Sweat in the City: Anna’s Taqueria Walqueria

07-17-06 006
Normally, “half marathons” and “burritos” are never mentioned in the same sentence. Unless you are talking about getting some burritos after running 13.1 miles. But this Saturday, you don’t have to run 13.1 miles in order to get your delicious burrito.

Anna’s Taqueria is holding its 7th annual Walqueria – a half-marathon walk to benefit The Home for Little Wanderers. Here’s how it works. Starting in their 1412 Beacon Street, Brookline location, you will visit each Anna’s location along a 13.1 mile loop, stopping along the way for some free refreshments. For each location that you visit, Anna’s will donate $5 to The Home for Little Wanderers, a local organization ensuring the healthy emotional, mental, and social development of children at risk, their families and communities. So the more you walk, the more you can eat, the more money you can donate. Get those walking shoes ready!

The walk will begin at Anna’s – 1412 Beacon Street, Brookline – at 10:15 am this Saturday, September 21st, registration starting at 9:30 (you can also sign up on Facebook). The cost is free, but donations are welcome.

Here’s the route:

  • Stop 1 (Anna’s Beacon St.): Free burrito and a punch card to use at each stop (for each punch, Anna’s donates $5 to The Home for Little Wanderers).
  • Stops 2-5 (Anna’s MGH, Anna’s MIT, Anna’s Porter Sq., Anna’s Davis Sq.): Anna’s provides Natural beverages, chips/salsa/guacamole, tacos and small cheese quesadillas for participants; other menu items available for purchase.
  • Stop 6 (Anna’s Harvard St.): Free burrito to refuel!
