Join us for a Saturday morning 10K followed by beers at D9 Brewing (first beer on us)!
D9 has partnered with Whales for Wishes to organize the first “10K for $10K Fun Run.” The goal is to raise $10,000 to benefit the annual Whales for Wishes charity event being held at Resident Culture Brewing later this year.
Come out on Saturday, February 23 at 8:00 AM for a 10K fun run followed by beers at D9 Brewing. Your first beer is on Whales for Wishes and a portion of all subsequent beers go towards W4W as well. The Spice Wagon food truck will be available on site!
You’re welcome to come run as an individual, but we’re encouraging people to create teams and take part in our team fundraising competition. The team that raises the most money will receive some special prizes and bragging rights for a year.
There is no entry fee to run in the D9 10K for $10K Fun Run, however we’re suggesting a $20 donation for individual runners (which can be made through official Whales for Wishes donation page). Teams are encouraged to enter our fundraising challenge.
RUNNING TOGETHER IS MORE FUN
You’re welcome to run alone, but we’re encouraging people to create teams and raise money before the race on February 23. Donations can be made online before the event or at the event itself. When making a team donation, make sure to place your team name in the “How would you like your name displayed?” box in the online donation form! That’s how we will do the final tally. The team that raises the most will get a custom-printed running shirt with their team name, special recognition at the Whales for Wishes event as a sponsor, and bragging rights for a year.
The 10K starts and ends at D9 Brewing Company located in Cornelius, NC. Race kicks off at 8:30 AM sharp!
Doors & Registration: 8:00 AM
Race Begins: 8:30 AM
Taproom Open: 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
We’ll have a table setup inside the brewery taproom starting at 8:00 AM to check folks in. Head there and someone will hand you your bib and pins.
We’ll head out at 8:30 AM and by the time we get back the Spice Wagon food truck will be on site serving up some delicious food to go with our beers.
When you finish the run head back to the check in table to get your drink ticket. Just hand it to the bartender and your beer will be on us!
We can’t control the weather but that won’t stop us. We’re doing this thing, rain or shine! Make sure to dress for potential rain and the cold, though!
This is a fun run so please don’t worry if you’re a slow runner. We’re doing this to get a run in and have an excuse to drink some beers for an awesome cause.
The course is 6.46 miles with 238 feet of elevation gain.
We’ll be intermittently placing small orange cones and using washable spray paint to mark the route and designate the two turnaround points.
If you have any questions about the 10K for $10K Fun Run please send Mark an email. If your question is specific to the event venue or D9 Brewing, please contact them directly.
Whales for Wishes is an annual bottle share and rare beer raffle put on by TheBeerExchange.io that raises money for Make-A-Wish Central and Western NC. The goal for the 5th annual event is to raise $50,000, and is being held on April 7 at Resident Culture Brewing Company.
