1/2K Race for the Future


Sep 29, 2018
04:00 PM until 06:30 PM


Does the thought of running make your legs tired before you even start?

We have the perfect "race" for toddlers, the elderly, and the chronically lazy.

Join Mainsprings in the 1/2K "Race" for the Future. Underachievers from across the city will gather together for an afternoon of fun, food, drinks, music, giant yard games, and a little bit of running (but only if you feel like it). The day will be an excuse to get a little bit of exercise, but most importantly, have some outrageous fun!

Each "runner" will receive some awesome swag to take home and brag about this incredible undertaking, including, but not limited to: a 1/2K "winner" medal, a custom 1/2K Race for the Future koozie, and a pretentious "1/2K finisher" bumper sticker to brag around town. 

A rehydration station will be located at the 1/4K mark, where all thirsty "racers" will receive a free beer to carry them through the final 820 feet. Those underachievers under 21 years of age will have the opportunity to rehydrate with a refreshing sports drink. 

Upon completion, we encourage all "racers" to visit the medic tent right away, where they can get a donut from the Hurts Donut Whaaambulance, because we know you will be wanting to replenish your carbs and sugar after such an undertaking. And since your legs will be so tired and you can't go anywhere after the race, sit an enjoy food from Dave's Smoke Shack food truck, Linam Up Grill food truck, the Kona Ice truck, and music from DJ Connection and some fun yard games!


$25 per adult "racer"
