It's that time again!
When: Saturday October 15th 7pm EST (aka 4:00pm server time).
Where: Scarlet Crusade server, meet at the entrance to Gnomergan. The race goes down to Booty Bay (and we form a "heart" shape on the roof of the bank). Then it's off for the after party, which involves taking the boat to Ratchet and running up to Orgimmar to kiss Garrosh lick Vol'jin do something to Sylvanas (not sure just what yet).
Why: To benefit the Cleveland Clinic's trial phase of the Touhy vaccine to fight breast cancer. Run as gnome to be counted for a donation, donate money yourself, or just help raise awareness. (Check #demboobies, both men and women can get breast cancer!)
How: Roll up a level 1 gnome on the Scarlet Crusade server, with pink hair. A bit before race time, log in to be invited in to a racing guild (for the headcount) and equip a guild run tabard and race for the cure!
More information: Check this post on the Blizzard forums for more information.
Chat channel for the Gnome Run: /gnomerun
Let's all meet about 6:30pm in front of Gnomergan (I will be there on my level 60-something gnome Bitzee, a veteran of previous runs-- helpful to bodyguard you all as we run through hostile areas. I'll be on my sapphire panther to make it easier to find me. You will need to join a racing guild; I am in Gnome Run Too, but it is likely filled up. The run just grows every year! It might help keep things a bit smoother if you all make up your gnomes in advance of the date (or re-use your gnome from a previous year). We can party up, and if we have more than five of us, we can make more parties.
Regarding tabards: "Consequently, if you really would like one of our adorable tabards (they’re pink with a white heart) you need only run to Ironforge and purchase one, or mail yourself the Account Bound guild tabard, and equip it."
If you need help purchasing a tabard, let me know. :)
Regarding pets and mounts: When the race begins, all pets, mounts and toys MUST be put away. This event has a habit of crashing the server (Blizz knows and expects it) but it is much less stressful in terms of server usage and keeping the confusion level down if they are dismissed.

See you then-- pink tide is coming!

Advance notice that I will not be attending this year's running of the gnomes due to IRL obligations :( To everyone attending, have fun, and represent the Blue and Gold. Go Gryphons ^-^
**Edit: Is it too late for the running of the gnomes? o.O IF so, totally fine, but I at least got a gnome for next year :) **
