ESPN 1420 Jersey Fun Run
Saturday, February 3, 2018
8:00 am to 1:00 pm

Put on your team colors and join us for the 2018 Jersey Fun Run at Aloha Stadium! Presented by ESPN 1420 AM, this family-friendly event is open to people of all ages, focusing on fitness, fun, and the joy of being sports fans! Represent your favorite team – professional, college, high school or youth – by wearing their jersey or colors.

The Jersey Fun Run course will take you to parts of Aloha Stadium normally only seen by players, coaches and event personnel. Take part in lively games and challenges at each Activity Station, and run across Hawaiian Tel Federal Credit Union Field!

This time around, they’ll be adding a FREE “Ohana Fest” that will include activities, entertainment, vendors, celebrity appearances and giveaways before, during and after the fun!

The Jersey Fun Run will once again feature an easy, family-friendly 3k course that takes runners and walkers in and around the 50,000-seat stadium, including parts of the facility that are usually only accessible to coaches, players and stadium personnel. The course will also include a number of sports-related activity stations that kids and grownups alike are sure to enjoy. Try your hand at challenging-yet-fun drills involving football, basketball, baseball, soccer and more!

The run culminates with a dash across the football field. See yourself on the stadium’s Jumbo-Tron and show us your best touchdown dance in the end zone! Best of all, proceeds from the event will benefit the Salvation Army (Hawaiian Islands & Pacific Islands Division), a non-profit organization that strives to serve the poor, destitute and hungry. The Hawaiian Islands & Pacific Islands Division of the Salvation Army serves Hawaii, Guam, the Marshall Islands and Micronesia.

Former University of Hawaii and NFL wide receiver Greg Salas will be an official ambassador of the 2018 ESPN 1420 Sports Festival & Family Fest! Greg still holds the UH record for both career yards (4,345) and single-season receptions (119). Come to our Feb. 3 Jersey Fun Run & Ohana Fest and meet one of Hawaii’s all-time greats
