I will be in Brazil on vacation next week (and posting about running south of the equator, so be sure to check in!) but that does not mean the social runs in Cape May grind to a halt! I recently “met” (through email) a woman named Beth (hi Beth!) who is organizing a super fun sounding event Thursday night, July 5th at 6pm. Combine running, beer and poker and you get The Mug Run! Here’s the scoop:
Everyone meets at The Ugly Mug (26 Washington Street, Cape May, NJ) between 5:15pm and 5:30pm. There you will meet Beth, sign a liability release and get to know your fellow Muggers. At 6pm, the group (with a bicycle chaperone) will leave the Mug and start a 4 mile course, stopping at the C-View Inn, Sea Salt, Carney’s and the Rusty Nail along the way and finishing up back at the Ugly Mug. At each stop, you can choose to have a beer (or not) and will be given a card for your poker hand. At the end of the run, the winning hand gets a prize! Here is the course:
This event costs nothing save for whatever beer/drinks you choose to imbibe and it gives you a chance to meet more runners around the area. You can also make a shirt to really get in the spirit – make sure it says “Mug Run” somewhere on it but otherwise let your imagination run wild!
T o RSVP or for more information, please email Beth: beth1446 at gmail dot com or leave a comment below!
I wish cloning was a little further along so I could be there too! Happy running, drinking and pokering!
