Drenched 5K - Looking for a few good spark friends to do DC with me!

Monday, November 19, 2012

I just heard about this awesome new FUNtastic way to work it and I'm looking for friends to do it with me!

What is DRENCHED??

Whether you are young, old, slow or fast, everyone has found memories of hot summers where the best way to cool off was a friendly spray of the hose, a ice cold bucket of water strategically poured over a friends head, water balloons being frantically filled and thrown, and water guns being brought out to battle.
Drenched is all about bringing everything you loved about those lazy summers back, an event where you can have fun with your friends and get healthy in the process!

Who is Drenched for?

Everyone who wants a healthy Drenching is welcome to participate. Expert runners and first timers of all ages and genders will start out hot and dry and end up healthier and cooler in the Drenched Finale 5 kilometers later.

This is one race where the finish line is just the beginning of your fun!

Form a team with friends, family and co-workers now for discounted registration and get ready for some serious water balloon flinging, slip ‘n’ sliding, water gun shootin’ fun at the Finish Festival!

Side note: After you have crawled through muddy obstacles and tie-died your entire body it will feel nice to rinse off at the Drenched 5K.

Can Anyone Do it?

Yes! Runners and walkers of all ages are welcome.

Check out the site to see if there is a city near you. There are going to be spark friends doing color runs and now drenched 5K's all over the country having FUN while working out. Who's in? What's NEXT?

Make it count sparkland!!!!!

    Oh Wow! Thanks. I didn't know the DFW area was having one. We just finally got on board with the Color Run. The mud runs with the obstacle courses are popular around here.

    Kal - what would be the greatest fun you could have on a 5k walk/run? Think you shuold come up wiht an idea and send it off to be tried! More fun than sitting in a seminar all day.

Spark could have speakers then set up booths with sponsors, Chef Meg, nutritionist Becky, Coach Nicole's/Coach Nancy's warm up then post run stretch, Or maybe a swim event. Since I like swimming, I would love to see more swim events!!

Our charity partners could be local food banks or something! You could be the NEXT spark employee.

Each spot could have some local independent restaurants set up booths to have a "Taste of Spark" May be the theme could be FREGGIES!!! Add trivia along the way and you can take time off your run if you get the answers right!!

Then they could have a final winner's run in Cincinnati like the tough mudder folks do! LOL ok I better stop typing now or I will have ideas flowing out of my ears & eyes!
