AH HA! If ever there was a perfect match for my blog this is it! The Super Run is a super hero-themed fun run where participants are encouraged to “nerd-out” and dress as their favorite superhero. I myself just so happen to be a nerd that runs and my nerdy blog features race reviews…. I think we were made for each other eh?
So here are the details:
The Super Run takes place September 6th, 2014 at Gallup Park in Ann Arbor. Registration for the 5K is $25 and they also have a 1K kids run for $10. Included with your registration is an authentic superhero cape, “I’m Super” temp tattoo, and a silicone awareness bracelet.
I have a discount code as well that gets you $5 Off any adult registration! Just use code: SUPERNERFHERDER5 when registering to redeem!
The Super Run partners with local charities to raise awareness and funds for their cause. For Ann Arbor, the Host charity is the Lutheran Social Services of Michigan, who seek every day superheros for the more than 13,000 foster children in Michigan. They have support from their partner charities such as the American Association for Cancer Research and Children’s Hospitals National Foundation. The Super Run acts as a platform for charities to come and raise awareness and funds together at one big event: As opposed to runs that are single cause oriented IE: Cancer, MS, Autism, etc. They aim to join these types of charities so they can all benefit from the event; Supporters will no longer have to choose between cause races (as many people can’t afford several races, its expensive!) but can attend one event and support multiple causes at a time.
They also have a vendor area, where businesses, groups, artists, crafters, etc can come and set up in a 10×10 area to support the causes and the community within them, while also promoting themselves. The 10×10 space is free to vendors as long as they provide a family-friendly activity or giveaway. If you or anyone you know is interested in becoming a vendor/sponsor please see their sponsor page for details.
And now for the **GIVEAWAY**
