Fangirl Shirts is thrilled to be returning to ClexaCon 2018! We’re looking forward to the entire experience. And as vendors and panelists, we are also excited about contributing to the ClexaCon community.
One of the new ways we’re contributing is by organizing a fun run/walk for ClexaCon 2018! It’s called the Fangirl Shirts ClexaCon Fun Run. The Fun Run is just that – a fun run, or a fun walk, and it’s free and open to everyone. No experience is required.
First, the details. Save the date!
Date: Friday, April 6, 2018
What: a fun run or walk from the Tropicana to the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign and back! It’s 1.3 miles each way. We’ll pause at the sign for some selfies and a group photo.
Why: because it’s fun!
If you’re interested in joining the fun run, subscribe to the Fun Run email list below!
As part of the fun run, we’re organizing TEAM FANGIRL: a coordinated effort to raise money for the True Colors Fund to support their work to end LGBTQ youth homelessness. Everyone who joins TEAM FANGIRL can create a personal fundraising page and invite their friends and family to make donations. In fact, you don’t have to be participating in the Fun Run or even attending ClexaCon to join Team Fangirl to raise money to help end LGBTQ youth homelessness – everyone is welcome.

Do you want to connect with other runners, walkers, and people who plan to participate in the Fangirl Shirts ClexaCon 2018 Fun Run? If so, join the Team Fangirl Forum – this is a message board where you can connect with other Fun Runners and Walkers, discuss training, and to talk about ClexaCon. It’s also a great way to meet other ClexaCon attendees in advance.
What’s the route?
Does it cost anything?
Nope! It’s free.
What if I’m not a runner, can I walk?
Yes! You can walk.
Where can I meet other people who are going to do the fun run or walk?
In the Team Fangirl Forum!
Will I get a number and a timing chip?
Nope. The Fun Run is not timed. We aren’t doing numbers, either (but if we did, we’d all have an identical number and it would be 324B21).
Will there be a T-shirt?
Yes! Here’s what it looks like.
Gorgeous! How can I get one?
There are two ways! One free, and one non-free.
Here’s the free way! First, you can sign up for Team Fangirl to raise money for the True Colors Fund to end LGBTQ+ youth homelessness. Everyone who raises $100 on their Team Fangirl page by March 15, 2018 will receive a FREE T-shirt.
Here’s the non-free way. You can buy one – we’re not selling them yet, but we will be and we’ll update this page when they go on sale. Proceeds will be used to offset the costs of providing free T-shirts to all the $100+ fundraisers.
Can I dress up in cosplay for the Fun Run?
Yes! That would be rad, though it’s not required.
Will the streets of Las Vegas be shut down for the Fun Run?
They will not. We will be running along the sidewalks and stopping at all red lights – for safety.
Do I need to sign a waiver?
Can I help with the Fun Run?
Sure you can! Email sally at fangirlshirts dot com if you want to help out.
I have a question and it wasn’t answered here.
Post your question in the comments and we’ll add it to this FAQ. (If you don’t want your question to be public, you can email it to sally at fangirlshirts dot com)
