Join the 5K Flash Mob on Nov 1st for a 6pm start for the Mob's first 5K Flash Mob in 2019! Run outside the box in the cold and dark with the 5K Flash Mob, and you will have 55 minutes until the finish line is removed!! This is a private members only run, the route is a secret, but all registered 5K Flash Mob Members will be contacted after midnight prior to the morning of the day of the 5K Flash Mob!
Get ready to keep warm for the cold run, but afterwards the Mob will enjoy a cold and frosty post-run beverage offered by one of the towns favorite pubs!
If you've never run a 5K before, many have chosen the 5K Flash Mob as their first, so join us!! If you are an elite runner, the normal human runners would love to hear your stories during the post-run assembly.
From Charleston, South Carolina to Albany, New York the 5K Flash Mob routes have transformed since its creation, and from Murphy's Irish Pub in Alexandria, VA to the Tavern on the Green in Central Park, the 5K Flash Mob's post run beverage has always been taken care of by the Mob!

So, what is a 5K Flash Mob?
A 5K Flash Mob is a group of runners who assemble suddenly to run 5000 meters outdoors. They complete this unusual and seemingly pointless act within 55 minutes, then quickly disperse, but often times will reassemble afterwards to rehydrate and replenish.
All are welcome to join in on the Flash Mob, because it is free, but only registered participants will receive a bib number. Bib numbers have value, for free hydration awaits bib holders, plus gifts are often handed out at the post race assembly.
Join the 5K Flash Mob, and run a 5K, or walk just 1.6K (1 mile) course, because we “flash mob” for a reason.
* The one time only registration through Active is for membership into the 5K Flash Mob and is not a race entry fee. 5K Flash Mobs are just one free benefit for being a member of the 5K Flash Mob.
Participants will be notified after MIDNIGHT, and before 7am, before and prior to the race, of when and where to go for you pre-race materials pick-up, the location of the start, the route, parking recommendations and the post-race refueling location. When you receive the route, please ensure you become familiar with it, as this is a 5K Flash Mob and not a normal sponsored run; we are the 5K Flash Mob! Water will be available before and after the race.
