Thursday Adventure Fun Runs
Road Runner Sports 43 S. McClintock Dr. Tempe, 85281 (480) 968-2022 Every third Thursday
So, it may not get you the Olympic gold, but this run is a little more than fun – prizes are offered too. On the third Thursday of every month at 6 p.m. at Road Runner Sports, participants of all ages run or walk to various checkpoints to collect prizes and raffle tickets. The checkpoints consist of a mixture of restaurants, bars and stores, where in return you can receive gift cards or up to thousands of dollars in running gear. After the race the 21 and older runners can grab a free beer (!) and socialize with the other runners while a DJ performs. Even better: the admission is free.
