All rules and details for the 2023 Poker Run are listed below!

Prizes (aka the good stuff):

How to Play:

From June 7 - 13, go for a run, or several, and track it on Strava. While on the run, 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.  If a runner participates in all 6 CRC planned group runs during the event, they will receive an additional card following the June 13 run. See calendar for all planned runs.  A runner may also earn an extra card by running in the Spring Into Green 5k held on June 10, runner must take a selfie with the bib visible and track the run with Strava (CRC members do receive a discount for this race).  Finally, a runner may also earn an extra card if they visit all poker stops (during business hours) during a single run tracked in Strava.

Contest Rules:

All runs must be tracked using Strava to show the GPS of the run.  Each participant will post the selfie(s) taken during the activity in the Strava Run and title as CRC Poker Run.  Runners must be a current member of the Cheyenne Running Club by 11:59 PM MDT on June 12 to be eligible for prizes.  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.
