Blind Lady Fifth Anniversary CAPE RUN
Here is how this works. We meet at Blind Lady Ale House, which incidentally turns FIVE this week. You check in at the latest by 9:45am. You receive your Commemorative Shirt, your official team color BEER socks, your race number with it's detachable drink tickets and your route map. You bring your own cape.
At 10am we take a picture and then head off in three distinct routes: each color being assigned it's own way. So you will head to one of three bars: Livewire, Tiger! Tiger! or Toronado. You will run with your team more or less. You will pass other teams on the way. You will respectfully mock them if you so desire.
At each bar you will turn in a beer ticket that is attached to your bib in exchange for a beer. You could bring dollar bills with you for additional tips, because it's nice. But if you can't, a small portion of your race entry fee will go to each bar's staff. When your team captain says it's time to leave, you probably go with them. But you don't have to. But it's a good idea. We do this two more times, at two more bars. The order is dependent upon which team you are on.
Eventually ALL will return to Blind Lady, your final stop, where you will still have a drink ticket left to use, if you followed the game plan. The whole thing is pretty close to 5K worth of running and will take at least two+ hours (or more) to complete. Once at BLAH we will NOT call a victor because there are no winners, except that there are. We will award prizes for best cape, most team spirit and maybe a few other awards we haven't thought of yet.
So wait! Why do this if there is no winner and it's a bit of a free for all? Because it's fun to run the streets of San Diego wearing a cape in a large pack of people. Because it's fun to run and stop to drink a beer, or four. Because it's fun.
Please act responsibly though and don't use the beer/run thing as an excuse for being belligerent or rude or not following traffic laws. Please be kind to your bartenders and fellow runners. Don't expect it to be a perfectly organized race event. It's a moderately organized drinking event with some running and capes. Also you have to be 21 or older, but you knew that.
When signing up you will have the option of choosing a team color as long as that team color still has open spots. We do this so you can have the same colors as your friends, so coordinate, if you feel like it. There is no other significance to color choices, at this time. So if you have no affiliation to friends, pick your favorite color. Questions? Email us.
