Wicked Fitness presents their 5K Run/Walk Capes and Crowns Edition. This 5K race is for all ages and will be held rain or shine. Wicked Hot Run is a USATF certified 5K course. On race day, participants will enjoy three terrains: paved roads, forest trails and sand. Currently, the finish line will be on the sand, tide permitting. Racers needing an instant cool down can be revitalized by taking a dip in the Atlantic Ocean. Palmetto Events and Timing is overseeing all professional times using chip technology. Live results available. Costumes and crowns are encouraged but NOT required. (Superheros, Capes, tutus, crowns, etc.)
Awards will be presented to the Top 5K male and female ages 16 and under and ages 17 and older.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit SOS Health Care and Project Lifesaver. Project Lifesaver is a transmitting bracelet worn by individuals that helps provide rapid response to save lives and reduce potential serious injury for adults and children who wander due to Alzheimer's, Autism, Down Syndrome, dementia and other related cognitive conditions.
