Meet Me Downtown 5K and Festival of Miles
June 5- 7, 2020
The first leg of the popular Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown, TMC Meet Me Downtown has raised more than $150,000 for local charities over the years. This race has become a city-wide block party, featuring a festival of miles (including a free children’s mile), a beer garden, food trucks, a beneficiary and vendor expo, rock n’ roll bands, and an awesome after-party at iconic Hotel Congress. This year’s virtual event will be a little different since we can’t gather together but we will do our best to create a fun filled month of Instagram and Facebook activities around training and highlighting our local businesses.
Packet pick-up will be on Friday, June 5, from 10:00-5:00 PM at the Running Shop. We will have swag bags pre-packed to make it more efficient (we hope). You can drive up, grab your bag, and go! Or park, walk up, and do some shopping at the Running Shop.
Our second packet pick-up opportunity will be on Saturday, June 6, from 5:00-7:00 PM at Maynard’s Market in downtown. Maynard’s Market and Hotel Congress are both offering some great food and drink specials.
If you are out of town the weekend of June 5-7, you can pick up your race bib, shirt and medal at the Running Shop through the end of June.
