The Inaugural Fleet Feet Pickle will take place on August 2nd, 2014. It’s a destination relay fun run between the Fleet Feet/Off'N Running store locations in Greensboro and High Point, so grab your friends and fellow runners to put together a team. The 30K course takes runners along the Greenway from Greensboro to High Point. This will be a relay in which 4 hand off locations will be set. Teams can be comprised of 4 members, 2 members or 1 brave participant! Where does the pickle come in? There will be pickle juice at the water stations, all finishers will get a jar of pickles, and instead of passing a baton between relay members, the teams will pass a plastic pickle.
There is not a charge for registration, but your donation of $15.00 will enter you in the raffle, and all of the proceeds will go to Backpack Beginnings Foundation.. You are also welcome to buy more raffle tickets at the event. If you don’t want to run, volunteers are needed! To find out more and to register, look under the events tab at BackpackBeginnings.org
