EVENT PREVIEW: Get energized with adidas, the BAA, and Boston RunBase!

energyrunlogoWhen you’re sitting in traffic or caught up in everyday life, it’s easy to forget what a historic and scenic city Boston is. It’s important to take a step back every once in a while and appreciate what is right at our fingertips – and we’ve created an event to help you do just that!

On Saturday, August 8, the Boston Marathon adidas RunBase will host ENERGYrunBoston [CLICK TO RSVP]. This fun run will take you on a social media scavenger hunt through some of Boston’s landmarks with the opportunity to win some free stuff.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS: show up at RunBase [855 Boylston Street] with some friends. We’ll give you the opportunity to grab a pair of demo shoes to wear-test. Get into teams of 3-4 people, and make sure at least one of you has a smartphone with Facebook and Twitter.

We’ll give everyone the running route – it’s a roughly 3.5 mile loop that incorporates FENWAY PARK, the PRUDENTIAL REFLECTING POOL, SWAN BOATS, and the BOSTON MARATHON FINISH LINE. At each of these landmarks, take a fun pic with your team and upload it using #energyrunbos. We’ll select the most creative/most ridiculous photo for each site, and the winners will get some prizes from adidas Running!

Don’t miss this opportunity to have a little fun with your friends and frolic around the city on a beautiful Saturday morning! [CLICK HERE] to RSVP to the event.

We’ll see you next weekend!
