EVENT DATE: Jun 16, 2013
The capital of California is being overrun by caped crusaders... for a good cause! Partnering with several local charities, Capital Road Race Management and Fun Run Group LLC. will host the first annual Superhero Run/Walk in downtownSacramento. You get to be the superhero for a cause you care most about. Superheroes 5K has partnered with local area nonprofits serving the youth of our region. You can support the nonprofit of your choice by donating when you register, setting up a fundraiser page and raising money on behalf of your favorite charity, and on race day make sure to rep your cause by decorating your cape unique to your charity. The bad guys will tremble on Fathers Day, Sunday, June 16th, 2013 as thousands of superheroes storm Capitol Mall in this larger than life 5k run. At each mile marker, you'll run by scenes from your favorite comic books and enjoy the music that has made our favorite superheroes light up on the big screen. At the finish line there will be prizes awarded to the best superhero costumes and those who were faster than a speeding bullet.
Get into the spirit early on with our ongoing contests, parties, and fundraisers. We invite all participants to host cape decorating parties, create Pinterest pages and post their unique superhero comics on our Facebook page. For those who want to earn a free ticket, give us your best “Clark Kent”! Whoever shares the best before and after photo (think business casual turns superhero) at work, will win a pair of tickets! And finally, follow the adventures of RunningMan, the leader of this Superhero 5k on Twitter and Facebook, as he makes his way around Sacramento fighting crime!
