Downtown Runners promotes fun and exercise through silly events

By Beth Fisher. CREATED Jan 24, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- This weekend, you can strip for a good cause. It is the latest creative brainchild of the Downtown Runners.

Downtown Runners was created by Tanya Carrier, a local school teacher.

Tanya wanted to start a company that encourages people to have fun, get fit and build community. Her runs are always silly. The first one was a sprinkler run with more than 1,500 participants. Each run has a charitable component.

This Saturday's Strip Poker Run has a racy name but it's a family-friendly event.

Downtown Runners events are not competitive. The idea is to have some run and enjoy some exercise at the same time so even walker feel comfortable participating.

Eventually, Tanya hopes to take Downtown Runners to every city in America.
