About WBNA's Red Cup Relay
So, you didn't bake a pie for your neighbor who moved in five years ago, and you STILL don't know their name(s)? Here's your chance....the West Broadway Neighborhood Association of Providence RI wants you to come on down to Dexter Training Ground Park and meet your neighbors! Sign up as a team of four or show up day of and pull a team together day-of. We will do our best to help with this so please come along! Don't know how to run or jog? Then, walk, crawl, whatever. This is about meeting your neighbors, getting silly, and having fun.
About the Red Cup Relay
Teams of four people are required. Co-ed is awesome but not required. When the "gun" goes off, the first person in the relay downs the contents of their red cup (alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage). When the beverage of choice is drunk, they run, jog, walk, or crawl 800 yards around Dexter Training Ground Park. When they are finished, they pass a cup to their neighbor who drinks and runs around the park until the last person in the relay, who will then run/jog/walk/crawl faster than they ever thought possible around the park through the finish line, where you will get some clapping and a pat on the back from your neighbors. This is the Red Cup Relay....we encourage you to get crazy with it. P.S. Again, drinking beer is not required at this event. We will have an alternative. P.P.S. Red Cup Relay is a 21+ event, so bring you government issued ID! If you're under 21, then you're considered a Youth and we will have a Youth Run that you can participate in too.
Post Red Cup Relay Party
After all neighbors are done relaying, get ready to party in Luongo Square where there will be free music. Food trucks, vendors, and drinks will be available - not for free, but equally awesome. All neighbors young, younger, and youngest are welcome!
The course is fast and flat about 800 yards. It runs around Dexter Training Ground Park (73 Dexter Street PVD, 02909) and includes Dexter Street, Hollywood, Parade, and yes some actual park running.
Are included with your entry fee (first 100 registrants). So, register today! T-shirts are not included for Youth.
Costume Contest: Won't you be my Neighbor?
Won't you be my neighbor is a *surprise surprise* best dressed NEIGHBOR costume contest! Extra points if your team of neighbors dresses up using the neighbor theme. Award for best costume will be announced that day.
There is no Red Cup Relay parking. We encourage neighbors to walk together, bike ride together, and car pool. If that doesn't work, there is street parking on Westminister and neighboring streets. Do not park on Hollywood, Parade, or Dexter because that is where we will be relaying. Thank you!
