We're proud to bring back one of Fit & Able's favorite holiday races! The Fortnight Before Christmas will be all virtual BUT the in-person post-race party is still going down at Fortnight Brewery on Saturday December 3rd!
All runners will get a Fortnight Before Christmas knit hat or Cool Santa hat & sunglasses, Fortnight Brewery souvenir glass, and a pair of Cozy Toes socks at the party. PLUS those participants 21+ will get TWO pints on us! * Two drink tickets per registered 21+ participant; appropriate kids drinks will be available too.
Chili dogs, baked potatoes, and chips will be available for registered participants at the post-race party as well! We will also be collecting toys and donations for the US Veterans Corps' Toys 4 Lil' Troops toy drive to help them provide a merry Christmas for children of deployed troops.
Toys For Lil Troops is a program that provides toys specifically to the children of low income and deployed troops. Every year, the US Veterans Corps delivers these toys to local military installations. We also deliver toys year round to the children of Veteran and First Responder famililes in need through the Shop with a Cop and Shop with a Sheriff programs.
