Go for a run of course...

Fleet Feet Sports has joined the fun for the Inaugural FREE Black Friday 5K Fun Run for Charity!

The Details
Who: You, your friends, family and people you meet on the street!
What: the Inaugural FREE Black Friday 5K Fun Run for Charity with Fleet Feet Sports!
When: Friday, November 26th, "check in" is at 3pm. The run starts at 3:30pm!
Where: Meet at The Piper Alley Fleet Feet Sports location (1620 N. Wells). The course will have you head north along the running path towards Fullerton Ave and return. Maps will be provided on the day of the event but here's a rough map of the course (subject to change)!


This is FREE, but we do ask that you:

  1. Bring a can of Food for the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Your Can of food will also get you an additional 10% your Black Friday Purchase at Fleet Feet Sports!!!
  2. Bring a old race t-shirt for St Vincent DePaul
  3. Bring gentle used shoes for Share Your Soles

Pre and Post Race:
A variety of refreshments will be provided to participants while supplies last ie Water and Gatorade. Beer will be provided to those over the age of 21. Nothing says beer after a good run!

This is a 5K Fun Run. There will not be a waiver for this event. All traffic laws must be obeyed.

Post run, we'll be heading to Casey Moran's for more Food Drive Fun and an After Party.

Hate running like me??? It's still cool to come join the fun at Casey Moran's Bar in Wrigleyville from 4:30-7:00 and if you bring a food donation they'll hook you up with free appetizers, $1 Corona's, $3 Domestic's, $4 Svedka drinks, $5 Bombs. MMMM Jager Bomb after a run...if you have a new F-ing Haircut it's an added bonus.

If you have any questions, comment and I'll get you the answers as fast as I can! Hope to see you there!
