BLITZ CRAFT BEER TASTING

Join us for post-race socializing with a live band (Chunky Daddy!) and beer tasting with our amazing local breweries. Not only will we have our bar open selling a variety of craft canned beer, five local breweries will be on site with multiple taps and reps to chat with. Either try a half pour of a new beer or go all in with a full pour of your favorite selection. We will have limited edition Blitz sourvenir cups ($10) for sale on site. Show your cup when you a purchase a beer and get a discounted pour! 

Souvenir cup: Full pour ($5), half pour ($3)

No cup: Full pour ($7), half pour ($4)

HIKING CHALLENGE

Get fit, support the Greenway, enjoy the outdoors and, of course, get a super cool race t-shirt by taking on our hiking challenge. New this year to Blitz we are adding a hiking challenge for those who want to be part of the race, help support the Greenway but want to take a little more time to enjoy the trail. Those who participate in our hiking challenge will be hiking our marked 5k course. They will sign up just like a race participant, the only difference being they won’t be timed or competing for first place. This is a super fun way to be part of the day’s events, so grab your family, friends and your dog and come hike with us!

KID'S SCAVENGER HUNT

From 9a-1p kids (12 and under) will be able to register for the scavenger hunt, pick up their scavenger card, super sweet Greenway sunglasses and set off on Trekker Loop to try and complete our Blitz Scavenger hunt! Your card will be a list of numbers with blank spaces beside them. It is your challenge to go out on trekker loop and find these numbers and tell us what they are marking. All those who complete the scavenger hunt will receive a special scavenger hunt prize!

WEATHER POLICY

Our events run rain or shine unless there is severe weather. While we never want to cancel a race, in situations such as tornado warnings, thunderstorms, heavy and persistent rain etc., we will need to cancel. Should we cancel you will be notified via social media, our website, and email. Should we cancel there will be no refunds as that money has already been put toward the race.
