Nutty Runner 5K
The Nutty Runner 5K will be making its return March 20, only this year it is getting NuttyER! 2020 was crazy and we want to move on and celebrate good times with good friends and good beer (masked up and socially distanced of course!)
Our 2021 race is being adapted into a downtown team scavenger hunt! Form a team of 2-4 people and be prepared to run a 3-4ish mile route (depending upon which direction you choose!) Solve riddles that will lead to various businesses downtown and expect 3 Nutty Runner Nut Brown Ales (by Columbus House Brewery) to be consumed along the way! The scavenger hunt starts at the Walton Arts Center parking lot, where it ends-you will have to see! (But rest assured that if you park downtown, you will not be far from your car!) Teams will need to designate 1 member to download and use Strava in order to be considered for overall prizes. Teams will have 1.5 hours to complete the course (this averages to about 22.5 min/mile-assuming the longest route of 4 miles).
For the more cautious souls who don’t feel the need to drink and run, there’s the Designated Driver division. But however you choose to participate, there will be additional shirts, and Nutty Runner merch available for purchase at the finish line.
All proceeds benefit The Spark Foundation, a local Fayetteville nonprofit with a mission to create a positive impact in the community by providing increased access to health and fitness education and opportunities. For more details, visit www.nuttyrunner5k.com.
