Ten 5ks in 24 hours?? They say, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” I don’t know about that, but “what doesn’t kill you” definitely gives you a great story to tell! And the Death By 5k Challenge certainly did not disappoint in that regard. The challenge to run a 5k every 2.5 hours across a 24-hour period is one I will NEVER forget!! It was truly a unique experience; read on for a glimpse inside how it all went down.
We splashed. We dashed. We had a SOAKING WET good time in Brookhaven, MS!! I came “locked and loaded” and was drenched by the time I left. (Mostly because I started a water gun fight, buuuuutttttt, none the less!) This race was advertised as “the wettest 5k of the year,” and that promise was definitely fulfilled. 🙂
Firecrackers in flight, this race was an early morning delight! From the fun Independence Day theme to the custom-designed hinged finisher medals, this event fully embodied (pun intended) the Bodies Race Company (BRC) slogan: Fun. Family. Fitness.
This local 5k is most famous for its post-race refreshments! The Watermelon Classic draws a pretty large crowd every year, and this year was no exception. With 800 runners and more than 200 walkers, well over 1,000 watermelon enthusiasts earned their post-race treat in 2019!!
You say tomato, I say tomato!! The Tomato Festival 5k is THE quintessential Mississippi hometown race. Complete with unique tomato-themed awards and a top-notch festival to enjoy after the race, this is a “must-do” event!
DO THE HUSTLE!! Do-dah-do-do-do-do-do-do-do! This hero-themed race really brought out the super-hero in all of us! I know a certain Wonder Woman that had a grand ole time!
I can’t think of a better way to spend a portion of Memorial Day Weekend than by participating in a 5k to honor the men and women who paid the ultimate price for our freedom. In its second year, the Run to Remember offered a 10k, 5k and 1 Mile Kids’ Fun Run. Defining Moments Events selected the Wounded Warrior Project as their charity of choice.
There’s a new race company in town, boys and girls!! Bodies Race Company prides itself on hosting fun events with great apparel and a family-friendly atmosphere. They also encourage all fitness levels to participate, and EVERYONE receives a finisher medal.
6.2 #MilesOfSmiles is the perfect way to describe this fun Coca-Cola themed event! A tradition, nearly 40 years in the making!
Chugga, chugga, chugga! Choo choo! Three distances, three cities, across three fun-filled days! ALL ABOARD!
