Upcoming Races for the Get You in Shape team
Nov. 3rd – 5k Foam Fest Dallas, Texas
I am so excited to find this event and share it with you all. It looks like TONS of fun & really for anyone! 5K Foam Fest is an amazing mix of foam, mud and obstacles thus making fitness fun. 5k Foam Fest is a fun and exciting challenge for the experienced and beginner runners alike. The 5k Foam Fest makes exercising an absolute party for you and your friends. Definitely check out the videos in the link below.
Proceeds from this race go to multiple charities both locally & nationwide. Much of the donations go to Shared Hope International which is a non-profit organization that works against human trafficking & aims to rescue and restore women and children in crisis.
It is $40 to register to run & there are several times that you can sign up. I plan on going to the early one. I’d sign up early if you are interested, because I foresee this one selling out.
