With the 4K 4Charity Fun Run at the 2016 NAB Show just around the corner, excitement is building for this fun and unique industry event. Get ready for a morning of physical activity, networking and charitable giving that is sure to rev your endorphins before day two of the show.
To ensure you’re prepared come race day, here’s what you need to know to make the most of your 4K 4Charity experience:
Dress for the Part
Remember to leave room in your suitcase for your favorite athletic gear and a pair of running or walking shoes with proper support. The weather forecast in Las Vegas is expected to hit 90 degrees on Tuesday, so you’ll want to be comfortable as you loop the 4km (2.49-mile) course through Sunset Park.
Worry-free Bag Check
Bringing a change of clothes for the day ahead? Secure bag check will be available to all runners upon arrival at the course, and 4K 4Charity volunteers will guarantee your belongings stay safe during the run. To check bags, please use the bag tag located at the bottom of your bib.
Save Time, Avoid the Lines
Save time by picking up your bib on Monday, April 18 at the 4K 4Charity Fun Run kiosk, located outside the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), from 3 – 6pm. You’ll avoid lines and be a step ahead of the game by Tuesday’s 7:30am start time.
We’ll Give You a Ride
Complimentary buses will pick up runners at major NAB Show hotels at 6:45am, and return to the same hotels or the LVCC after the run ends. Maps specifying the designated pick-up area for each hotel are available online and at bib pick-up. 4K 4Charity volunteers will be stationed at each pick-up area, so keep an eye out for their green t-shirts when looking for your bus.
It’s important to recharge after any physical activity – and especially before you hit the LVCC show floor. Grab some complimentary coffee and light breakfast snacks after the race, and feel refreshed as you take on your second day at NAB Show.
Past runners can attest that participating in the 4K 4Charity Fun Run will change the way you experience trade shows. Get ready to explore Nevada’s natural beauty and network with colleagues from more than 150 companies – all while celebrating advancements in video technology and giving back to those in need.
