Get Gored for Good: Sunday April 28th

gored posterRun for your life! Participate in Get Gored for Good, an Encierro fundraiser and festival to benefit Amos House. Register online to run or walk the 2-mile downtown route at your own pace from 11am—12:30pm. Just remember to look over your shoulders: the whole time, you’ll be chased by the Roller Bulls, a women’s roller derby team, wearing horns and carrying red paint brushes.

Once you’ve been thoroughly gored and sufficiently covered in red paint, celebrate with friends at an outdoor after-party featuring live music, food, and drinks, starting at noon.

Get Gored for Good is described as 50% foot race, 50% street party, and 100% spectacle. You won’t want to miss it! Standard registration is $35, while children’s registration (for kids under the age of 14) is only $20.
