#3StripesStyle Fun Run and Game Night powered by Adidas @ =PR= DC
Feb 22 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
#3StripesStyle Fun Run and Game Night powered by Adidas @ =PR= DC | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

The energy of #boost will make you fall in love with the #3StripesStyle of Adidas during our 4-mile Fun Run around the National Mall featuring the all new Supernova. After the run enjoy drinks, light snacks, and a game of “Boost Ball” against the =PR= DC staff for a chance to win some sweet Adidas swag.

Rules of The Game: Boost Ball is a game derived from Cornhole and Beer Pong and the theme is based on the #3StripesStyle of Adidas Athletic Wear. Participants will have three chances to get the Boost Ball into one of three goals (three different sized foam rollers standing on end). Players must bounce the Boost Ball from a selected distance into one of the three goals. Each miss of the three goals is a loss of a stripe (strike). If a player hits the rim only of a goal, 1 point is awarded. If a player gets the ball into the cylinder of a goal, 3 points will be awarded. The game is over when everyone has lost all of their stripes, thus “three stripes and you’re out.”

Increase your chances of winning some great giveaways by posting photos to Social Media throughout the course of the night using #RunDC, #Boost, or #3StripesStyle.
