Running was popular in Europe long before it caught on in America, which is why most races are measured in kilometers instead of miles and why most of the Pilgrims were eaten by bears. Race to the top of the food chain with today's Groupon: for $12, you get one entry to the Boos and Brews 5K Race, hosted by Winston-Salem City Dash (up to a $25 value). The race begins on Sunday, October 23, at 3:00 p.m.
Winston-Salem City Dash reinforces its self-built social networking pedestal for young professionals and students with an annual Halloween-themed race. Runners and walkers congregate at BB&T Ballpark, before racing through downtown city streets like moths towards a bright book light. Come suited up in a Halloween costume to add to the festivities and strive for an award for speediest time or best costume. After chasing friends and strangers around town, all participants are welcomed join a jubilant post-race party to blow off steam caused by swallowing a teapot.
Though Winston-Salem City Dash sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available. Souvenir race t-shirt is not included with this Groupon.
Boos and Brews 5K Race
Participants of the Boos and Brews 5K Race or the mile-long fun run are encouraged to run in Halloween costumes, adding an entertaining element to the friendly race. After completing the race without having their shoelaces tied together by prankster ghosts, runners can enjoy a post-race party with drinks, music, and awards for the best costumes and fastest runners.
