Hansgiving Fun Run Honors FootWorks Founder

Hans and Laurie Huseby are the couple responsible for opening FootWorks in 1976, which is today Miami’s unofficial running headquarters. Today, their efforts have led to initiatives such as assisting in the founding of the Miami Runners Club to overseeing major events like the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run Series.

Sadly, Hans passed away on Thanksgiving weekend in 2014. The following year, we ran on Thanksgiving in his honor and it’s a tradition we intend to continue through the Hansgiving Fun Run. What started as an event with just twenty participants is today a much larger one where hundreds have participated.

The Hansgiving Fun Run is a 3.8-mile run or walk beginning on Hans Huseby Run. This is SW 57 Court on Sunset Drive on the west side of FootWorks. There is no fee to participate but we are limiting participation to observe social distancing measures. Hence, we are asking that anyone interested RSVP.

If you’re interested in participating in Hansgiving Fun Run, we’re proud to announce the run is happening again this year on November 26, 2020, at 7:00 AM! Please make sure to wear a face covering before and after you run or walk.

Besides this run, remember that we’re still running the Festiv 5K virtual runs, including the upcoming Happy Thanksgiving Virtual 5K.
