2013 has been the biggest running year of my short running life! There seems to have been a race at every turn, ha! I had planned on the Peachtree Road being my last race for the summertime. That was until I recently discovered what may be the "coolest" race ever.... Drenched 5K - Run. Water Fight. Summer Party! You can imagine my excitement when I realized they are hosting an event in Jacksonville on the weekend we will be celebrating Scott's birthday in the area. I can't think of a better way to celebrate than with a FUN FAMILY RUN!
The Drenched 5K is all about bringing back those memories of summer fun. Participants will run or walk from dry to drenched through “hot zones” and drenched zones which may include mist tunnels, foam zones, sprinklers, spectator “sniper” zones, bubbles, fire hoses, and a 100 foot slip n slide. Runners and walkers are encourage to form teams, don crazy costumes, and bring out their biggest water guns for a little camaraderie and competition against other teams.
For those not interested in building up a sweat but who want to get in on the fun, Drenched has a free spectator zone where they get to drench the runners any way possible! They are all about families getting active and so kids 5 and under run FREE and kids 12 and under receive discounted entries!
And at the finish? They stage the best summer party in town! The world's biggest water balloon fight, music, drinks and dancing.
Drenched will be in 10 cities in summer of 2013: Denver, DFW, LA, DC, Jacksonville, Columbus, Atlanta, Kansas City, Philly and Huntsville, AL.
Drenched 5K benefits local Children's Hospitals and fundraisers for local fire fighters.
Register on a team of 4 or more and save $5 each!
So what's the big deal?? Not only am I super excited to try another fun race but you could win a free entry as well. I will be giving away two entries for a Drenched 5K location of your choice. I'd love for you to choose Jacksonville, FL on August 11th (hint, hint)! The raffle will end July 19th. Good Luck!!
