You've probably heard of people running for a charity or cause. What if that cause is for getting out the vote (GOTV)? Want to help make a difference? Join us!
SPARK Boston is partnering with Boston Road Runners and Athleta Newbury to celebrate Boston's vibrant running community and this year's historic election by hosting a casual run (and walk if there's interest) to GOTV on Wednesday, October 13, at 5:30 p.m.
Come dressed in red, white, or blue, or a combination of them, or join us in your nonpartisan go vote gear! We'll be taking photos and videos to help spread the GOTV message, going for a fun run around the Charles River, serving refreshments afterwards, and giving away neck gaiters (swag!), thanks to a donation from Hoo-Rag.
Plus, there will be a physical therapist on-site for advice on staying injury-free and GOTV material you can take home to spread the word. If you stick around to shop, Athleta is also offering a 20% discount on one item. Please know you can store personal belongings at Athleta while you're out and about getting your #GOTV on. Masks are also required to be worn in the store.
IMPORTANT: All runners must fill out this participant waiver from Boston Road Runners before you take off.
