Join us this Wednesday night for a 1, 3 or 5 mile run around the NoDa NE Neighborhood and end with a delicious NoDa Brewing Company brewski! Every Wednesday we celebrate running with various fitness related vendors from the community, and we might even throw in some free swag now and then! This week we are celebrating National Pi Day with PIE! Some of our NoDa Brewing Staff members will be competing to win the title of Pi Pie King or Queen by baking their best pies for you to judge! The tasting will take place after the run starting at 7pm, and it is first come first serve until the pie is gone. You will sample the pies and then cast your vote!
We will also be raising money for the Piedmont Culinary Guild with a Pi Pie in the Face Throw! Our race director Carla, as well as a few of our sassy ambassadors have volunteered to get pied in the name of charity! $2 will get you one pie throw, and if you hit your mark, you win a prize!
Also, the TIN Kitchen Food Truck will have a special pie option on for you in honor of our Pi Pie Run!
We have our Director Carla as well as 10 Run Club Ambassadors on hand to help answer any questions, be your running buddy, or just give a high five to! Our Ambassadors also host our Sunday Runday at noon so you can get to know them even better!
We have a Frequent Runner Program we encourage everyone to join — every time you run, simply record your mileage on your Frequent Runner Card. For each mileage milestone you hit (25, 50, 75, 100....) you get a prize! Just show your card to an Ambassador or to Carla and we'll reward your hard work with fun giveaways!
We also launched the Pursuit of Hoppiness earlier this year. This is a year long raffle! Each run you attend gets you one entry into the raffle, and in December we will announce the winner. The grand prize is the chance to brew your very own beer with NoDa's Head Brewer Chad Henderson to be served on tap for all to enjoy!
Our routes are marked with color coded arrows, or you can pick up a laminated printout of our turn by turn directions for simple navigation (please return after using). As always, be courteous to our neighbors while running by making sure to look both ways before darting into traffic, running off to the side and letting cars pass, and be sure to give our neighbors a wave as you run by! 👋🏼
We all run the first mile together, and here are the Strava links for the 3 and 5 mile routes. Feel free to save them for simple navigation!
