Margaritaville Run Comes To Nashville
Get Your Running Shoes Ready, It's Time For A Margarita!
ORLANDO, FL (February 9, 2022) – It’s time to lace up your running shoes and grab your guitar, because today, Margaritaville Run announced a 5-city series for its 2022 tour.
The first-ever Margaritaville Run Series will begin on May 7 in Nashville, Tennessee, and will make stops in Orlando, Pensacola Beach, Houston, and Palm Springs, along with a refreshed virtual challenge.
Poolside cocktails await, activities abound, and scenic views of beaches, water, and city skylines are all part of the Margaritaville Run experience. From the pre-race happy hour to the post-race concert, the Margaritaville Run is sure to be one of the must-attend events of the year.
“Anyone who’s never used fun and run in the same sentence has never run a Margaritaville Run Series event,” said Jamie Monroe, Race Director. “Whether you’re a first-time runner or a seasoned fan who prefers margaritas over miles, the Margaritaville Run Series is the race for you.”
The Margaritaville Run debuted with a virtual event in 2021 attracting thousands of runners from around the world. The unique race swag featured an official Margaritaville Run t-shirt, medal, pair of flip flops, and a margarita-making kit. The Margaritaville Run’s virtual mash-up returns this year, along with the live events, featuring both the “It’s 5 Kilometers Somewhere (3.1 miles)” option and the refreshed yearlong Margaritaville Challenge, with monthly goals and fitness activities.
For “It’s 5 Kilometers Somewhere,” run or walk a 5K (3.1 miles) somewhere, anywhere between February 22, 2022 (National Margarita Day) and December 25, 2022. You get to run or walk at your own pace and time it yourself. After you complete your distance, submit your time to be ranked on the Margaritaville Run leaderboard and receive your official Margaritaville Run t-shirt, finisher medal, race number bib, and shot glass.
For those who want to go the extra #MargaritavilleMile, there’s the Margaritaville Challenge. Every month challenge participants will receive unique activities and wellness tips to help you achieve your fitness goals. Complete just one of the monthly challenges or make it your mission to stay in the Margaritaville state of mind all year long and complete them all. In addition to the official Margaritaville Run t-shirt, finisher medal shot glass, and race number bib, receive a special margarita pin and Margaritaville Run bucket hat to relax in style after completing just one of the monthly challenges. Partakers of this event will have access to the monthly “challenge” leaderboards, where all your runs or walks can be tracked.
The Margaritaville Run Series commits a portion of the series proceeds to Singing for Change (SFC), a global foundation Jimmy Buffett created that has lasting, local impact. SFC provides funding for community-based organizations that help individuals become more self-sufficient and create positive change in their communities. For the past 27 years, SFC has partnered with progressive, community-based organizations addressing the root causes of social or environmental problems.
