Event Details

What
A light hearted event for a serious cause—raising money for COVID-19 relief and environmental preservation. After the 'run' team Field Mag will host an informal happy hour and live raffle with over $2,000 worth of gear from our awesome sponsors to give away.
Why
To bring disconnected outdoor communities together (at a safe distance), to get our arses moving again, and to support Food Bank For New York City and the Sierra Club. Because COVID-19 is the most urgent threat facing us today, but climate change is the biggest threat tomorrow, and every day thereafter.
When
Saturday May 9th at 3pm ET BYOB :)
How
Zoom, of course. Purchase an e-ticket or limited-edition T-shirt and receive an exclusive invite to run the run. All participants over 18 are automatically also entered into our raffle, to be held live, post run. Don’t forget to wear your best kit—and get those Zoom backgrounds ready.
Who
Anyone & everyone! Spread the word and help make a difference!
