Akita .05K at the Fall Endeavor

You don't want to miss this event

Mark your calendars for a unique and exciting event on October 20 to raise scholarship funds for Camp Akita. The Endeavor Brewing Company in Grandview, owned by former camp counselor and church member Scott Talmage, will be hosting The Fall Endeavor, an event with all proceeds benefiting Camp Akita, and featuring the never before seen, Akita .05K.

The Fall Endeavor is a block party at The Endeavor Brewing Company, Delashmut Ave, which runs perpendicular to 5th Ave, will be blocked off to contain our race and after party. So after you finish your “run,” you can enjoy a beer or craft soda, listen to live music, and recount the harrowing experience of your first .05K. It’s like taking the running out of a 5K and just enjoying the after party, race shirt and other perks.

What is the Akita .05K?

The Akita .05K is a fun social event and a great opportunity to raise money to help send kids to camp.

You might be asking yourself, what is a .05K? Good question, because although they seem to be gaining some popularity around the United States, we had never heard of one either. The Akita .05K fun “run” is 164 feet of race course designed for everyone to finish. You can run, walk, skip, piggyback, moonwalk or wheelbarrow race with a friend.

It wouldn’t be an Akita event without a few surprises, as well. You can expect a dunk tank, games, and lots of excitement (including, but not limited to, people wearing referee jerseys and whistles to make sure all of “runners” follow course guidelines). Not feeling up to the .05K? Come out and cheer on everyone else as they complete the course.

The good times start on Saturday, October 20 at 1 pm, and end at 7 pm. The Endeavor Brewing Company is located at 909 West 5th Avenue.
