The phrase "slow and steady wins the race" demonstrates the wisdom of completing tasks carefully—provided that you are racing against an arrogant rabbit. Pace yourself against humans instead with today's Groupon to Run for the Dream in Williamsburg. Choose between the following options:
- For $22, you get one registration, which includes a cotton T-shirt, for the 8K run/walk on Saturday, May 21, at 8 a.m. (up to a $45 value).
- For $40, you get one registration, which includes a technical T-shirt, for the half marathon on Sunday, May 22, at 7:30 a.m. (up to an $80 value).
Run for the Dream is the inaugural race benefiting An Achievable Dream, a K–12 school dedicated to supporting low-income children, and Wounded Warriors, assisting the severely wounded of the armed forces. Altruistic sprinters can wear their hearts on the sleeves of a commemorative T-shirt as they race through Colonial Williamsburg, down iconic Duke of Gloucester Street, and finish at William and Mary's Zable Stadium. After registering online, runners can pick up their race packets and shirts at the race expo, which takes place at the Woodlands Conference Center. Refresh at the post-race bash in William and Mary's Sunken Garden, where Pierce's Pitt Bar-B-Que slathers on the sauce, beers replenish calories, and live musicians discuss their diet.
All runners receive a finisher medal and kids can get in on the action by signing up for the 14 and under Fun Run.
