Set a Date
No matter if it is your first 5K race or your hundredth, when you register for a 5K race it will keep you motivated and on task to reach your goal of running a successful 5K race. By actually setting up a date on your calendar, you pinpoint the time that you have to be ready to step on that starting line of your 5K race.
Prepare a training schedule immediately after booking your 5K race. New runners should begin with light training and build into a longer running routine.
Come out and participate or volunteer to be a part of Mettle Events Annual Thanksgiving Day 5K at Billsburg Brewery Williamsburg, VA. After numerous successful years in Down Town and a successful couple of years in New Town, we're thrilled to be working with Billsburg Brewery to expand upon our holiday tradition that provides all that you've come to expect from a Mettle Events race; a great fitness and family-oriented (stroller & dog friendly) event with something for everyone. We'll have great T-shirts, finisher medals, local food and entertainment.
After you've survived the Thanksgiving Day food and family activities and Black Friday we've designed a great post holiday 5K to get you back in the groove. Meet us out at Billsburg Brewery on Saturday, November 30 at 10 AM for a fun 5K from the Brewery through the Landfall neighborhood and finish back at Billsburg Brewery. Stay for some great food and beer and perhaps some Saturday afternoon football. We look forward to seeing you all there!
