5th Annual RFRC Halloween Costume Party & Run

Dust off your glue gun and get crafting. We're hosting our 5th (yes 5th, can you believe it) annual Halloween party at one of our favorite bars, Daddy Jones in Magoun Square, Somerville.

We'll run a short ~3 miles around Somerville and then party on the patio. Prizes will be awarded to the most creative costumes, including one free ticket to our upcoming Friendsgiving event. Save the date and get crafty, just be sure you can run in your costume!

RUNFELLOW Friendsgiving Relay Run & Brunch

We're changing things up a bit this year. Instead of our usual loop around the river, we're doing a relay run across the Longfellow Bridge.

We'll meet at Abigail's at 9:30am and once everyone arrives, take a group jog over to the "salt & pepper shaker" bridge where we'll split into teams of four. Each person on the team will run three different times, approximately one mile each time when it's your turn to run (running back and forth across the bridge). For those of you wondering, you'll end up running a total of 3 miles, plus a little extra to and from the restaurant.

This relay is not a race and there will be no winner announced, this is simply meant to be a fun way to try something different and make your run a little more interactive. After everyones run their three miles, we'll head back to Abigail's and sit down to a nice Friendsgiving Brunch.

This year we’re excited to announce the addition of an event shirt. Tickets must be purchased by October 21 in order to guarantee yourself a longsleeve shirt. (Sizes are unisex). There is also a ticket option to select no shirt if you so desire.

If you want to celebrate but aren't up for a run, we'd still love to have you. All are welcome (family and friends) as long as you have a ticket, you're in. We need at least 15 more participants in order to host this event, so sign up today and spread the word!

Brunch Buffet Includes:
(1) speciality cocktail and unlimited:
- scrambled eggs
- applewood smoked bacon
- rice & beans (vegan)
- mixed greens with candied quinoa (vegan)
- french toast
- house made biscuits
- fruit salad (vegan)

This event starts and ends at Abigail's Restaurant in Kendall Square. Please be prompt so we can start organizing the teams. We'll conclude the run with a high-five line and then head inside for an all-you-can-eat brunch buffet.

The event will be held rain or shine. We please ask that everyone bring a change of fresh clothes so we can all enjoy this special day without the stench.

Please leave a note at checkout if you have food allergies.
