SWAG BAGS

The Board and Committee have worked hard on creating swag bags for all of the runners. These will include the annual race t-shirts (in a new color this year!), coupons, giveaways and handy race-day essentials from generous sponsors such as Chick-Fil-A, NOVEC, Leisure Fitness and Smoothie King Woodbridge.

DJ & REFRESHMENTS

Our DJ, Jeremy Whitham of Whitham Productions, will set up about 30 minutes prior to the race, just in time for warm ups (compliments of AnteUp Fitness) and will continue to entertain as the runners make their way across the finish line. There will also be plenty of refreshments, including coffee, fruit and pastries for before and after.

FOR THE KIDS

In addition to the Fun Run, we'll also have Face Painting and Cupcake Decorating stations. And don't worry, if adults want to jump in on the fun, we won't judge!

POST RACE

Great news! This year, Ornery Beer Company in Woodbridge has graciously offered to host our group for a post-race gathering. So even if you can't make it to run, consider joining for the after party. 20% of each check will be donated to The Quincy Conner Foundation! The entire back of the bar will be reserved just for us.

As you can hopefully see, there's been a ton of time, effort and love put into this event and would mean the world to see you all there to run, cheer people on, or raise a glass in honor of Quincy!
