Runners and walkers of all ages, sizes, and abilities will cool off this summer in the Drenched 5K coming to Victoria on August 30th. The Drenched 5K is all about summer fun.  Participants will run or walk the 5k course at Riverside Park’s Special Events Area. When they’ve crossed the finish line, they’ll be in the middle of the biggest water party of the summer, with a water balloon fight, blasting water hoses, water slides, and a giant foam pit. Families are encouraged to get active together, with discounted entries for kids 12 and under. Kids 5 and under run FREE! For those not interested in building up a sweat, there is a free spectator zone where observers are allowed – and encouraged - to drench participants along the way.

The Drenched 5K kicks off National Hunger Action Month activities in the golden crescent area and benefits the Food Bank of the Golden Crescent, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing food for the hungry in the golden crescent area.

Registration is open now at
