It’s Our Annual Halloween Party!
“Darkness falls across the land. The midnight hour is close at hand. Creatures crawl in search of blood, to terrorize y’awl’s neighborhood. And Whosoever shall be found, without the soul for getting down. Must stand and face the hounds of hell, and rot inside a corpse’s shell. The foulest stench is in the air. The funk of forty thousand years. And grizzly ghouls from every tomb, are closing in to seal your doom. Although you fight to stay alive. Your body starts to shiver. For no mere mortal can resist. The evil of the Thriller!”
This week marks our annual Halloween Party! We hope you’ve got those costumes ready as we’ll have a special Halloween route, games, and awards for best male and female costume. All this, plus DJ Marathon will be in the house with plenty of music and dancing and of course we’ll have our big month-end giveaway courtesy of Deschutes Brewery! See you at 6:00 PM this Thursday at Ripples!
Featured Brewery: Deschutes
Deschutes Brewery is back again as our beer sponsor for October and will be providing us with after-run hydration all month long! You can check out a selection of their beer right after the run! “Good people drink good beer.” – Hunter S. Thompson
