Whether young, old, slow or fast, everyone has fond memories of hot summers when the best way to cool off was a friendly spray of the hose, an ice cold bucket of water poured over a friend’s head, water balloons being frantically filled and thrown, and water guns being brought out to battle.
Drenched is all about bringing everything you loved about those lazy summers back, an event where you can have fun with your friends and get healthy in the process!
Everyone who wants a healthy Drenching is welcome to participate. Expert runners and first timers of all ages and genders will start out hot and dry and end up healthier and cooler in the Drenched Finale 5 kilometers later. Kids are welcome (5 and under run FREE and kids 12 and under ALWAYS GET $30 ENTRIES!)
Yes! Runners and walkers of all ages are welcome.
See our course map. Every Drenched course is different, you will run through “hot” zones and “drenched” zones where you may encounter misting tunnels, sprinkler zones, foam and bubbles, spectator “sniper zones” and fire hose zones manned by real firefighters! Along the way drench your friends and other participants with your water weapon which can be refilled at filling stations along the course.
Get ready for a wild and fun after-party with music, cool refreshments and the largest water balloon fight in the world!
Friends and family who like the dry side of things can register to hang out in the spectator zone for free and help us DRENCH the runners.
**Spectators may also buy a Festival Pass which includes a tee, packet of 25 water balloons, sunglasses, one cold beverage, and access to the “water sniper zone” and after-party for only $20 online and $30 day of.
No. Why? Because:
Yes! Part of the proceeds from Drenched benefits local children’s hospitals and medical organizations. *In some locations we also organize fundraisers to support local firefighters.

NO! You can choose the first option to login in as a guest. We just need your email address so that we can send you the confirmation sheet that you print and bring on race day. “Creating an account” just means we get the information we need to get you registered. No strings attached!
Go through steps 1-3 and on step 4 click the button at the bottom of the page that says “add another registration”. You can then fill out the necessary information for each family member. By signing up and paying for your entire family or group at once you will save $5 on each entry!
We STRONGLY encourage people to attend one of our DRENCHED pre-race packet pick-up parties! DRENCHED is all about fun. The only thing we require is that:
We will not have filling stations on-site so if you cannot make it to a pre-race packet pick-up you will need to fill and bring your own balloons ahead of time.
YES! Please send an email to email@example.com with “Transfer Entry” in the subject line:
You will be issued a refund if you can supply medical evidence of being hit by a 100-pound water balloon…in other words, no. Sorry.
Your head is going to be water logged if you read anymore. It’s time to sign up! Grab your friends, choose your weapon, and find an event near you!
