Dig out those holiday ugly sweater shirts, jingle bells, and festive hats. One of Fleet Feet Fox Valley's fan favorite events is back WITH A TWIST! We're headed to the NEW Hop Yard Ale Works on Northland in Appleton, and this year we're upping the Holiday Spirit.
BRING A GIFT, MAKE A GIFT, GET A GIFT: This year we're partnering with Cole's Crusade, a local non-profit that raises funds to support children and their families that are walking through critical illness. $10 of every participant registration will go directly to a local family. We also invite you to bring a brand-new toy to be donated to the Wisconsin Children's Hospital. This is the time of the year when they run out of the gifts and toys collected for the holiday; let's replenish their supply!
RUN/WALK THE CITY STREETS: Meet us at one of the newest breweries in the area, Hop Yard Ale Works! They're opening up just for us. Dress to (holiday!) impress and we'll take over Northland and the neighborhood nearby to spread some holiday cheer!! Maps and routes will be available for 1.5 and 3-mile options. Walkers and runners of all paces and abilities welcome. Be sure to bring your phone!! We'll have some (optional) tasks for you to accomplish during your workout.
THEN QUENCH YOUR THIRST: Return to the Hop Yard; first drink** on us! Pre-order from a special event menu and they'll have your food prepped upon your return. PLUS, the patio will be open, so we'll be hanging out celebrating summer. Prizes for costumes, some random raffles, and jolly good merriment will take place inside and out.
**Hop Yard will have their own brews along with super yummy guest taps available. They will also offer:
- Liquid Death canned water in still, sparkling, lime, berry and mango;
