About This Activity

The nOg Run Club, creators of the fairly epic St. Paddy’s and Oktoberfest Run Green 8K, invite you to join us for the World Record Flip Flop Run- where running in a thong never felt so good! The run will take place on June 18th, 2016, which happens to be National Flip Flop Day!! This run is open to people of all ages. If you can run/walk a half a mile in flip flops, you can join us. Registration is only $20 (save 20% if you register a team of 10) and includes an event shirt which MUST be worn during the run. Make sure you take advantage of discounted Feelgoodz sandals when you register!

When you register, you will select your shirt color. This shirt MUST be worn during the run (Guinness requirement). You will enter into the holding area by corrals of the same shirt color. If you would like to line up with your friends, you MUST select the same color shirt.

Run Details

This non-timed 1K fun run and everyone must wear unaltered "thong" flip flops! The current Guinness World Record is 613 and was set by us last year! You must be at Bond Brothers Beer Company by 10:45am. Included in your registration is a race shirt which MUST BE WORN DURING THE RUN. If you are not wearing thong (unaltered) sandals or wearing your race shirt, you will not be able to participate. Guinness requires us to have every 50 runners wear a different color shirt which makes it easier for them to validate our total number of runners.
