Awesome Water-Drenched Obstacle Course
Spitting directly in the two-faced Janus of climate change and a wretched summer, Drenched 5K Race gives you the chance to beat the heat harder than a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest (Google it — it’s happened). Inspired by the water wonderland of the legendary two-day celebrations of Thai New Year, Drenched 5K benefits Children’s Hospital L.A. as it puts you through a gauntlet of slip-and-slides, sprinkler zones, oodles of foam and puddles of bubbles, misting tunnels, water-balloon fusillades and the peril of water snipers. You’ll trade your hyperthermia for hypothermia as you enjoy a brisk run through the park bedecked with classic rock DJ’d by jocks from 100.3 The Sound, cold drinks and comestibles, and a completely refreshing absence of waterboarding. (Race bib and water-balloon filling party Fri., July 26, at Road Runner Sports, 12115 Ventura Blvd. Studio City.) http://rundrenched.com.
