Are you worried about dealing with the battle of the bulge this fall and winter? You can start the season off on the right foot by taking part in some upcoming October 5k races. These races will test your limits and ensure that you stay trim and slim all season long. Think about how great you’ll look at Christmas time when you start getting in shape now.
Art Dart 5k Costume Run
It doesn’t get much more fun than the Art Dart 5k Costume Run. This race will take place at Cedar Beach Park on Saturday, Oct. 21, and it’s anything but a typical 5k. You can put on your favorite costume and hit the park for this race. There will be awards given out for best male, female, and group costume, so have some fun with it. The more creative you are, the more likely you’ll come home with a prize. There will also be a live DJ at the event, so get your groove on after you hit the finish line.
You have to pay to register, but the organizers will take some money off your registration fee if you create a team of at least four people. Paying full price isn’t the worst thing in the world, though, since the proceeds from the race go to the Arts Academy Charter Middle School. See, it’s running for a good cause. You can’t beat that.
Harvest 5k Run/Walk
The Harvest 5k Run/Walk will take place a day after the Art Dart 5k Costume Run. This is also at Cedar Beach Park, but it’s on Sunday, Oct. 22. First-time racers and improved racers will win special awards at this event. If you can’t make it to the park, virtual runners are allowed to participate as well. You can even be on vacation and run this race, so register and take part in the fun. Also, don’t forget that walkers are welcome. This race is all about participation, so participate any way you can.
All of that racing around from these October 5k events will get you tired. You’ll want to slip behind the wheel of a nice ride at the end of the run, and Scott Family of Dealerships in Allentown, Pennsylvania, can help. Visit us and we will help you find the perfect ride for all of your travels. Then, you will always be ready for your next adventure.
