Whether you’re walking or running, the 26th annual Renaissance Run begins at 8:30 a.m. Saturday at the Midwest City Community Center, 200 N. Midwest Blvd. Too early for you? Perhaps this phrase will change your mind: “concludes with a pancake breakfast.” Thought so. Registration is $30. Call 739-1293 or visit signmeup. com/84804.

Trot it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Big changes afoot for the 13th annual Turkey Trot: No longer is the race held Thanksgiving morning. Instead, the event kicks off at 7 a.m. Friday, so runners can zoom off all that gravy. Taking off from the Myriad Botanical Gardens, 301 W. Reno, are a 5K run, a 1-mile Wobble Run and a 200-yard children’s run, all benefiting charity, with games and activities afterward. Call 840-1359 or visit oklahomacityturkeytrot.org.

funrun

For the ‘Fun’ of it

Watch Kyle Roberts’ app-tastic adaptation of a smartphone game sensation.

Played Fun Run yet? Or perhaps, like me, just watched over your kid’s shoulder as he did?

Hell, even if you haven’t heard of the game, this clip’s themes are universal enough that you’ll get it. Local filmmaker/animator Kyle Roberts’ latest project is “Fun Run in Real Life,” a three-minute video that sees some wicked parkour unleashed throughout downtown Oklahoma City — especially Stage Center, which seems made for dat sh!t — as fast-paced participants use their feet and try not to lose their heads:



You may have recognized OKC rapper Jabee lending his voice. (If not, you weren’t paying attention; like all good hip-hoppers, he directly references himself in the lyrics.)

God help us all if Hollywood decides to turn Fun Run into a movie, but if it does, Roberts deserves the directing gig. —Rod Lott

Dispatches from Boston

Metro residents who ran in the Boston Marathon recall the horror of the bombings and that city’s subsequent show of resilience.

Finishing the 117th Boston Marathon brought tears of joy from Oklahoma City runner Dawn Harth. Within minutes, however, that exhilaration turned bittersweet.

Watching 5K runners is kinda boring. Watching 5K runners being pelted with rainbow powder every five minutes, however? Son, that’s surefire entertainment. This year benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Color Me Rad bursts into vibrancy at 9 a.m. Saturday at State Fair Park, 3001 General Pershing. Visit colormerad.com.
