Forgotten Holidays Fun Run

Marymoor Park | Sunday, November 22 Redmond, WA 98052 US Directions
Description

WE'RE A GO! We've received approval, the race will go on! As of Monday, Nov 16, we've received approval from the county and state to continue to host our live running event. We will have plenty of safety guidelines in place to ensure all participants have a fun, safe experience! 

NOW LIVE! With the Governor's new guidance, we are giving participants the opportunity to participate in a live, in-person 10K/5K Run/Walk! Join us on Sunday, November 22nd at Marymoor Park and celebrate all those "holidays" we've missed in 2020. Come out, ready to run in your favorite Forgotten Holidays attire and celebrate what we've missed! Not ready for a live event quite yet? That's ok! We're still offering a virtual event for anyone that can't make the in-person event as well.

2020 has been a real drag for most of us. We've missed a lot of "holidays" that we've come to enjoy getting together with friends & family to celebrate over a few tasty beverages. We've lost St Patty's Day, Easter, Pi Day, Cinco De Mayo, Graduations, 4th of July and more. Let's not forget them. Let's not let them pass in 2020 - Let's celebrate those forgotten holidays! We've launched the Forgotten Holidays Fun Run to get out and challenge yourself. This live or virtual race is aimed to help you get outside and challenge yourself to a 5K, 10K or Half Marathon (Half Virtual Only). You choose the distance, run/walk your race and then we help you celebrate! 

What's our favorite part of a race? The after-party of course! Showing off our medals, meeting up with friends and cheersing a tasty beverage to our accomplishments. We've put together a swag bag that helps with just that. Each participant will receive a Forgotten Holidays Fun Run participant shirt, Bottle Opener Finisher Medal and a Tito's Handmade Vodka Moscow Mule Cocktail Kit for you to whip up your favorite Moscow Mule in celebration of your accomplishments! 

Choose your race distance, choose your outfit and lets celebrate those holidays we weren't able to get together for by participating in the Forgotten Holidays Fun Run!
