GET NOTHING 5K 03 - Seven-11 5K



GET NOTHING 5K 03 - Seven-11 5K

5k, 10k, Other


[Let's gather for a pleasant Thursday evening 5K at Riverside Arts Market (RAM) in collaboration with Sombrero Running Events!  Join the regular Downtown Group Run with Mike Martinez at 6:30pm if you like, and then stick around for the 5K to start at 7:30pm!  We will be running over the Fuller Warren Bridge Shared Use Path (SUP) FOUR times to get the 5 Kilometer distance, so bring your bridge legs!   Meet up at the RAM and we will head to the SUP at around start time.  Please be sure to REGISTER if you are planning on doing the 5K.  Please bring your own hydration.]


GET NOTHING 5K offers NO swag bags, NO medals, and absolutely NO shirts - just the pure, unadulterated joy of running together.  Experience the exhilaration of crossing the finish line and getting NOTHING: no cheaply made medal to gather dust, no poorly designed t-shirt to stuff in your already overflowing drawer, no pressure to compete for age group awards - just the satisfaction of knowing you ran 5 kilometers and had FUN while doing so.  Since you get NOTHING, you even need to bring your own HYDRATION.  But that's okay, because you also PAID NOTHING - GET NOTHING 5K is a FREE TIMED 5K.  🤷???


Make it whatever YOU want it to be:  you can run fast and aim for a PR if you want, but if you "win", you still get NOTHING.   Run fast, or run slow - or somewhere in between.  Do a tempo run, interval training, use it as a tune-up or shake-out, just get in a few miles for the day, or enjoy a leisurely jog with your running bestie.  Meet new friends, catch up with old ones, encourage others along the way, maybe even inspire someone to join the fun next time.  


Running together is always more fun than running alone!  😍


WALKERS are very welcome.  GET NOTHING 5K is a community event meant for everyone, regardless of pace.  There will be a designated "TURTLE" whose job is to bring up the rear.  So unless YOU volunteer for this vital task, you will never finish last!  


Since you get NOTHING to eat or drink at the finish line - no water, no chewy granola bar, not even a stinkin' banana - why not have a spontaneous social meet-up afterwards?  Go for a beverage, ice cream, or some tacos with your fellow finishers.  You earned it today!  After all you ran 5 kilometers, by gum!  


To participate: register online, check in before the start to get your bib, then wear it on your FRONT.  Timing is done manually, and that's really hard to do if you hide your bib!  There are no timing chips - everything is GUN TIME.  That means the clock starts when the GO command is given, NOT when you cross the start line.  Keep that in mind when comparing official results with your own GPS time, so no complaining later!  Depending on where we run, there may or may not be toilets available nearby... so please mind your own "business" before the start.


Let's get together to RUN, and to have some FUN - see you at the start line!  🏃 🏃???
