Once again Fleet Feet Fort Wayne is asking you to challenge yourself and push your own limits. The Summer Solstice Sun Run Challenge includes a sunrise run at or around 6am and a sunset run at 6:30pm held at Fleet Feet, on Summer Solstice Tuesday June 21st.
The twist is that the goal is to run your sunset 5K faster than your sunrise 5K. Are you going to join us?
When: Tuesday June 21st
Sunrise Run: 6:00am on your own. ( Document proof of the run)
Sunset Run: 6;30pm at Fleet Feet Fort Wayne
Distance: 5K at sunrise, 5K at sunset
If you complete the challenge by running the sunset run and the sunrise run, you will win a free Sun Run Challenge T-shirt. The fastest evening finishers (1st male and 1st female) will receive Fleet Feet gift certificates.

Celebrate the first day of Summer!
Celebrate the longest day of the year! Join Fleet Feet & Saucony for our second annual Summer Solstice Sun Run Challenge.
The Challenge: runners/walkers can celebrate the 15 hours of daylight on June 21st by first running/walking at or near sunrise on June 21st on your own (take a photo, you must have proof) and then join us at Fleet Feet that evening for an evening sunset run at 6:30pm.
(Yeah, yeah we know sunset is not until 9:11pm that day but it is a "Tuesday" and some of us have to get to bed and get ready for work the next day!)
Runners/ Walkers who do the challenge will receive a special commemorative Sun Run Challenge Champion shirt for completing the Challenge.
All runners and walkers may also just join us for the evening run only if they so choose. But only those who have proof of running both AM and PM will receive the shirt!
And........The Bar is Open!! All runners and walkers will be rewarded however with a Malibu Sunrise Craft Cocktail or other S
summer adult beverage or mocktail after completing the evening run. We will have a professional bartender mixing up summer drinks to get you ready for all those summer celebrations.
Festivities will also include the launch of the Limited Edition Saucony Soulstice Shoe Collection. Our Saucony Rep Pete Heenan will be here with shoe demos and to talk about the new Saucony Soulstice Collection. He will also be providing a special gift with purchase of any Saucony product.
