Splash Bash 5k Run & Walk

Threshold Pace Timing is putting on their first race and the proceeds will benefit the Magical Mix Kids. This local non-profit raises money for terminally ill children and their families from the Cedar Valley to go to Disney World. Come join us for the Splash Bask 5K run/walk. This 3.1 mile chip timed race will take place at George Wyth State Park at the Rotary Shelter and end at the beach! Going into the water is optional but highly encouraged.

Packet pick-up on the day of the race will begin at 8 a.m. at the Rotary Shelter at George Wyth State Park. A map of the race route is posted to the event page and also on the registration page.

There will be a FREE 1-mile kids race at 9:00 a.m. If you have a child participating in this, please arrive by 8:30. This is for kids up to age 12. A shirt will not be included. We are going old school with the timing for the kids and will be using popsicle sticks! The 5K starts at 10:00 a.m. Kids ages 6-12 can participate in the 5K with an adult for $5 with the option of purchasing a shirt for $15.

The cost is $30 for adults, kids ages 6-12 that participate in the 5K with an adult are $5, ages 5 and under are no cost. The registration fee for adults includes a tank top shirt and there will be awards for the top 3 times in 10 age brackets. The kids only race is free and all participants and family members get a meal.

This family friendly event will include a grill out with food and freezer pops provided at the end and immediate family members can join in the food and fun. Bring a beach towel and do some sun bathing or enjoy the floating water mat provided. Or bring a lawn chair and hang out at the after party at the Rotary Shelter for the afternoon.
