We finally did it! F.N. Fun Run is finally putting an event together. Well, something besides your favorite one Friday a month event that is. This one will be a paid event with proceeds going to the Butte des Morts Conservation Club (BDMCC) to help out with preservation and upkeep. If you have been to an F.N. Fun Run, you know that we have two main goals. We want to run and we want to have fun. Pretty simple right? (says the guys that run all the time) Here is what you are going to do, choose 2 Hours, 4 Hours or 6 Hours to accumulate as many miles as you wish around beautiful Terrell’s island! This is a great event to push your limits or come and complete your first half or full marathon! Worried? Think about this, if you walk the loop twice you will be around the 2 hour mark. Doesn’t sound so bad now, does it?
The loop is approximately 3.7 miles long and will have 2-3 fully stocked aid stations, so you are never far from food/water or bathroom! This is a green event so you will need to bring and carry your own water bottle. We will be happy to fill it for you at the aid stations.
Those of you that know how we roll may be wondering how we are going to have an epic after party with a 2,4 and 6 hour run. Good news for you, the after party is still going to be a blast because we will stagger the starts so that everyone can hang out together afterwards!! I know, pretty exciting right! Here is the deal:
Start Time: 6 hour (or relay) participants will start at 6am
4 hour participants will start at 8am
2 hour participants will start at 10am
Everyone will end at noon for an epic after race party at a near by bar. Your entry will include 2 free beers or sodas.
Due to limited parking we will offer a shuttle service to and from the after party location.
BDMCC is our charity sponsor! They have on going costs involved with upkeep and we are excited to help raise money for them! We are also excited to share their beautiful island with you!
ALL runners receive an F.N. Fun Run T-shirt and a completion medal. We will have awards for the top finishers for each timed group.
T-shirts only guaranteed if signed up before July 27th.
Event details and schedule
You must have your own water bottle. We will have water for you to fill your bottle with but since we are trying to be as responsible as possible, we will not have cups on the course. Too easy for them to blow into the water.
An email will be sent out with packet pick up days and times prior to race day.
Please arrive early enough to park and get set up. The parking lot will be off limits to runners. You will need to park on Rivermoor. Due to the size of the road, there will only be parking on one side of the Rivermoor road.
If you have anything that you want available for your run, there will be an area at the beginning of the run to store items like endurance chews, etc.
The course runs for about 3 miles with water on either side of you so sunscreen is highly recommended.
We will send out reminder emails and other pertinent information including parking as the run gets closer.
