Run for the Border 2011
Whether you like to run or not, Run for the Border is one event that gets people in the mood to race and drink.
The annual downtown Cinco de Mayo race took place Thursday evening, starting and ending at the Blind Pig. Participants were given three checkpoints in the downtown area and tasks to complete during the 5K race. The race began in an alley near the Blind Pig, where a gigantic blow-up castle loomed. Runners needed to complete the bouncing castle's obstacle courses before they could start heading to their checkpoints. The stops were Zocalo, Harry Buffalo and Channel 3. The tasks that needed to be completed included drinking an upside margarita and picking up maracas and sombreros.

The wind and rain held out just long enough for the 5K fun run to end and for all the runners to enjoy their celebratory Coronas at Blind Pig and Dive Bar.
