Every Friday in April…
Who wants to spend extra time in your stiff work clothes, fatigued at a Friday happy hour? That’s why you gotta love your favorite spring evening race series, the Crystal City 5k Fridays. Select any one event or join us every Friday in April at 6:30 pm for one of the most popular and fun 5k races in the metro area.
AND, you can have your happy hour and drink it too. Runners will receive post-race drink tickets that can be used at select Crystal City watering holes.
Race Through the Vibrant Streets of Downtown Crystal City!
Great things about running 5k Fridays:
1. Run a low key race afterwork on Friday
2. Meet up for happy hour after you run
3. Choose your own shirt
Number 3 got your attention, didn’t it? This year we are bringing choice to your race swag!
Pick your shirt, pick your screen, and get it hot off the heat press on Friday nights in Crystal City. Run one race, run all four, buy one shirt, buy all four- it is up to you!
Registered series runners get to pick their one complimentary race tee on week 2 of the series (and can buy the remaining designs for a complete collection!)
Shirts are for sale every week for $20, select your screen and we will press your shirt for you onsite. Catch you out there #ForEveryRun.
Run the Series!
With a race every Friday evening in April, you can pick any single event or multiple events to run. Choosing the full 4-race Series offers a savings of $5 on each race, $20 total value and receives a race premium gift, one of the 4 custom Tees or a Pacers Retail Bucks.
By running the Series, you’ll have the opportunity to test yourself and try to improve each week!
One or all– it’s your choice! The metro area’s fittest happy hour is waiting for you every Friday night in April!
