PHOENIX, Ariz.— October 17, 2014 — You want to make a coffee run? In what may be the only race in Arizona to begin and finish at a coffee shop, the second annual Hava Java 5K and 10K Run is set to take place Sunday, October 19. Take a caffeinated Sunday morning run along the canal to help a great cause: Valley Youth Theatre.
There’s nothing like running along the Arizona Canal on a cool Sunday morning in October, so grab some friends and meet at Hava Java, Arizona’s oldest, most awarded coffee house since 1992. Have a quick jolt of caffeine before you head out, or sip some water ahead of the run. Either way, it will be great to run alongside Hava Java customers and friends.
Both the 5K and the 10K will start and stop at the coffee house, located on the northwest corner of 32nd Street & Camelback. The route will take runners up 32nd Street and west along the canal. All proceeds from the race will benefit Valley Youth Theatre.
The 10K will kick off from the coffee shop at 7:15 am and the 5K starts at 7:30 am.
“We are thrilled to be doing this again for the 2nd year. Last year was so much fun we had to do it again! It’s a fun run along the Canal with friends and family to help Valley Youth Theatre, which we are big fans and supporters,” said Hava Java owner Tina Shafer. “I would like to thank our sponsors for their support and we look forward to seeing our customers and friends on what will be a memorable day.”
Sponsors for the 2nd Annual Hava Java 5K & 10K Run include: The MacLean Team, Gallagher & Kennedy, drybar, Molina Fine Jewelers, Active Moms Magazine, Local First Arizona, Mane Attraction Salon, Barrio Café, iRun, CAS Chiropractic, Green Street Communities, Orange Theory Fitness Arcadia, Delux and Robson Communities

ABOUT HAVA JAVA
Hava Java began in Phoenix, Arizona on February 27, 1992. From humble beginnings, Justin Shafer (“Mr. Hava Java”) had a dream of a friendly place, where the world’s best coffees, from the finest beans were served in a family atmosphere. He started his dream outside with the only state of the art gourmet coffee cart in Arizona. He went on to build a gourmet coffee business that soon became a legend. Because of Justin’s dream, Hava Java is now the longest running gourmet coffee company in Arizona. Hava Java uses only the finest roasted coffee beans and the most select ingredients to achieve the highest quality products. Bottom line, you can’t buy or make a better cup of coffee than Hava Java. By the way, his gourmet coffee cart is still a Hava Java trademark!
Justin’s motto is this: “Serve customers only the very best product possible, as expediently as possible, in a clean environment and make them your friends. Not only do I treat my customers the way I like to be treated, but I also treat my Crew Members with respect. I never forget where I came from!”
With a tenaciously loyal clientele, Hava Java is a tasteful and immaculate store serving the best coffees, teas, and baked goods. Quality, Speed, Cleanliness, Friendship and Respect – it’s the Hava Java difference and our formula for success!
