Christmas in July at The Runners Edge

If you’re looking for a post-marathon running event, but aren’t ready to hop back in a race then look no further! Come join us for a fun, laid back, Christmas event! Wait, what? That’s right – our first ever Runner’s Edge Christmas in July fun run!

What is this you may ask? Christmas in July will be a non-competitive 5k-ish run combined with a white elephant gift exchange. This is a free event, but we do ask that you bring a $5- $10 wrapped gift as an “entry fee.” At various points in the run you will have the opportunity to exchange your wrapped gift for another, or keep running because you like your gift so much.

Saucony is contributing gifts as well so if you exchange your gifts correctly you may end up with a free pair of shoes or another great prize!

Christmas in July will be Monday, July 25th at 6:30pm at the Runners Edge. We hope to see you there in your best non-Christmas spirit!

Please contact Forrest at forrest@runnersedgemt.com with any questions.
