How to Play:

From June 1 - 7, go for a run, or several, and stop by each of the event sponsors to draw a playing card. Be sure to take a selfie with your card, ensuring the card value is clear to see. Return the card to the deck, and thank our sponsors for being so amazing to support this event! Build your best poker hand to take on others in the running community and have a chance to score some great prizes! Plan out your runs and routes, as card pickup is only available during a business's posted hours. Please only collect one card per business throughout the week.

Options for extra cards. A poker hand consists of 5 cards, so the first way to gather an additional card is to stop by each of the 6 Poker Stops to collect 6 cards. If a runner participates in every CRC planned group run through June 1-7, they will receive an additional card following the June 7 run. See our calendar for all planned runs.

Contest Rules:

All players must register for the event and be a current member of the Cheyenne Running Club by 11:59 PM MDT on June 6. If you are not yet a member, membership is only $20 annually, and not only grants you entry into this event, but also provides access to exclusive membership discounts to local businesses and races.

Contest registration may be found here.

To submit your poker hand, please send us an email, or Facebook private message by 8pm on June 7. Message must include all selfies images of you and your card within the business card was drawn at. Picture must be clear to see the poker card value, you, and the business. If picture is not clearly visible for these items, it will not be accepted. A screen capture of your run routes, and/or a public link to a fitness app (like strava) must also be submitted for each of your runs, except for any run where you participated in a planned club run.

The participants with the top three 5 card poker hands will win a prize based on their place. If for any reason a tie may occur, a tie breaker may commence by a rigorous obstacle course challenge, well, or by just looking at any bonus cards, or drawing another from the deck.
