Kicking off last week, the runs start at 6 p.m. every Wednesday. With a limit of 100 runners, each participant runs on their own from home for approximately three miles. (If runners wish to run more miles, or if their pace is slower than a 10-minute mile, it is suggested they start your run prior to 6 p.m.)
After the run the participants then can settle in and join fellow runners for the Fleet Feet Virtual Pub on Zoom Meetings at 6:30 p.m. (Meeting ID is 395-825-852 .
The retailer is urging participants to go out and complete their run and then afterwards bring their favorite beverage, put on their favorite party clothes and set up an online party/pub/bar background for the 40-minute Virtual Meeting Pub Run. Then over a relaxing post-run drink participants will share how they are all coping with social distancing and stay-at-home restrictions.
Those who participate will be entered into a live drawing for free giveaways and one participant with the craziest drinking costume will receive an exclusive limited-edition Fleet Feet Victory Beer Bomber. Another participant with the best on-screen Pub Background will also be awarded a Fleet Feet Victory Beer Bomber.
Then the retailer will draw for a third Fleet Feet Bomber at the next Pub Run for the most original social media post at #runningisnotcanceled or #togtherwemove.
Finally everyone who participates will be entered into its final surprise Fleet Feet Goodie Bag drawing.
Not stopping there, Fleet Feet Fort Wayne is also organizing a something called Rungo, described as like Bingo, but with a twist –
http://www.fleetfeetfortwayne.com/news/rungo – where participants take a picture of each completed square and post it to its page or tag it on Facebook or Instagram @fleetfeetftw #togetherwemove.
From March 25 through April 20, participants who complete one row of squares (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) are entered to win one of five prizes. If they complete the whole board they are entered to win the Grand Prize.
