Capes and Kicks Flashmob Run
Thursday, July 31, 2014 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
It's time for another flashmob run, and this time, we're upping the ante. Demo shoes, free socks, plus a free 5K course with some of the raddest people in town.
Throw on your version of a superhero cape - whether it's the real thing or just a beach towel tied around your neck. Creativity counts for points and points count for fun prizes! Be forewarned, no cape = no eligibility for prizes.
We'll do a 5K around downtown Chattanooga, high fiving unsuspecting people, and generally spreading positivity and craziness. Mizuno will have demo shoes for y'all to try out, and Swiftwick will be there with 25 pairs of socks to give away.
If you like getting social after you get sweaty, we'll be joining together for post-run eats at Buffalo Wild Wings downtown. 60 cent boneless wings are on special!
If this is your first 5K ever in the history of your life, let us know. Everyone's first time is a little awkward, so a flashmob like this works well if you've never raced before. We might have a little something for you at the finish if you're a first-timer.
This is a flashmob run, not a race. The point is to do something active and fun with fun-loving people, for FREE, without the pressure and the cost of racing. The roads will NOT be blocked off to traffic; you will be running on sidewalks and public paths. You will be expected to obey all traffic signals, which means that you might have to stop at some intersections, and try your best not to run over any unsuspecting pedestrians. (You are welcome to invite the unsuspecting pedestrians to run with you though!)
- Run Chattanooga is a no-pressure, supportive, encouraging group. You don't need to run fast to impress us. You don't even have to run to impress us; showing up is good enough! Walkers are welcome as well. We'll cheer just as loud for the first finisher as we will for the last. You must be prepared to give high fives and good juju to your fellow flashmobbers, because that's just how we do things.
- There is no age limit. Bring your kids and bring your grandparents. Strollers, wheelchairs, scooters are all welcome! Friendly four-legged friends can come too!
- Flashmobs get better when they get bigger. Share this event with your friends, your family, your neighbor, your pharmacist, your hair stylist, and your grocery store clerk. Don't just call and text your friends, share it on Facebook, fire up your Twitter, and Instagram your cape creating sessions.
- Details about the exact location of the start/finish will be emailed to you the week of the event. We've got to keep them under wraps, otherwise we'll lose the FLASHMOB-ITY of this event. We can tell you that it will be in Downtown Chattanooga.
When & Where
Run Chattanooga is a crazy group of people who like to be active, be encouraging, and have fun. While "run" is in our name, and we consider that our specialty, we support physical activity in general, whether that includes running, walking, skipping, jitterbugging, or whatever you do that makes your heart pump to remind you that you are alive. Our goal is to build a community of movement-happy people, who not only work out together, but do life together, spreading and sharing their endorphins like a tumor. A healthy tumor. Run Chattanooga hosts free workouts, group runs, and flashmobs all over the Chattanooga area.
