Lancaster-based digital publishing group Nxtbook Media is inviting the community to run, walk – or crawl – in support of local charities. The inaugural Nxtbook-It … and Crawl takes place next Thursday, August 28, featuring a one-mile run through Lancaster County Park followed up by a pub crawl in the city’s northeast quadrant.
The “book-it” part is a one-mile race featuring six heats including a “fun” walk/run and competitive groupings based on age. The top three finishers in each grouping are awarded prizes. Registration starts at 4:30 p.m. with the first heat beginning at 6 p.m.
Registration for the “crawl” – which features stops at six Lancaster city bars – begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Cork & Cap (located at 480 New Holland Ave. in the Cork Factory Hotel), which also serves as the first stop of the evening.
The crawl officially begins at 6 p.m. at the Cork & Cap, with stops at Quips Pub, Lancaster Brewing Co., Stubby’s Bar & Grille, Rumplebrewskin’s and concludes at The 915 Cafe. It’s recommended that you allow about 30-60 minutes at each stop, but hey, we’re all adults here. Take your time, hurry up, get a head start on the group…it’s up to you! Drink specials and giveaways are included throughout the crawl.
Registration for the race is $25, with the option to add the crawl registration for an additional $10. But if you’re not feeling particularly competitive this time of year (or, if you’re like us, aren’t remotely close to being anything slightly resembling “in shape”…), we’re happy to report that you can register for the crawl only ($10) without running.
