Run for Water Swag

Last night was the first night of package pickup for the Calgary Run for Water on Saturday!  After work, I blasted downtown with the twinners to pick up my race swag (and to attempt to register JS at the last minute)

The swag is actually pretty nice:

  • Mesh Run for Water shirt (10k gets tech shirts, 5k gets cotton) - love that it is one I might actually wear, though it is a bit short on me (and I am short waisted)
  • Small cinch sack (better size than the ones you usually get for races)
  • Bib complete with annoying bib chip (grr - bring back shoe chips, Running Room!)
  • Event guide
  • Get Out There magazine
  • candy and paintball coupon
According to the event guide, they will also be selling commemorative swag at the race on Saturday.  I love commemorative swag so I guess we'll see if i will be shopping!

It also looks like they really make their races an event!!  Bouncy castles and food for the families.  Meal for the runners after.  Entertainment.   I'm actually pretty excited!

And, if you are in Calgary, there is still time to register!  They will be doing registrations tonight from 4-8pm at the Eau Claire Running Room and then tomorrow morning from 7:30-8:30am before the race starts! 

Hope to see you there!

Are you running Run for Water in Calgary tomorrow?
