Out Run CF - Gobble, Wobble!

A few times a year, the Rock CF Foundation and CysticLife hold an event called Out Run CF -- the next one is taking place on Thanksgiving.

In case you missed out last time, or need a refresher, here is how it works. Anyone and everyone is invited to participate: Fibros, Cysters, parents, spouses, friends, extended family, you name it! Participants will find a route near their house. Then on November 22nd, 2012, EVERYONE will lace up their sneakers and hit the pavement in their Out Run CF shirt (Each registrant will receive a t-shirt unique to this fall’s race from us in the mail).
No distance is too long, or too short. YOU pick YOUR mileage. 1 mile? 5K? 10K? 10 miles? Half Marathon? Marathon? It’s up to you! Nothing is too fast or too slow YOU pick YOUR speed. We just want to get the entire CF community out of their houses and into their running shoes on the same day, for the same cause.
Registrants can blog about their training, ask questions, and share tips on CysticLife.org. We want the entire site to be plastered with talk of exercise, running, and encouragement. On race day, we want people to post their times and their experiences. Let’s make this Virtual Race even BIGGER than the first one! Let’s make it the biggest race the community, and the world, has ever seen!!

So here again are the hard facts:

Who: Everyone
What: Outrun CF Virtual Race held by Rock CF Foundation and CysticLife
When: November 22, 2012 -- Thanksgiving Day
Where: Anywhere
Why: Because anyone can run—whether it’s for a minute or a marathon! Together we can Out Run CF.

The awesome shirt that goes with this Out Run CF event.
Each event they have a new shirt - which I've worn in all of my
5Ks so far...looks like I'll have a nice new one to support CF
during my local 5Ks! :)

How : Register at http://www.active.com/running/detroit-mi/gobble-wobble--out-run-cf-virtual-race-2012

It's a great *and easy* way to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. If you register by November 1st (Thursday), you'll receive the awesome shirt in time for race day! If you register after Thursday, you'll still get a shirt, but it's not guaranteed to be there by the 22nd. The shirt is also "A4 Adult Cooling Performance" shirts, so actual workout material! Sweet! Any questions, check out Out Run CF on Facebook or talk to me.

Finally, if you're my Facebook friend and you decide to Out Run CF on Thanksgiving, please tag me in your pictures! And if you live near by, maybe we can run together. :) I'd love to see how many of my friends are helping support the CF Foundation in a few weeks!! Thanks!!


  1. Thank you SO MUCH for spreading the word cyster!!!

    1. You're welcome! I love these events because they're so easy! :-) I'm interested on hearing how much you guys raise for CF through these.

  2. I missed the last one so I might have to pull out the stroller and do this one!
