Are you a gnome? Do you know a gnome? Would you like to BE a gnome? (And who wouldn’t?) Then rise UP to the challenge of The Great Gnomeregan Run from Gnomeregan to Booty Bay.
When: October 8
Where: The fun begins outside the gnome starting area and ends in Booty Bay
Who: Alliance-Only (Don’t worry, all players can create a level 1 gnome and join in the fun too.)
Whether you’re a level 1 gnome (highly encouraged), a level 48 Dark Iron dwarf, or a level 60 worgen, you’ll be able to join in this fun run beginning in the gnome starting area, winding through Dun Morogh, Ironforge, the Deeprun Tram, Stormwind, Elwynn Forest, Duskwood, and Stranglethorn Vale where the run culminates in Booty Bay.
Participants can begin their race by picking up the quest, “The Great Gnomeregan Run” from Mina Gleespanner in New Tinkertown which is located just outside of the gnome starting area. The event lasts all day so you can choose when it’s most convenient to set your best personal record.
It's a big big BIG world out there, but don’t worry about getting lost, there will be course markers and spectators along the way to help keep you on track. You’ll even see a few familiar faces among the onlookers including some new mechagnome friends!
Stranglethorn Vale is a dangerous place for low-level characters so you may want to find some muscle to join you along the way for a little extra protection. If you’re a higher-level character, think about playing chaperone for a gnome.
Concerned about getting ambushed by enemy Horde? Fear not, level 1 gnomes (and any player under level 20) can’t be attacked by enemy players. Higher-level Alliance escorts who also don’t want to engage in world PvP can turn Warmode off in Stormwind.
Once you make it to the race’s end in Booty Bay, make sure to turn in your quest to Prince Erazmin to complete the run.
Whether short or tall, it will be a good time for all.
