About This Activity

It's new, it's fun, it's different, its free, its a Tailgating Run.   The San Diego Chargers will be in town to trounce the Jaguars, so might as well salvage something out of the day, so come run a 5k, then tailgate, and then go to the game.

This is not an official race as there are no street closures and no course support.   It's going to be more of a "there just happened to be alot of people running here with timing chips" kind of thing if anyone asks.

The run will start and finish at The Cat Box, located at 1568 Fairfield Avenue.  The Cat Box is a little slice of Heaven in the Hood and is a house that's sole purpose is tailgating for Jaguar games.   There is plenty of parking around the Cat Box for everyone.   The run will start around 9:30am, go south around the stadium, by the Baseball Grounds, by the Cat Statue at the Stadium and then back to the Cat Box.   A full course map can be seen at

While there is no cost to register, we will ask everyone running will put $10 cash in the pot on race day to be split up for prize money.  There will be a keg of Jon Boat ale for everyone after the run.   The $10 from every runner will go into a payout pot which will either pay in forward or reverse order of finish to either odd or even finishers.   After the race there will be a random drawing to determine which way and which places pay.   The first payout will be $10 and then will increase in $5 increments until there is no more money left.    

For anyone that is worried about being sweaty for the game, there is a shower and hoses available at the Cat Box for anyone wanting to rinse off.
