Well Tickle my fancy you have found yourself to the Tickle Creek Night Run (Woop, Woop). Here is a run for everyone on Sandy's most well known trail. Gitty up for this night running adventure, you can bet your bottom dollar this will be a fun running event! Ok, ok now to drop old timey talk let's get on with the real biz! So if you like running at night with neon lights, drinking a delicious FREE BEER, listening to live music at a freaking awesome local brewery, then you really are the right place, and this is the race for you.
Hi y'all my name is Anthony Bucci and I have a blog called The Beerded Runner. I have a passion for running, specifically trail running and I very much want to get others into it as well. It is a dream of mine to inspire others to get out and be active by running their first race wether it be their first trail run or first run ever! This is the perfect chance because this beautiful trail is mostly flat and very runable.
The Tickle Creek Trail is the most well known trail located in the city of Sandy and is about a mile and a half each way. This race will be a 4 miler for running the entire trail out and back from Sandy's own local, awesome, micro brewery Bunsen Brewer where there will be live music and FREE BEER for you all at the finish! To make it even more interesting break out those headlamps for this race is being held in the dark at night! So the trail runs through some neighborhoods so please be mindful or else!
The course is made up of four different distances of mostly gravel trail and a bit of pavement on the trail as well as some sidewalk and two road crossings. There is one fairly steep hill that is less than a 1/4 mile that you go down from the brewery and back up before you finish. This is very runable and walkable for people of all skill levels. The trail will have neon lights along the way so you can have your own silent rave dance party going on!
This will be the night after Cinco De Mayo so Neon Cinco De Mayo themed costumes are more than welcomed! There will also be FREE race photos so come in your glowing festive best! There will be awesome prizes for best costumes and giveaways to raffle off! (Must be present to win)
