The Third Annual Life is good, GNS Tapping of the Great Pumpkin 8K, 5K, 1-Mile Walk & Kids' Fun Run

Saturday, October 25th

3PM at Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant

 Life is good®, Genuine Neighborhood Shoppe in North Wales, Iron Hill Brewery, The Shoppes at Village and Harvest Seasonal Grill would like to cordially invite you and to join us for a delightful afternoon and early evening of three festive runs and a walk followed by "The Tapping of the Great Pumpkin" presented by the good folks at Iron Hill Brewery.

Everyone registered for the events will get a ticket for one free Iron Hill Pumpkin Ale (straight from a giant pumpkin!) (21yrs+) and yummy appetizers straight from the fantastic Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar!! Choose to run your event in a costume and you will automatically be entered in the "Best Costume Contest" or feel free to run in your normal running attire!

Events consist of a wheel measured flat and fast 8k, 5k, a 1 mile walk and a 1/2 mile kid's fun run.

In addition there will be crafts and activities for the whole family. This event is a not to be missed event that will sell out. We will limit the number of registered athletes to ensure safety for everyone involved. Runners are very encouraged to register before October 13th as this event will sell out, as once this event sells out we cannot allow any more runners. Also by registering by October 13th you are guaranteed a commemorative LONG SLEEVE DRI FIT TECH TEE.  A portion of the proceeds from this event will go directly to the Life is good Playmakers which helps children from unfair circumstances (learn more here!). This event is a FAMILY event and there will be something for everyone that we guarantee will bring a smile to everyone's face! : ) 

Price includes a commemorative LONG SLEEVE DRI FIT TECH TEE* Unisex (S-XL) Tee that EVERYONE will LOVE!, one FREE freshly brewed Iron Hill Brewery beer (MUST be 21+ years old), free DELICIOUS appetizers from Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar, and entrance into the Tapping of the Great Pumpkin Festival! *To guarantee an AWESOME commemorative LONG SLEEVE DRI FIT TECH TEE, racers must register by October 13th.


Once again...runners and walkers are encouraged to wear a costume- BUT by no means are you obligated. Plenty of runners and walkers will dress up and plenty will be wearing their normal running gear as well.

 

Once again, EVERYONE who registers for either the 8k or the 5k by October 13th is GUARANTEED a commemorative long sleeve tech tee!! (After that, it's while supplies last.)
