novelty run
  • Details from event's RunSignUp.com listing:

    Frederick County Parks and Recreation is once again partnering with Runners' Retreat to bring a fun twist to one of their Thursday evening group runs! Embark on an exhilarating adventure through the charming streets of downtown Winchester, VA, as you participate in a unique scavenger hunt fun run. Lace up your running shoes and explore the city's rich history while searching for hidden gems and quirky historical items throughout the downtown area. Enjoy a lively, history-infused run that combines fitness with the thrill of discovery in this picturesque Virginia town!

    Participants of all ages are welcome (kids under 16 must be with parent/guardian). Teams will have one hour to run around, find and take photos of items then return to Runners’ Retreat. After, we will have a social get together at Vibrissa Beer & Kitchen (drinks and food on your own) and announce the winning team who will receive a prize!

        · Teams will consist of up to 2-4 runners/walkers.
        · Each team will receive a list of items with assigned points.
        · Teams must stay together for the entire run. Once you find an item, take a photo and be sure to include your team members in the photo.
           Some items have BONUS points, so be sure to try to score extra! 
        · Make sure at least one person on the team will be running with a running watch and a phone (with space for photos!).
        · Start your watch as soon as you leave the store and don't hit stop until you return! Be sure to let the event leaders know your team's final distance.

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.

ALWAYS visit the race's website for the most complete and accurate race information.
