APRIL 5 | HAPPY BIRTHDAY, WERUNMPLS!
If this is your first time reading one of our posts, here are a few things you should know: 1) we are all about community – if you want to make new friends or find buddies to run with, this is your group; 2) we welcome everyone – no matter your pace, gender or fitness ability – we split into groups based on pace so everyone can get what they want out of the night; 3) our Thursday night routes are always just about 3 miles – sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less; 4) we’re about fun – want to have fun? Join us!
WeRunMPLS is less than two weeks away from turning FOUR. It's crazy to sit here and type those words. A lot has happened in the past four years + I couldn't be more happy about what WeRunMPLS has become or more excited about what's still ahead.
To keep with tradition, we're throwing ourselves a birthday party at Bauhaus! Read on for details + some highlights from year three.
When: Thursday, April 5 at 6:30pm
Bauhaus Brew Labs
1315 Tyler Street NE
Bauhaus' website: http://bauhausbrewlabs.com/
What: 3 miles (all paces welcome, no one runs alone) + cake, gear, announcements + maybe a surprise or two!
We can't wait to celebrate! YOU are what makes WeRunMPLS so special + we're so grateful to spend our Thursdays, Saturdays and everything in-between with you. Invite a friend + come celebrate with us on Thursday, April 5!
See you April 5!
