Hansgiving Fun Run

Hansgiving Fun Run

Hans, who passed away on Thanksgiving weekend in 2014, owned FootWorks along with his wife Laurie. In 2015, we ran on Thanksgiving in his honor and want to continue the tradition. There were just about 20 of us back then. The run swelled to 435 in 2016 and 460 in 2017! We since been consistently drawing a huge crowd in the mid-400s.

      Hello Steve! This is a fun run, not an official race. Bring the kids and have them run as long as they can.
