Free Download: Elf Scavenger Hunt List
Everyone's invited to join in the scavenger hunt. Simply search for the items on the list while running your 5K or 10K.
It's a fun way to add extra competition if you're running virtually with friends. It helps the miles go fast for me.
You can take a screen shot of the image below, or download the jpg in 8.5 x 11" or Instagram stories size. I'll post on Instagram and Twitter, too so you can share from there.
Post your scavenger hunt results on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #ElfVirtualRun and #RunWithBuddy so we can cheer for each other.
I can't wait to see what people find on the run! Let me know about your race. You can find me @ThisOldRunner on IG and Twitter.
You Can Still Register for Elf Virtual Run
If you'd like to give (or get) an Elf Virtual Run registration — go for it. Registration is still open. You can run your race and upload your results anywhere and anytime between now and January 31, 2021.
Spreadin' Holiday Cheer in My Elf Virtual Run Gear
Maybe it's the pandemic. Maybe it's 'cause Elf is my favorite holiday movie... either way, I'm having so much fun prepping for my Elf Run.
My daughter made me an Elf Movie mask when she heard I was running. I LOVE IT!
I scored a pair of ugly sweater sunnies from Knockaround — to spread Christmas cheer, of course!
PLUS, I received a wonderful surprise from Gatorade Endurance. They sent me their new energy gel flavors (Watermelon, Cherry Lime, and Caramel Candy). What could possibly match an Elf Race better than a caramel candy gel?!?!
