the run.  We want everyone to participate.

Did I mention that this was a FREE 5k as well?  And it is, but in the Thanksgiving and holiday spirited we wanted to reach out to the community and give back, so we are asking that you dig into your pantry and closet and bring the following 3 items:

1) A canned food item for the Greater Chicago Food Depository
2) An old race t-shirt for St. Vincent DePaul
3) Gently worn shoes for Share your Souls

Your canned food item even gets you 10% off your Black Friday Purchase at Fleet Feet sports!

Here are a few more minor details:
  
When: Black Friday! November 26th at 3:00pm is "check in" Race starts at 3:30

Where: Fleet Feet Pipers Alley at 1620 N. Wells

After Party: Casey Moran's in Wrigleyville, for all non runners come join for $1 beer and free appetizers!

This idea to invite the community to come together has turned into a huge movement. So we hope you can make it out to the inaugural Black Friday 5k.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

And of course, have a fun and fit day, Chicago.
