You know you want this race to, we made it happen! 

In this 5K, every runner receives a water gun in addition to a race entry and shirt! Run with a Soak-N-Splash water gun or bring your own big, bad super-soaker! Run this fast 5K and get cooled off at one of our volunteer manned "soaking stations" and splash your fellow runners with your own water gun along the way! There will be water gun refill stations along the course, and an EPIC water gun fight at the end. 

This is going to be a CRAZY wet run! 

 This is a fun, charity event. This isn’t the Olympic Trials, by entering this race for charity you are already a winner and we applaud you! When you run, you bring FREEDOM to others! Thank you for your support!

It gets even better! We are holding this race at Kennesaw State University! They have a greenway that is absolutely beautiful! There is nothing like a good run where even the route is an experience in of itself! You get to run over bridges, next to a majestic lake and through a scenic forest! 

We will accept registrations all the way through till 15min. prior to gun start time. We also accept checks, cash and cards.

We have timing technology that will blow your mind! We not only have printable results (so you don't have to wait around to see if you placed) but when you go online to check your times you get your own personal page with all your data. THEN on your page is a video of you crossing the finish line...but not only that you get an awards certificate congratulating you on your achievement with your pace, rank, time etc. recorded too so that now you have that as a reminder to shoot for your next PR! But here is where it gets even better...ready? Ok, it will also be live stream! Why does this matter?? Because people who can't be there who you would love to be there can now watch you at home on YOUTUBE aaaand you have proof you were there and not telling a "Big Fish" story!! Yep! We wanted to capture this race so you can also remember what a fun time you had!

However, if there is lightning or other dangerous conditions that may compromise the safety of the runners or volunteers, the event may be delayed or canceled at the discretion of the race planning team.
