Most races are pretty similar: a distance, a time to start, sometimes costume. We know the drill. So I feel like I have to share this set of races which mixes Vegas with a 5K. You can race hard or just play and walk around. What a fun idea.
I won’t be joining either because I’ll be working until 8am (yes an overnight) that day so it would be a little tight to make it on time not to mention I’ll be dreaming of crashing in my bed by then. But it does look like something fun to do with friends.
Dates: Dec. 10, 2011 at Jackson Park (Hendersonville, NC)
and Dec. 17, 2011 at Fletcher Park, Fletcher, NC
Registration DAY OF ONLY @ 7:30AM!
Race @ 8:30am
How it works:
You’ll receive a playing card at registration, and a card at midway. You can take one more card at the finish if you so choose. The object is to hit 21. Number cards are worth their face value. Jacks, queens, & kings are worth 10, & aces can be used as 1 or 11. However many entries we have determines the jackpot, which will be given away in Foot Rx Gift Certificates. If there are multiple winners, we will split the pot amongst the winners. Your finishing place does not matter in this race, so go as fast or as slow as you like!
