The 2019 Microsoft Giving Campaign Run/Walk comes with some ground rules

Raymond Chen

Today is the Microsoft Giving Campaign 5K Run/Walk, which raises money in support of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation, KEXP radio, Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue, and (new this year) Plymouth Housing.

This is a fun event, not a race, and friends and family are welcome to participate. But one of my colleagues pointed out that there are some ground rules:

To ensure that this is a safe and fun event for all participants, the following are not permitted on the race course:

  • pets (this policy does not apply to service animals)
  • skateboards or rollerblades
  • wagons
  • scooters or segways
  • office chairs
  • any other items deemed potential hazards.

You can try to guess how that fifth item got on the list.

    Office chairs would be a poor choice in any case, given previous years’ routes included a stretch of crushed gravel trail.
