Run Away Shoes has races in the Fox Valley and events all year long! Read about what we have coming up and click on the race for more information.
This event is one of our two “Bookend” 10ks for the year. Its counterpart, the Houdini 10k, is set to go off in Appleton in November. This Green Bay event, will support 2 local charities, and provide runners of Northeast Wisconsin with a unique distance that attracts runners of all ability levels.
Run Away to the Bay is one of the premier races in the Fox Valley. 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!
This event is one of our two “Bookend” 10ks for the year set to go off on Saturday, November 3, 2018 at 9:00am and is one of the fastest growing races in the Fox Valley, selling out its first two years! Its counterpart, the Badger State 10k, is set to go off in Green Bay in April. This event, starting at Houdini Plaza in Appleton, will support 2 local charities, and provide runners of Northeast Wisconsin with “Houdini-esque” start and finish line entertainment and a unique distance that attracts runners of all ability levels.
This one mile* race is one of those races in the Fox Valley that has become a tradition for many families. It starts prior to the Annual Appleton Christmas Parade at the corner of College Avenue and State Street and proceeds down College Avenue to Drew Street, finishing at City Park.
