Review of Wet n Wild 5K by Mark Garcia

Posted by: on August, 22 2012

I have to agree with the first poster. All of our t-shirts STILL stink like rubber/chemicals this many months later. It’s a bummer, too, because the graphics and technical shirt quality are great. But the t-shirt can’t be worn as the smell gets in your nostrils and on your skin.

Overall, this was one of my favorite runs so far. Two things…the water was NOT knee deep. I am 6′ and the water was definitely waist level. Made for much slower times. But it was fun running through Knott’s. I will probably do this race again next year. BUT FIX THE SHIRT PROBLEM!
