BE A WINTER WARRIOR! (We have some new tricks and events up our sleeves for this year's 2016/17 season!)
When the weather outside is frightful, let Fleet Feet Sports Fort Wayne help keep you active and motivated this winter! You’ll accrue points, earn prizes, meet people, and enjoy a fun time!
The Winter Warrior Program is for everyone, all ages and all ability levels—walkers and runners, beginners and seasoned veterans, recreational exercisers, and fitness fanatics—we don't care. We just want YOU! There are a few rules, but this rule is the most important rule: NO WHINING ABOUT THE COLD!
The Winter Warrior Program starts with a Kick-Off Party on Tuesday, December 13th at 6:30 p.m. and concludes with a Winter Warrior 5K Fun Run on Saturday February 4th at 8 a.m. There will be a Winter Warrior Ceremony after the Winter Warrior 5K Fun Run at Fleet Feet Sports Fort Wayne at 9:30 a.m. to crown the Winter Warrior Champion!
Informational Meetings: Monday, November 21st at 6:30 pm and Monday, December 5th at 6:30 p.m. at Fleet Feet Sports Fort Wayne 5661 Coventry Lane , Fort Wayne , Indiana 46804.
WHAT DOES THE WINTER WARRIOR PROGRAM INCLUDE?
All of this for the cost of $75 per aspiring Winter Warrior!
The Winter Warrior Program is based on the amount of points accrued by participating in workouts.
At the conclusion of the program, the person with the most points will be deemed THE WINTER WARRIOR! You’ll have the honor and privilege of having your name on the Winter Warrior Cup. You will also receive a Special Fleet Feet Sports Prize Award. Although the Cup will be kept on display at Fleet Feet Sports for all to see, you will also have the opportunity to hoist the Cup after your win and drink sparkling wine from it!
WHAT ARE THE TIMES OF THE WINTER WARRIOR PROGRAM?
o Tuesdays at 6:30 P.M. – Fun Run / or Mystery Workout. (You never really know what type of fun thing (Yoga for Runners, CrossFit, cross country skiing, holiday light run/walk, etc.) we have planned for you. Nervous? Don’t worry about it. Your Winter Warrior Guide promises that this will be a fun time for everyone. You never know when we’ll have a local fitness celebrity at the store keeping things exciting for the evening.)
o Thursdays at 6:30 P.M. – Happy Hour Run/Walk. or Mystery Workout (This is a 3 mile run/walk that is followed by beers at a local pub/brewery. We may have a surprise event on a Friday to help you earn extra points. Are you able to guess what it may be?)
o Saturdays at 8 A.M. – Carb Run/Walk/Mystery Workout. (This is a 3 to 6 mile run/walk around Fort Wayne. There is always the option to increase the distance. Why do we call it a Carb Run/Walk? Good question. We occasionally like to eat these things, so there will be the opportunity to eat “awesomely delicious” carbs on Saturdays.)
