Be healthy and full at the Fit Foodie Race Weekend
This weekend is the John Hancock Hosts the Cooking Light and Health – Fit Foodie Race Weekend which debuts delicious gourmet food, a 5K and a 10K race. On October 21st through October 23rd there will be events, races, food, and donations for various charities.
Starting on October 21st, head to the Seaport Village headquarters to “Party With A Purpose”. This event inspires everyone to find a purpose in our everyday lives and to celebrate all that life has to offer. Along with tasty bites, the event encourages all participates to donate old sneakers for the Soles4Souls charity. This Friday kick off will keep you mingling, eating and having a great time all night long.
“The Fit Foodie is more than a race, it’s a celebration of all the delicious things in our life that passionately fuels us.” – Fit Foodie Race Weekend Organization
On Saturday, October 22nd, join thousands in the 10K race at the Embarcadero Marina Park South. Starting bright and early at 7 a.m., the event will feature prices for race winners, fit foodie t-shirts, culinary demonstrations, raffles, and post celebratory drinks.
For those who want a smaller race to join in on the fun, on October 23rd, there will be a 5K race. This includes all the perks of the 10K, but with a smaller racing distance.
The idea behind the concept of the race weekend is that living a healthy lifestyle and enjoying delicious culinary experiences don’t have to be separate. Life is about balancing and indulging at the same time. The Fit Foodie weekend is packed with celebrity chefs, sweat sessions, and culinary/fitness demonstrations.
The Fit Foodie organization is persistent in helping The American Diabetes Association. All donations from the event will go towards helping those in need. So come hungry, lace up your running shoes and be prepared to have a blast at the Fit Foodie Race Weekend.
