We're Runner Friendly! – Our community was recently awarded the prestigious “Runner Friendly Community” designation by the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA). Brambleton believes that many businesses in our community meet the Road Runners Club of America’s definition of a Runner Friendly Business. To show their support for the local running community, these businesses will be displaying window stickers indicating that they are engaged with the running community. Among many benefits, these businesses may serve as a safe place that runners can stop at if they need to use the phone or get out of unsafe weather, fill a water bottle to prevent dehydration, or also may allow runners to use their bathroom facilities. Be on the lookout for these stickers! Go Bananas Gives Back: Shop for a Cause Event – Registration is now open for this annual event! Invite your group to shop at Go Bananas any day between 9/23-9/28 and Go Bananas will donate 10% of their purchases to your participating school, charity, team or other non-profit organization. Registration is required in order to have your group be included in this event and to establish a point of contact person. Please call us so we can gather your group's information. Once your group is registered, be sure to spread the word. The more people who shop for your cause, the more Go Bananas will give back.
