Introducing the Chili Run, Coming in January 2014

Chili, beer and a brisk two-mile run. What more could you ask for?

chili runI kid you not, I’m sitting here writing this blog post while I cram my face full of heaping spoonfuls of warm, spicy turkey-and-bean chili. Yes, I. Love. Chili.

If you love it, too, you’ll want to take note of this: a new race in our area called the Chili Run. It’s put on by local race-management company, Good Day for a Run, which also organizes the Run the Vineyards series (running + wine = AWESOME), so this is sure to be a great race. The Chili Run will happen on January 26th at Carolina Blue, a restaurant just over the bridge in Pitman, New Jersey, which happens to be the same starting point as the Totally Awesome 80s Run I completed last year—also a Good Day for a Run race. Are you sensing a theme here?




The Chili Run is a brisk two-mile jaunt, after which each runner will be greeted with a bowl of chili and beer. Trophies will be given out to the top winners, and chip timing will determine age and team-competition winners. There will also be prizes for the runner wearing the ugliest sweater, as determined by a panel of judges. All runners will  walk away with a commemorative Chili Run beanie—Hey, it'll be cold out there, people!—and post-race music and drink specials at Carolina Blue are a given.

$29, January 26 at 10 a.m., Carolina Blue Restaurant, 692 Lambs Road, Pitman, New Jersey.

    There is also a chilly run in Haverford. On the trails at the Reserve. Chilly and Long Trail beer. 2nd year. Great fun. Come see the new, green Community Recreation and Environment Center.
