There are a lot of things I love about Arizona. The weather and the desert landscape are atop my list. But I also love all the fun, outdoor activities the city has. We have IRONMAN Arizona, Pat’s Run and The Color Run. But there’s one fun activity that I haven’t done yet that I’m really looking forward to.
Tempe Road Runner Sports Adventure Run is a really fun, 60-minute scavenger run. There are prizes, giveaways, music, raffles and free beer. It’s every third Thursday at the Tempe Road Runner Sports at Tempe Marketplace.
Sounds run, right? All you have to do is register. Sign in is usually from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. or you can register online on their website. From 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., you have the scavenger hunt. At sign in, you’ll get a pen, paper and a Ziploc bag for your tickets. Right before 7:00 p.m., they’ll unveil the map of all the stores you need to run to. Once it’s time to go, you run around to all the checkpoints, as fast as you can, collecting raffle tickets. You only have 60 minutes, so plan your route accordingly. Once the scavenger is over, you use your tickets to win prizes, such as shoe discounts, nutritional products, after the race.
If you’re looking for a fun way to get some exercise and win free stuff, without a doubt, try the Adventure Run. Nothing is more exciting than adding a little adventure to your life.
