A 5k fun run from the Waverly Hotel to the Chattahoochee River. No registration fee. Unsanctioned. Untimed. Probably unauthorized. Knafs and Carry Commission are sponsoring it so the swag is free for participants. (Ok, we lied: it's 3.24 miles -- 5.2k)



Literally anyone. It's a 5K fun run. Or walk. Or wander. It's untimed. Non-competitive (unless Doug Flagg turns up the heat and needs to be reminded of his age.)  Do 1 mile. Do 2. Bring yo' kids. Bring yo' wife. Roll your husband's lazy a... er... your husband out of bed and bring him.


Meet: Saturday, June 8, 2024 at 7 a.m. Eastern. Run starts at 7:10 a.m. 


Oh baby, yes! We've got Limited Edition golf towels (knife cleaning rags) for participants. To receive a golf towel and updates on the run, sign up here. Registration closes April 15 so we can order the towels. Registration isn't required. This is basically your golf towel reservation so we can order.


In front of the Waverly Hotel.  


It was approaching midnight in the Pit-- the rotunda bar at Blade Show Atlanta. 2023. I was standing there chatting with Cougar Kyle and Jordan from Carry Commission-- friends, knife guys, and runners. They invited me to join them the following morning for a pre-show run. I said yes. Then I said no. Too much going on. For the next 9 months, I received regular texts from Kyle and Jordan from their runs, adventures, and good times. "Pit to Fit" was born.

We want to go running during Blade Show. With friends. But there's more to it: We all have "Pits" we find in life: lack of fitness, harmful substances, negative thoughts, bad relationships, challenging situations, etc. etc. Pits are the worst, but they happen. There's an old story about a donkey who falls in a well. The farmer tries to pull up the old creature without success. He decides to finish the job and bury the animal and end the misery. As each shovelful of dirt lands on the donkey, the old ass shakes it off, takes a step up, then eventually climbs out of the pit. That's what Pit to Fit is about. Step up. Take control of your life. Pick your pit. Take 3 months to train, beat your pit, then come run with us.
