Description

Benefitting US Veterans Corps Toys for Lil' Troops


We're proud to bring back one of Fit & Able's newest holiday races: the Fortnight Before Christmas! The Fortnight Before Christmas is part of Fit & Able's Holiday race series. Choose between a virtual 1 Mile, 2 Mile, or 3 Mile race and of course young kids are welcome to participate with parents too!


Although we had planned for a great live race this year we are going VIRTUAL! That means wherever you are - near or far - you can participate in a great race to support an amazing organization. All you need to do is run wherever you want and submit your times online! It's really fun and super easy!


All runners will get a Fortnight Before Christmas knit hat and Fortnight souvenir pint glass. Since there isn't a race day packet pickup all participants have the option for their packets to be shipped or get their packet at the post-race party and toy drive at Fortnight on December 6th. The first 100 to register (for those 21+) will get their first pint on us! *Only one drink ticket per adult participant! Each packet can hold up to 1 shirt (or other giveaway), pint glasses cannot be shipped. All packets will be mailed out after the event.


Scroll down for more details about how you can win great prizes and swag by referring people to sign up with you!


Come join us for a unique race and enjoy some great beers at Fortnight Brewery!

Events: Everyone is welcome to participate!  All events are now virtual so there are no chip-timed results.

Since there is no pre-race or race day packet pickup all packets for purchased shirts or medals must be shipped for $5 per packet or retrieved at a curbside pickup. Packets will be mailed out after the event. Each packet can hold up to 1 shirt (or other giveaway), pint glasses cannot be shipped.
