DETAILED DESCRIPTION

The Jolly Jester Jaunt is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a leisurely crawl through Galveston's Downtown Historic District & follow it up with a day of great Celebrations & Libations! The run is <5 kilometers long and will begin at 21st and Strand heading west to 25th street, loop around to Mechanic Street, and head back east to 20th street, making 3 laps. Walking and/or Running is permitted as this is a non-competitive, non-timed event! JUST HAVE FUN, GET SOME EXERCISE, AND DRINK SOME BEER.

Packet pickup: Friday, Fed 14th and Feb 21st @ Beerfoot Beach Bar located at 2816 Ave R 1/2 from 5pm to 8pm night.

WARNING: Crazy outfits/Team Uniforms are EXTREMELY encouraged. The more OUTRAGEOUS, the better! People in normal, boring clothes will be punished with evil stares and glares for the rest of their lives.

After the run, jaunt over to any official festival beer booth (yellow & black signage) and redeem your bib ticket for a refreshing libation. Then head to the Trolley Station balcony located on Strand between 20th & 21st where you can tantalize the revelers to perform tricks for beads (remember this access is for the first 300 registrants only, so what are you waiting for?) !!

It's an amazing deal for an awesome Saturday at one of Galveston Islands great historic festivals so don't miss out!!

 

NOTE: Due to the costs of preparation and setup, there will be NO REFUNDS for this event. The run will be done rain or shine. In the case of extreme inclement weather, a new run date will be chosen.
