Fort Collins Comic Con
Kessel Runners 2019
Are you ready to run!? Catch all the details on what to expect below!

This week has TWO fun activities, one on TUESDAY MORNING and one on WEDNESDAY NIGHT. Read on to find out more!

This Tuesday’s practice run takes off at 5:30PM

We'll be practicing our pacing and breathing Tuesday at 5:30 PM!

Where: Meet at the Spring Creek Trail behind Dungeons & Drafts. Parking is also available at The Fort Collins Club just east of D&D.
Tuesday's Practice Run
Course: We're going WEST this time to Stuart Street bridge.

Total distance: 1.5 miles - run for 90 seconds, walk for 2 minutes.

Plan on about 25 minutes with a 5-minute warm-up.

Check In: Stop at the registration table so we can check you in.

Weather: We’ll have a mild evening in the high 40's, but since this is Colorado, check the forecast 15 minutes before you head out and dress appropriately - since it might be getting dark, make sure to have something reflective on!

What to Wear: Breathable, sweat-wicking fabrics such as polyester are preferable. Loose clothing that you can easily breathe in is best. Layers are key! You will be able to leave your jackets and water bottles at the check-in table so feel free to come bundled up.
Shoes: Wear comfortable running shoes (no, Chucks and Vans are not appropriate footwear) that are already broken in. If you have new shoes, break them in today with a walk! We don't want any new shoes slowing you down with blistered heels!

Course Rules: The trails are public and popular. There will be bikes, skateboards, and dogs coming and going around you. Be courteous and safe by taking up no more than half of the trail. Passing bikes may ring a bell or yell "On your left!" when passing. Take a moment to make sure you’re in your lane. Stay aware of your surroundings, and leave your headphones at home.

Course Elements: None, this time - it's a practice run!

Your Mission: Have fun, practice your pacing and breathing.

On TUESDAY from 10 AM - 3 PM join us at Fort Collins Museum of Discovery to get chased around the Big Backyard dressed as a Pokemon!

RSVP & select shifts at:

Get chased around Museum of Discovery's Big Backyard dressed as a Pokemon!

Kids will have pokeballs and if they tag you they will get a trading card from you - when they "catch them all" they'll get a prize. Small groups of kids will rotate through (which gives a bit of downtime between).

March 19, 10:00am -3:00pm

Hour shifts, or split the hour & do a shorter 30 min shift. Multiple volunteers needed each shift! Please arrive 10-15min before your shift for a quick orientation!

Simple t-shirt, headband, and character sign costume to borrow for your shift provided!
