Ready to "Earn Your Beer?"
In 2021, Fleet Feet Mishawaka is bringing you a brand new Pub Run experience. We've overhauled our weekly Pub Run for two reasons:
1. Reward the diehard runners who show up every week, regardless of weather, light, or lack of a pub.
2. Create a new, inviting experience for those who have never run with us, or who don't make it as often.
We've created a point system for attendance (and some other factors) so that you'll be itching to show up each week, earn some points, and eventually some sweet swag. The best part: It's totally free to you. Keep reading for more information on what it means to "Earn Your Beer" (and other cool things!)
How to earn points:
Upon your first visit to our weekly Pub Run during 2021, you'll get signed up for the points system. Below is a list of what you can do to earn points:
- Attend the Fleet Feet Mishawaka Wednesday night Pub Run = 100 points
- Bring a friend for their 1st visit to the Pub Run = 150 points
- Wear a Fleet Feet branded item with you to the run (only one item counts) = 25 points
- Attend the monthly special event at the Fleet Feet Mishwaka Pub Run (more on that below) = 100 points
Points will be assigned at 6:30pm to those present and fulfilling any of the other criteria. Make sure you are on time to secure your points!
As mentioned, we will be hosting a special event at the Pub Run each month. This event is to highlight some of our local partners and national vendors. This event will happen on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. We'll make events through Facebook and if we have your email, you'll be kept updated. Expect to see and get some cool things for these events!
What you'll earn:
Once you reach a certain threshold with points, you'll get some free swag from us! The points accumulate over the course of 2021 and you'll unlock each prize as you go along. See below for the list of prizes and the point tier associated to them:
- 650 points = A free beer! ($5 gift card to local pub)
- 1300 points = $15 coupon to Fleet Feet Mishawaka
- 1950 points = A Fleet Feet Trucker Hat
- 2600 points = A free pair of performance running socks from Swiftwick
- 3250 points = A "Hydration Sampler" from Infinit Nutrition
- 3900 points = A Fleet Feet Pub Run t-shirt
The second leg of prizes will be annouced at the end of March 2021! Some of the items are provided by our awesome sponsors. Be sure to read more about them below.
How to participate:
Wanna know how you can earn some free swag? Easy, just show up! The Pub Run takes place every Wednesday at 6:30 PM, starting from O'Rourke's Public House near Notre Dame's campus. When you arrive at the Pub Run, a Fleet Feet representative will take your name and email and assign you some points for being present. It's that easy! Every few weeks, we'll take some time before the run to update anyone interested on where their point values are. We'll also have some handy cards to help remind you how to earn points and what you redeem.
If you're on Facebook, we will also have a group available for you to join that will have point totals posted every month. Be sure to join the group here.
How to redeem:
We will email you your reward each time you pass the appropriate point threshold. Point totals will be tallied the Thursday after a Pub Run. If you pass a threshold that Thursday, you'll be getting an email with instruction to pick up your prize. That's all there is to it!
The Safety Procedures:
We're taking the safety of our groups seriously during this COVID-19 pandemic, and that means that Pub Runs look a little different right now. Please go over the following safety procedures we will be enforcing:
- Upon your first visit to the Fleet Feet Pub Run, you will be required to sign a waiver.
- When meeting before the Pub Run, as well as during the run, we ask that you keep your distance from other participants, leaving six feet of space between you. Face coverings/masks are optional, but encouraged for any gathering pre and post run. (No face coverings are to be worn while running.)
- Once the run is over, we recommend heading back home. If you choose to stay at the local pub, you will be assuming any risk associated.
We can't wait to resume a normal Pub Run with you all, but until then, we must take the precautions seriously. It takes all of us!
