What is an Adventure Run you ask? Adventure Runs are hosted by Road Runner Sports stores and are a scavenger hunt style fun run. At the start of the run, a map is revealed on a board (or sent to your email if you pre-registered) and you are sent on your way. Your goal is to get to as many checkpoints and get back to the store in an hour. Each checkpoint gives you raffle tickets to be used in the drawings once the run is over. At some checkpoints you simply get tickets for arriving and some have fun little tasks to complete (such as burpees, planks, etc). There are some pretty awesome prizes to be won and the best part is that Adventure Runs are FREE!
Tonight's theme was PIRATES! ARRRRRRRRG! It was time to get dressed and collect our booty....or raffle tickets.
Our final check point was Jamba Juice. Here we had to select a slip of paper and try whatever juice was on the slip. I had a mango tango themed drink, and I must say, it was rather tasty. That was yummy way to earn some tickets for sure! WE almost didn't head out to Jamba Juice because we weren't sure if we would have enough time to get back to Road Runner Sports to get our tickets ready, - I am so glad that we did!
As a bonus, code FUNNERRUNNER will save you $10 off of the half marathon and $5 off the 5K (any location)! I personally cannot wait for the Atlanta race, and hope to see you there too!
