Good weather and good times wait for all at Saturday's Star Wars themed race, 'May the Course be With You 5K' at Griffin Farms Pumpkin Patch!' Get signed up and join us!

That's right, the FORCE and POWER of Mother Nature will be on our side as we make journey out on the countryside. Yes, there will be RAYS of SUNSHINE GLORY for ALL humans participating.  The mighty thermometer will rise proudly to 65.  But, be warned, you may need leg warmers, as it will be a chilly morning.  As Yoda says, "DO or not do. There is no try!"

Sure., that's a pretty dramatic way to say it will be a nice day.  Hey, we're only talking about a 5K race with a Stars Wars theme!  It's all in celebration of the December 18th release of Stars Wars: The Force Awakens.

Geeks of the movie and those who just want to run a scenic countryside course should make plans NOW or ELSE!  Okay, getting dramatic again.

Join us at Griffin Farms Pumpkin Patch, which is just up the road from Tuscaloosa.  This is the same site as the Insane Inflatable 5K last spring.

Directions to Griffin Farms Pumpkin Patch from Tuscaloosa:

  • I-20/59 towards Birmingham
  • Take Mercedes exit
  • Left onto Hwy 11 North (towards Vance)
  • About a mile up, turn right on Vance Blocton Road
  • 4 miles and turn left onto Griffin Road

You can register day of the race at 8 a.m. and the run will begin at 9 p.m.

All are invited to wear a costume and be up for prizes.  How about WINNING 2 TICKETS for the movie's Tuscaloosa premiere at Cobb Hollywood 16 Cinemas?!  We have the FORCE to make that come to be.  There I go again.

Plus, there will be other prizes.  AND... the first 100 to register get a really cool limited edition race shirt!!

I've talked about nice weather, exclusive premiere movie tickets and fan collectible t-shirts, all great reasons to run, walk, or just hang out with us on Saturday.  Here's the end all to call off the Stormtroopers, a portion of proceeds from this 5K will benefit Toys for Miners.  That's money staying right here in Alabama to help our brothers who have been laid off, right in front of Christmas.

See you there?  Good!
