Twinkie Fun Run - The Hostess Comeback Party!

Twinkies. Are. BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let's celebrate! Let's run! Let's celebrate and run!


A few weeks ago I ran a marathon on this one mile loop around my house in the middle of the night. It was fun. Let's have a big running party and run around the loop. I'll bring the Twinkies. Here are the deets (that's fancy teenager lingo for "details"):

When: Friday night, August 2nd

Time: 8:00pm - 12:00am

Where: My house in Hurricane, Utah (email me at coryreese1@hotmail.com if you want to join the party but don't know where I live.)

How Far: As far as you want! You want to run 1 mile? Awesome! Want to go for a marathon? Sweet! I'll make a cool prize pack for the person who runs the farthest. I will have a big white board where you can write your name and how far you ran.

Awards: If you run a half marathon or farther I'll let you take one of my piano CDs. The person with the most miles will earn a trophy. (Likely a little league trophy from the thrift store.)

Timing: This is NOT a race. NOT a race. Just a training run. A neighborhood fun run. Bring your Garmin and keep track of your miles or how many loops you run.

Bathroom: You can use our bathroom downstairs if you want. Don't worry, our poodle is friendly.

Safety: If you're planning to run into the night make sure to bring a head light or flash light so cars can see you. 

Aid station: I'll have a jug of water, a jug of Tailwind, some Twinkies (hopefully!) and a table set up in front of my house. Your entry fee is to bring some kind of treat to add to the aid station. It doesn't need to be Hostess stuff. Maybe a plate of cookies, a dozen donuts, or a vegetable tray. Wait, leave the vegetable tray home.

Guaranteed to be the most fun you've had since your last vacation to Disneyland. Make sure to bring a treat for the aid station. Bring your friends and come prepared to celebrate the happiness of running and Hostess.

  1. LOL I hope you get a strong showing! If not, just eat all of the Twinkies yourself.

  2. Man, I wish I could be there. All the fun stuff happens where I can't attend. Especially sorry since I can't in good conscience buy twinkies. I just love them too much!

  3. What??? This is very tempting to take a drive to Southern Utah. Don't be surprised if I show up. Will talk to the hubby and see if he is ready for a little trip.

  4. Hahahaha, I just had a thought. What's the elevation change? Some fun hills around your house is what I recall?

    1. Good question - the loop is flat as a pancake. Very minimal elevation change.
