Stuff Your Face Race Update

We hope each of you and your families are safe following Hurricane Ian. We are writing to provide you an update on this year’s event. 

This past weekend, we did an assessment of our ability to continue with the Stuff Your Face Race this weekend, Saturday Oct 8th. You may or may not know but the park and the course surrounding our venue is severely flooded and currently inaccessible. It does not appear that the conditions will improve by our event date. We considered rescheduling but we do not know when the park will be useable and there were no viable options between now and the end of the year. Therefore, we have made the decision to cancel the event and transition it to a virtual option. 

We know this is disappointing. We are disappointed too.  Our planning committee struggled with this decision, but we feel it is the responsible thing to do. 

We have worked out a plan to make sure you have some reasonable options. We know your first choice would be to run the race in person, but that that is unfortunately no longer possible. Please see the options below and let us know by the end of the week (Oct 7th) of your preference. 

1. Transfer to the virtual event. You’ll receive an email later this week with information on how to get your race swag and upload your time.   

2. Convert your registration to a donation. You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover the costs and ultimately to support IMPOWER’s mission. We deeply appreciate your generosity and will give you the highest of fives when we see you! 

3. Defer your entry to next year. This means your registration will automatically transfer to the 2023 event (October 2023 – date TBD). 

4. Request a refund. If the first three options don’t appeal to you, we will provide a refund of your registration fees. Refunds will be processed the second week of October. 

To make your selection, simply respond to this email before October 7th. If we don’t hear from you, you will be automatically moved to the virtual option. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at events@impowerfl.org.  

We appreciate your understanding and patience.

Description
Run. Eat. Repeat! 

A test of both endurance and gastro-intestinal fortitude, the STUFF YOUR FACE RACE is like no other in Central Florida! This unique, professionally-timed event challenges teams and/or individuals to run -- and eat -- your way to the finish line of a 3.1 or 6.2 mile course.  

Not so sure about eating and running? That's okay. We understand! We offer a classic race option too so you can join the fun but skip the eating.  

Participants will have the opportunity to fundraise for swag (and bragging rights!) and ultimately to support IMPOWER's life-changing mental health, substance misuse and child well-being programs aimed at inspiring life's potential and helping individuals and families lead safe, healthy, meaningful and productive lives. 

Our mission is serious. Our event is not! So grab your friends, create outrageous outfits, laugh and run with abandon, and, of course, stuff your face! 

**All entry fees are non-refundable.  This is a rain or shine event. No refunds will be given for inclement weather. **

Race Options

To make sure everyone can participate we offer a number of ways to get involved! At registration, simply choose your desired distance and then follow the prompts to select the category that is right for you: 

Four (4) Person Relay - 10K Distance: Take the Challenge and make it a team effort! You and three friends will work together to conquer a 10K course, eating and trading off along the way. Each runner will tackle an approximately 1.5-ish miles and one Athlete Food Tent - before tagging off to the next relay partner. 

Individual Challenge (Eating) Option - 5K or 10K Distance: Choose this option if you're up for the challenge and want to Stuff Your Face along the course! Depending on your total distance, you'll cover 2 or 4 "legs" - each about 1.5-ish miles. After each leg you'll consume the food item at each of the Athlete Food Tents on the course before heading off to the finish line to compete for awards.  {Note: participants must fully consume the menu item at each food station in order to be eligible for awards}

Individual Classic (Non-Eating) Option - 5K or 10K Distance:  Choose this option if you want to enjoy a traditional race - without eating. You won't be eligible to stop at any of the Athlete Food Tents but can still join in on the fun and remain eligible for awards. 

Virtual RaceNot in town on race day? Want to sleep in? Or just prefer to run/walk on your own terms? No problem! The Virtual Race was made just for you! Choose your distance (3.1 or 6.2 miles), map your own course and then hit the pavement anywhere or anytime on October 8th!
