The Pop Tart Run
January 2 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm PST
An event every year that begins at 8:00 am on day first of January, repeating until January 6, 2024
The Pop Tart Run is a 5K run to celebrate the beloved toaster pastry, descended from a long and proud line of strudel desserts and transformed by the engine of American capitalism into its current iconic mylar-enveloped iconic iteration.
The run will be chip timed and participants receive a two-pack of Pop Tarts and a finisher’s medal. Toasters are not included.
Dogs and strollers are not allowed. We will be following all of our Covid-19 prevention measures. The race is capped at 300 participants.
For 2021 there will be no pre-race or in-person packet pickup. All bib numbers will be mailed out to participants.
The race starts at 9am. Because participants will start in small waves, we’ll be starting runners from 9am to noon. Your start time will be assigned to you one week prior and will be based upon your estimated finish time.
