Running of the Gnomes will benefit The Pink Fund, a group committed to providing financial support to help meet basic needs, decrease stress levels and allow breast cancer patients in active treatment focus on healing while improving survivorship outcomes.
This includes vital things like housing, utilities, transportation and even help with insurance. You can find more information on their site or their annual report.
Here is the donation link
for The Pink Fund! Our starting goal is $5,000 but we hope to at least double it between the Live and the Classic Runs!What is this?
The Running of the Gnomes is an event where the Warcraft Community gathers on one singular server and travels from where the Gnomes start right when you make them in their starting zone and then travel to Booty Bay to help raise awareness and funds for Breast Cancer.
What is this? Is it just the in game micro-holiday?
The Running of the Gnomes is an event where the whole of the Warcraft community gathers on one singular server, Scarlet Crusade, and travels from the Gnome starting zone to Booty Bay to help raise awareness and funds for Breast Cancer.
The yearly migration was so popular with players and the community that Blizzard honored the event with a Micro-Holiday called the Great Gnomeregan Race that occurs yearly on the same date worldwide. The micro holiday provides players with a race course and NPCs to cheer them on.
While the Micro-Holiday occurs everywhere, the community and gathering of players is still held on only on Scarlet Crusade-US.
The community event benefits a charity we love, and gathers together people worldwide. At the start of the event in 2017, there were over 7,000 players online and $16,600+ raised, and $7,000+ in 2018! (Plus a whole lot raised before that!)How to participate!
Simply log in on the specified day on Scarlet Crusade, before the run start time and join us for the run. We’ll have the invites, and you just need to bring yourself!
Because the Gnome Run is very popular, I suggest showing up not 10 minutes before the run if you can help it, or joining our discord for days that we are pre-inviting people to guilds to snag an invite early.
There will be absolutely no Cross Realm invites for this.You must be on Scarlet Crusade or it’s connected realm Feathermoon. I’m unable to facilitate people who are off realm. Simply roll a new character on the specified server and join in the fun that way!
If you do not play World of Warcraft, or play in the EU/Asia regions, you can download and use a US trial account. If your account is currently not active, you can also do the same! Trial accounts cannot join guilds, but you can run along with us, and we do have some ways to count you all. You can also join our discord still!Discord?https://discord.gg/wfV2j2gDoes this one have it’s own hashtag?
Yes! #GnomeRun2k19What’s the route?
From the Gnome/Dwarf starting area, past Kharanos, up into Ironforge, onto the Tram, into Stormwind. From there into Elywnn Forest taking a right at the stream between the Brackwell Pumpin Patch and Eastvale Logging camp to dodge the murlocs and swim the river across to Duskwood. We’ll brave the scary forest to the road into Darkshire, and stick on the path as we take a turn towards Stranglethorn and all the way down to Booty Bay where we’ll stop at the top of the AH bank! We usually make a heart and take pictures and stuff.
