In regard to our 3K Walk/5K Run, we are excited to announce that we now have a JETAA Chicago t-shirt available for sale and a Spotify playlist you can enjoy while you run!
Buying the t-shirt is completely optional, but if you would like to purchase one, you can check it out on our Etsy store here. It comes in 3 colors and a variety of sizes! In addition, here is the sizing guide (scroll down to the bottom) to help determine which shirt is the best size for you. (It is recommended to order sooner rather than later to allow time for production and shipping).
If you purchase one, we'd love to see you represent it on Instagram with the hashtags #JETSetGo and #JETAA5K! And if you have any areas around where you live or run that remind you of/connect you to Japan (such as a 7/11 for example, where you used to buy your Pocari Sweat!), we'd love to see pictures of those places shared on Instagram as well.
Our Spotify playlist can be found here, which has more than enough songs to keep you going, whether you choose to walk the 3K or run the 5K!
One final reminder that you can complete the distance anytime before October 11th, which is when we'll have our post-run happy hour from 7-8 pm CST! We can chat about our running experiences and enjoy some Sports Day trivia. We'll also be giving away a gift certificate to Fleet Feet (ships nationwide) so you can stock up on your favorite gear for your next race!
We look forward to seeing your pictures as you complete your distances! Happy running!
*This event is open to JET alumni and Friends/Family of JET
