The Office Games take place July 19

Leave it to those Scrantonians to have yet another tie in with the fictional office crew from The Office, when the host “The Office Games” at the Steamtown Mall on July 19th.

The competition won’t feature anything as awesome as the various ways to prevent boredom (a shame!), but it will feature a 2k run in office attire (great oogly moogly that would be hell running 1.5 miles in a suit on a July afternoon) and then conclude with a beet-eating contest.

The affair to remember is going to be hosted by Mindy Kaling, who plays krazy Kelly on the show.

And yes, this all has to do with some product tie-in.? The events were organized to mark the launch of Pressman Toy’s official NBC licensed games based on “The Office” — “The Office DVD Board Game” and “The Office Trivia Game,” representatives for Pressman Toy said Monday.
