When is cutoff for pre-registration?
You can pre-register online up until 3pm the day of the event. After that, you will have to register when you show up to Adventure Run. Be sure to get there as early as possible!

Where does the Thursday Adventure Run Start/Finish?
It always starts and ends at your local Road Runner Sports store.

Is this a running only event, or can walkers attend?
Walkers and runners alike are both welcome! The objective is to get to as many checkpoints as possible within an hour. Many checkpoints are well within walking distance of an hour.

How much does this cost?
It’s FREE!!

How many raffle tickets can I earn?

Up to 1mi = 1 raffle ticket
1 – 1 ½mi = 2 raffle tickets
1 ½ – 2 ½ mi = 3 raffle tickets
2 ½ mi and beyond = 4 raffle tickets

If you’re sporting the current year’s Adventure Run shirt, you’ll earn double those ticket amounts!! Make sure you buys your shirt to double your chances of winning!!!

How many miles is it if I run to every checkpoint?
Because the course changes each month, and everyone’s route is different, it’s impossible to know exactly. Most people can get to 6-8 checkpoints and it’s rare that people can hit all 12. In general, it can range from 5 miles up to 8 miles. Whatever you do, just make sure to get back in time for the raffle!

How do I know where to run?
Like the Adventure Run Facebook page. We’ll post a map of the night’s course on the timeline section of the page right when the run starts!
