The Merrier Games are Back!!!

December 17, 2020 @ 6:15 pm - 7:15 pm

It’s the Merriest Season of all and the Merrier Games are here!! We are super excited to be able to offer up our favorite event of the year in a way that we believe will keep everyone safe.
This year, our fun will take place in and around the Park Ave neighborhood. While we are limiting team size, we are keeping the hunting grounds to a smaller circumference so you will likely be ‘running into’ your competitors often! There are also plenty of sidewalks, street lights, and holiday cheer along the route.
In order to make this a safe and fun evening for everyone, we ask that you please read through the event rules below. Please do not ask us to make exceptions and don’t be a bah-humbug about it. We just want to run, have fun, and to be merry!
