About This Activity

Lets turn this running 3.1-miles thing into a party!

There's a pool, a pond, the pond would probably be good for most of you; couple this with great people, a few cocktails at the end of hump day, and voila we've got a 5k Happy Hour!

The SL 5KHHIs will be held one Wednesday evening per month (May - September). This is an invitational event, meaning you have to have made it to this page to be invited. You can register per event or for the whole series, but only registered participants get free drinks!

100% of registration proceeds will be going towards the happy hour events!  Each registration gets you drinks (we'll have beers, sodas, mixers and water) and 2 tacos or a burrito from the El Ranchero Mexican food truck! There might even be a fancy schmancy white cotton tee with some sort of inappropriate something on it for the series investors?!

The course will be an odd shaped pretzel around the lake (map coming soon) and may or may not be chip timed.

Don't do these events if you're looking for a "Winner" medal or trophy, age group prizes or special recognition because you've turned suffering into some sort of masochist pleasure treasure in your mind. This will be a point series however and there will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes (gift cards!) for those point leaders come September. You get points for completing each race, and whoever has the most points at the end is the winner, then the next person is 2nd, and the next person is 3rd...  There will be some sort of intersting tie-breaker if needed and I'll conjure that up come the 4th event if it looks like a barn burner! But really the prize each race will be running then drinking and eating with other awesome like-minded peeps!

This will be a fun series! The quality and selection of happy hour libations each week depends soley on the number of registrants (ie. Golden Anniversary vs. Hop Devil). If you just want to happy hour and skip the run, that's fine, but you have to register for that too! There will be water and some sort of chemical sugar liquid for the kiddos as well.
