Drenched 5K Giveaway!

Earlier this week, I promised you something exciting...
Ever heard of the Drenched 5K?  Think 3.1 miles of water fight.  Doesn't that sound like fun?!
Check this video out and get excited, people! (If you're viewing this post in your email, the video might not show up.  Click on the title of the post to view it online.)

Water balloons, squirt guns and hoses, oh my!  I can't wait for this event to come to Columbus.

You're not in Columbus?  No problem!  The Drenched 5K will be in 7 other US cities throughout the summer:

Dallas- May 25
Columbus- July 6
Washington DC- July 13
Kansas City- July 20
Los Angeles- July 27
Denver- August 3
Atlanta- Details coming soon
Philadelphia- Details coming soon

Here's how it will work: you'll receive 20 water balloons when you pick up your race packet, fill them at home before you show up to run (or walk, or skip, or jump).  Should you desire, you can bring additional balloons and/or squirt guns with you!  Be prepared to get wet.  They don't call it "drenched" for nothing!  Keep your cell phones at home.  Waterproof cameras would be fun to bring.  Seriously, can you tell I'm excited about this?

I really love that the early-bird registration price is on the cheaper side compared to other themed 5Ks and kids under 12 are a discounted rate and kids under 5 are FREE

Here's the best part: The Drenched 5K gave me one entry (for any city) to give to one lucky reader! Who doesn't love free?!

Here's what you must do to earn an entry into the random drawing for the Drenched 5K: leave me a comment on the blog. 
The rest of the entries are optional: following me on the Twitter, tweeting about the giveaway, liking the Drenched 5K on Facebook (it is against FB's Terms of Service for "liking" a page to be mandatory in a contest) and following me on Instagram.

The winner will be chosen and notified by email next week on the 10th.

Since only one of you can win the free entry, I also have a $10 discount code for everyone else!  Enter the promo code DRENCHEDMOM to save yourself a little bit of money; it's the next best thing to free.  (As part of their ambassador program, the Drenched 5K will give me a kickback for every person who uses this code to register.) 

Registration hasn't opened for Atlanta or Philly, they haven't even announced dates yet.  When I get that information, I'll pass it on to you!  The discount code won't be valid in LA or Denver until May, so write it down someplace safe!

I will be organizing a team for the Columbus event.  If you'd like to be on my team, email me at and I'll give you instructions after I register and create the team.

Now tell me: What ammo will YOU be bringing to the Drenched 5K?  I'll have small super soakers in addition to my balloons...possibly additional balloons.  I'll have to see how heavy they are.


  1. Im the first comment cuz I love you the most! ... and my phone is water proof, so I'm bringing it to take video and pics!

  2. This sounds fun! I hope to be in town then so I'll throw my name in the pool!

    1. Oh and I'd probably bring a squirt gun.

  3. I'd bring more balloons!

  4. I just might do this! It looks fun!

  5. Hmm, I am close to Cbus... I think a squirt gun.

  6. This would be great with the family!

  7. 20 water balloons and more will lead to some interesting strategic placement of balloons. Are pins allowed ;-)

  8. Sounds like a good time and I think I'm actually free that weekend! I have a waterproof camera too!
