Saturday, September 25th | Westport

    CALLING ALL UNDERACHIEVERS – trust us, you want to answer this call. This event is perfect for you!

     

    We’re heading back to Westport!

     

    The 0.5k – The Underachiever’s Run… if you can even call it a run. This event takes you across 0.31 miles – 1,640 feet – 19,685 inches. It’s unlike any other run (and more like a walk to the next bar)!

    Don’t Miss the Next “run” in Westport on September 25th! Details Coming Soon!

      In May, we had 300 amazing “runners” at the 0.5k Underachiever’s Run! The event started at Parlors with a pizza party before “running” to Grinders, where participants celebrated finishing the race with donuts and champagne. Thanks to our sponsors Truly, Dogfish Head, Sam Adams, Sacred Roots and Betty Rae’s!

       

      We can’t wait for the next “race” which will be back in Westport on Saturday, September 25th! Tickets launch soon so stay tuned.

      Pizza, Champagne and Donuts – Say What?!?

        The 0.5k – The Underachiever’s Run will start off with a pizza party at Kelly’s Westport Inn. There, you can carb load for the “big race” and “warm-up” before the “run”. At race time, you’ll be sent off with a “boom” to Off Key and Throwback.

         

        Don’t worry, we will keep you hydrated along the way with a water station. Fear you may need first aid? Don’t worry, we have that covered too. The kit may or may not contain only lollipops, but hey, it will be there!

         

        Upon finishing this clearly physically and mentally taxing 0.5k, you’ll celebrate crossing the finish line with – what else but champagne and donuts! Oh and some victory music because what’s an after-party without it!

        Get Those Tickets!
