Run Away to the Bay is one of the premier races in the Fox Valley and is set for April 22nd, 2017, This 55-mile, 11-leg team relay race takes runners all the way from Menomonee Park in Oshkosh to downtown Green Bay. Run Away to the Bay was founded by Run Away Shoes store owner Ross McDowell after participating at the Fall 50 in Door County for several years. He realized there was nothing like it locally in the spring, and it would be a great way to get runner’s excited again after winter. This is quickly becoming a cant-miss event!
The Original, and first of its kind in Green Bay! The 3.1 mile (5K) course for runners and walkers alike is set in downtown Green Bay – AT NIGHT! In the summer, runners and walkers travel the streets of Green Bay while partying the night away with music, glow sticks and DJ stations along the way! 2017 TBD
