Reconnect with friends and meet new ones. Join us this summer for a satisfying new training opportunity and we’ll cool down with a scoop or two.

How the Tour Works

The social tour works exactly the same way as any other type of training run except we’ll be traveling to a different featured ice creamery on the last Thursday of each month this summer. All you have to do is make a commitment to getting started. Not super fit yet, not a problem, use our map tools to plan a distance you are comfortable completing. Participation in the tour is absolutely free but only cone heads receive limited edition T-shirt and 50% off ice cream coupon bib number.

  • Do I have to purchase a shirt with bib number to run the with the ice cream tour? No. Participation without a shirt & bib number is free, however, our local ice creamery partners have extended a generous 50%* off discounts when you show your official bib. (*some exclusions see store for details)
  • Do I have to run a 10K? No. How far you run, walk or skip is completely up to you and your personal fitness level. Our course maps and street decals mark each mile on the route. If you only want to walk 2-miles, flip a u-turn at mile one and retrace your steps to finish your route.
  • Do I have to run the training routes in sequential order? Yes. The host ice creamery’s discount is only good on the designated event date.
