The "LU Summer Series UNCOMMON on the FIGGE Bechtel Plaza" kicks off on June 20th, and ends with the 24-Hour Pre-Race Rainbow Rave Party leading up to the LU FIGGE FINALE Urban Citizen 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, and Bike Fondo on September 5th, 2015! This is the page to find all the general and registration info to participate in these Uncommon events! The amazing FIGGE Bechtel Plaza becomes the LU HUB for the summer, baby! All this wicked cool stuff goin down in all parts of the QCA, are coming together under the LU umbrella for this never-been-done-before Summer Series! Let's have some fun!
Below on this page is the list of events in order (and grouped by month) so you know when all the event happenings, are Happenin'! The right side of the page has specific details on each of the events, and links to register when available!
Oh, and speaking of registering, we should probably mention that most of the Summer Series UNCOMMON is. . .FREE. Yup. And you don't even have to register. Just show up. Just BE THERE. But -- you DO have to register for the FINALE (by August 15th to get your name on the wall) and the Scavenger Hunts - and you can do that at GetMeRegistered.com.
The LIVE UNCOMMON Summer Series is in honor of the arts, in celebration of individuality, and urban citizenship. A few noteworthies that apply to all of the more than 50 events under the LIVE UNCOMMON Summer Series umbrella. ALL events (exept the FINALE and Scavenger Hunts) are FREE. ALL events happen at the FIGGE. ALL events incorporate a "city" element. ALL events (not just during the LU Summer Series, but ALL year long EVERY year) are powered by your generous LIVE UNCOMMON Engines - UnityPoint Health Trinity, OS Orthopaedic Specialists, Active Endeavors, Russell Construction. And the message is "we are commUNity".
The FIGGE Finale 1 Mile / 5K / 10K / Half Marathon / Bike Fondo is a "capacity limit" event and is a mere 10 bones, aka $10, donation. We are creating a work of art comprised of a bunch of works of art (YOU) so if you want YOUR name etched for posterity in this work of art, you must register by August 15th. Do it. On race day, and forever more, you will be wicked glad that you did.
Let's all LIVE UNCOMMON on the FIGGE Bechtel Plaza!
While the Live Uncommon Crew strives for 100% accuracy 100% of the time, we admit that sometimes one or two mistakes slip through the radar.
When we find 'em,
We'll fix 'em quick!
