Hansgiving Fun Run

Hansgiving Fun Run

Hans, who passed away on Thanksgiving weekend in 2014, owned the FootWorks Running store along with his wife Laurie. In 2015, we ran from the store on Thanksgiving in his honor and want to continue the tradition. We invite you to join us in remembering Hans and run or walk on Thanksgiving morning from the corner of Sunset and 57 Ct (adjacent to Spris Pizza). The City of South Miami commemorated Hans by naming 57 Ct Hans Huseby Run. We think there’s no better spot to meetup for the morning’s run or walk.

The 3.8 mile run or walk begins on Hans Huseby Run. This is 57 Ct on Sunset Dr on the west side of FootWorks.

Don’t forget to wear your TeamFootWorks shirts for the group photo prior to the run.

• Every Thanksgiving at 7:00am
• Starts at the corner of Sunset and 57 Ct (Hans Huseby Run)
• FREE parking until 9:00am!

We’d love for you to fundraise or donate on our behalf. TeamFootworks is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization. With your support we are able to produce endurance running and walking events and training programs which spread fitness education and involve the community in physical activity. Donate or fundraise $5 to earn the Hansmon achievement. Hansmon is Hans’ self-portrait. The resemblance is uncanny. Once earned, you’ll find the Hansmon in your Fundraiser Account and your Fundraising Page. Click here to create your fundraising account. Thank you for your cooperation.

This has traditionally been a free event. However, Covid has hit event production particularly hard. It’s been a couple of years since our last full race. To help us recover some of our expenses, we’re charging a nominal $10 entry fee.

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