About This Activity

Join the 5K Flash Mob on October 28th for a 6PM start for the Mob's next 5K Flash Mob in 2016!  Join the Mob and be told after midnight where to go to find the start, and learn the route ... we are the 5K Flash Mob!  Run outside the box with the 5K Flash Mob, and you will have 55 minutes until the finish line is removed!!  The route is a secret, but all 5K Flash Mob Members signed up for the run will be contacted after midnight prior to the morning of the day of the 5K Flash Mob!  Afterwards enjoy a cold post-run beverage compliments of an awesome and favorite Pub within the Zip Code!! 

If you've never run a 5K, so many have done their first 5K with the 5K Flash Mob, so join us!! If you are an elite runner, the normal human runners would love to hear your stories during the post-run assembly.  Sometimes prizes are awarded, but it's a raffle so the normal human runners have an opportunity to win a prize after running!

From Charleston, South Carolina to Albany, New York the 5K Flash Mob routes have transformed since its creation, and from Murphy's Irish Pub in Alexandria, VA to the Tavern on the Green in Central Park, the 5K Flash Mob's post run beverage has always been a good time as well as complimentary!

So, what is a 5K Flash Mob?

A 5K Flash Mob is a group of runners who assemble suddenly to run 5000 meters outdoors.  They complete this unusual and seemingly pointless act within 55 minutes, then quickly disperse, but often times will reassemble afterwards to rehydrate and replenish.

All are welcome to join in on the Flash Mob, because it is free, but only registered participants will receive a bib number.  Bib numbers have value, for free hydration awaits bib holders, plus gifts are often handed out at the post race assembly.

Join the 5K Flash Mob, and run a 5K, or walk just 1.6K (1 mile) course, because we “flash mob” for a reason.  The 5K Flash Mob will soon be a 501c3 non-profit, who will always support St Jude Children's Research Hospital, as well as local charitible needs!

* The one time only registration fee through Active is for membership into the 5K Flash Mob and is not a race entry fee.  5K Flash Mobs are just one free benefit for being a member of the 5K Flash Mob.
