bRUNch Running Combines Fitness and Eating -- You Know, If You're Into That Kind of Thing
Usually, our Sunday routine involves some variation of waking up with a mild hangover and rolling out of bed to seek out greasy or starchy food -- preferably in a location with lots of natural sunlight and more booze. This is the whole point of brunch.
bRUNch Running/Facebook If you like your brunch with a side of exercise, you'll love this idea.
But for those of you with more productive Sunday aspirations, here's something you might appreciate: a social running club that meets on Sunday mornings for a run followed by brunch. It's called bRUNch Running, and it will return to Phoenix in September for a second season.
The idea is that every week from September to mid-October, the running group will meet at a different metro Phoenix restaurant. Participants will have the choice to partake in either a 5K or 10K run, which will conclude at the restaurant. Afterward, everyone gets to enjoy food and a couple of drinks.
Phoenix's bRUNch Running series kicks off Sunday, September 7, with an event at OHSO Eatery + nanoBrewery. Check in will start at 9:15 a.m. and the run will start at 9:30 a.m. Runners and walkers of all levels are welcome to join and tickets cost $25 in advance or $30 at the door. The cost of the ticket covers the run, an entrée, and two drinks.
More events will be held at the following restaurants:
- True Food Kitchen Scottsdale Quarter (Sun., September 14)
- ChopShop Tempe (Sun., September 21)
- House Brassiere (Sun., September 28)
- OHSO Distillery (Sun., October 5 )
- SanTan Brewing Company (Sun., October 12)
Space is limited and tickets can be purchased on the bRUNch Running website.
