Our friends at Red Coyote want you to support local businesses while getting some exercise on Saturday. And it won’t cost you anything!
The Love Local Run is a virtual event that will result in you supporting two OKC-based businesses at one time. Your $20 registration fee is returned in exchange for a $20 gift card to a local shop or restaurant. There’s a little more work on you your end as well, but it’s something you’ll probably be doing anyway.
The first step is to sign up for the race before Saturday morning. When you register, you’ll get to pick a gift card from one of Red Coyote’s friends, such as Plant, Shop Good, Green Bambino, Social Capital, Capitals Ice Cream, or Common Place Books.
Then on Saturday, you go run whatever distance you want, whenever you choose, in honor of the place you’re supporting. Post about what business you’re supporting on social media and why. Oh and be sure to tag @red_coyote in your pictures. The most creative posts could win a $50 gift card to Red Coyote.
On Monday, visit Red Coyote’s store in Oklahoma City and pick up your gift card. You can have the gift card mailed to you as well, but it won’t get replaced if it’s lost.
There are no losers in this race – only winners – so rally the family to get out of the house and get to moving.
