Review of Wet n Wild 5K by

Posted by: on August, 26 2013

I’ve done this race 3 years in a row. This year it was at the La Mirada Regional Aquatic Center. Packet pickup was very organized. I loved the cotton tee even though the website said it was supposed to be a tech tee. They had a little warm up before the first wave at 7:30 am. The race started a little behind schedule. The run was mostly on wet grass which flew everywhere. We ran up and down the park basically. The best part was the “lazy river” finish. I love that water finish because it’s so refreshing and different from other 5Ks. Their medals are always nice and heavy which I like. At the finish there were also vendors that gave out freebies which is cool. I will continue to do this race every year because they are so organized and it’s always a fun race. My favorite venue was last year at Knott’s Soak City!
