Texas Town Hosting 0.5k for Lazy People
The good people of Boerne, Texas are hosting 'The Running Event for the Rest of Us'. on May 5.
Participants get a beer at each end of the "race", there's a hydration station with coffee and donuts at the halfway point (also the designated smoking area), and everyone gets a participation trophy. Sounds amazing! Well, that's what everyone else thought too. The race is sold out.
UPDATE 4/18/18 - WE ARE SOLD OUT.
I am sorry to say that the first annual Boerne 0.5k is sold out. Really. We had no idea that we would have this money people sign up and we are at capacity for our city park permit, our insurance policy and the number of people that the Dodging Duck and Cibolo Creek Brewing Company can comfortably handle. We will certainly do it again in 2019 and we'll be exploring ways in which we can expand the capacity of the event. Thank you for your support - I guess being sold out is a good problem to have.
The tongue-in-cheek event benefits Blessings in a Backpack, a charitable group fighting childhood hunger.
