2018 Local Events

During your visit to Mount Airy and the Budbreak Wine and Craft Beer Festival, check out the many other fun activities our area has to offer.

The Gambler Run

The Gambler Run Traxx is hosting its first annual running event called The Gambler. This is not your standard race. Rather than focusing on a certain distance and runner’s times, The Gambler is all about the loot (prizes) and, of course, THE GAMBLE.

The course is 1/2 mile, with the start and finish in the same location, and participants of all paces run or walk the loop as many times as they please within 1 HOUR. Each time you pass the starting line again you will receive a digital “gambling chip”. The more chips you get the better!

Go to thegamblerrun.com for more information.
