The Big Boss Run Club held its first group run back on May 10th, 2011. Organized by a group of friends with a shared passion for running and craft beer, Jon Odgers, Win Bassett, Greg Mulholland, and Ben Gaddy created what has become one of the most popular brewery supported run clubs in the Triangle. This Tuesday, May 13th at 6:30pm the club will celebrate it’s 3rd Anniversary with a special celebration including raffle prizes, food trucks, great beer, and of course plenty of running with friends.
As usual Jon Odgers, also know as @beerandracing, will be there Tuesday night to kickoff the group run at 7pm. The run offers a choice of 3,4,5 or 6 mile routes that can be easily adjusted to the distance of your choice. To mark the special occasion the evening will also include free raffle drawings for cool swag from Big Boss and a gift certificate for the Great Outdoor Provision Company. The race director for the Raleigh City of Oaks Marathon will be on hand with a special one night special registration offer and The nOg Run Club will also be selling raffle tickets and taking donations for The Runners Remembered Fund. This special fund was set up to benefit the families of the runners who passed away racing the recent Rock ‘n’ Roll Raleigh Marathon.
In addition to the normal $3 Tuesday special and the full Big Boss lineup, the 3rd anniversary celebration will feature a special draft selection pulled from the Big Boss cellar for runners to enjoy! Three great local food trucks will be at the Brewery Tuesday night offering food for sale to hungry runners. Trucks scheduled are Deli-icious Truck with their menu featuring sandwiches, vegetarian dishes and other healthy options. They will be joined by Dump Pho King Truck serving pho and dumplings plus Iced Cupcakes with dessert.
I have been going to the Big Boss Rub Club for three years now and I credit the fun atmosphere of this group with helping me discover the friendly running culture of the Triangle. This is a great group of people that is welcoming to runners of all levels. Whether you are new to running or an experienced runner looking for a group of fun people to run with, I highly recommend you stop by Big Boss for a Tuesday evening run soon. See you on the Greenway!
