Quatina M. Wolaver Poker Run Now virtual @ pin Old Town LLC Fayetteville, Tennessee 37334
  • DESCRIPTION

    Do you like to run? Do you like to play poker? Do you like supporting worthy causes with your participation? If so, this is the event for YOU! This race format is totally  unique for our area and has been a lot of fun for our participants for the last 2 years; we are looking forward to bringing an even bigger and better event for 2020!

    Concept: Runners complete as many 1/2 mile loops on our closed, gravel course in ONE HOUR as they wish. For each lap completed, a card will be handed out. Runners must complete 5 loops (2.5 miles) in order to play poker. There are no age groups since the winners aren’t based on speed so, bring your kids and grandmas! Never know who lady luck is going to smile on!

    NEW THIS YEAR!!! We are bringing a TEAM EVENT to our 2020 run! Grab 3 of your best good friends (all male, all female, or mix it up!) and see how far the 4 of you can go together as a team! Same premise – each runner will line up and start at the same time. There will be 2 categories for team prizes: Most Laps Completed and Most Funds Raised, but each individual runner will also be allowed to enter their poker hand for the prizes in their division.

    We are striving to be as eco-friendly as possible so, we will provide 1 plastic cup for use at our water stations. You are welcome to bring your own hydration systems and just refill along your run. *2019 participants – we will have a better system in place for 2020. #believeit

    11 Total Prizes:
    Male – Most Laps
    Female – Most Laps
    Male – Top 3 Poker Hands
    Female – Top 3 Poker Hands
    Team – Most Laps
    Team – Most Funds Raised
    Individual (M or F) – Most Funds Raised

    Packet Pickup: All packets must be picked up 12:30 – 1:45  on race day.

    All proceeds from this race will benefit the Quatina M. Wolaver Foundation of Hope, which strives to raise awareness and funding for research for ovarian cancer. *Did you know that your PAP does NOT test for ovarian cancer? There is NO TEST for this disease!
