Description

We're proud to announce Fit & Able's newest holiday race: the Fortnight Before Christmas! It is also the third race in Fit & Able's new Holiday Race Series. 

Choose between a 3 Miler, 2 Mile, or 1 Mile race (overall and age group awards for each) and of course young kids are welcome to participate with parents too!

All finishers will get a great Fortnight Brewery pint glass and the first 100 to register (for those 21+) will get their first pint on us! Fortnight is also running a special for this event so all other pints are just $3!

Come join us for a unique race and enjoy some great beers at Fortnight Brewery!
