Run Through the Holidays

At Fleet Feet we love the holidays. They provide an opportunity to get together with friends and family, and engage in one of our favorite activities: eating. We take any (and every) opportunity to host an event where you can get together with members of the local running community for a good workout and good snacks. This holiday season Fleet Feet Davis is serving up the following activities and events.

HOLIDAY GIFT REGISTRY

We not only love working here, we love to shop at Fleet Feet, and we hope you do, too. Every year we offer the opportunity for you to help out your Santa by registering for gifts at Fleet Feet Davis. All you need to do is come to Fleet Feet, grab a complimentary gift registry card, and start shopping. We’ll help you keep track of your favorite clothes, shoes, and accessories, and write them down on your registry card. When your friends and family come in later to shop for you, we’ll pull your wish list, help them find your desired items, and (new this holiday season) give them a free gift for using the registry. You get the items that you really want and your Santa gets a free gift. Everyone wins!

 

WAFFLE UP! POST THANKSGIVING WAFFLE BREAKFAST

Friday, November 26th at 8:00am

We kick off the season the day after Thanksgiving with our second annual Waffle Workout co-sponsored by Nike. Work off those turkey day calories by joining the Fleet Feet staff for a short run or walk workout around Downtown Davis and the arboretum. Afterward, enjoy hot complimentary waffles made to order, fruit, juice, and Peet’s coffee, all whipped up by our expert waffle makers. Limited edition Fleet Feet “Waffle Up!” Nike technical tees will be available to anyone who brings 8 cans of food for STEAC (while supplies last). Feed yourself as you help feed our neighbors in need…

What’s black Friday without a shopping deal? After your hot waffle breakfast, take 10% off any five accessories you can fit into a stocking. We’ll loan you the stockings, you pick the accessories. Shoes and apparel excluded. Offer good Friday, November 26th only.

To quote one of our past training group participants, “The training program, the fellow runners (the fact that I’ve always found someone nice running my pace) and the top motivated and encouraging trainers made all the difference.” Visit www.fleetfeetdavis.com for more information on training groups.

JINGLE BELL RUN 5K AND 1-MILE

December 11, 2010

Get ready for the holidays with a family running event. The Jingle Bell Run 5K and 1-mile run/walk takes place in South Davis, and provides a lovely tour of the South Davis Greenbelts. The Jingle Bell Run benefits the Short Term Emergency Aid Committee (STEAC), at a time of year when donations are much needed. Entrants into the 5K and 1-mile events are encouraged to bring canned goods as an additional donation for the STEAC food pantry. For more information, or to volunteer, visit www.davisjinglebellrun.com.

We love our holiday traditions, and hope to be able to share them with you!
