Mingle de Mayo
The intensely fun Mingle de Mayo race is a challenge to the the mind, the body, the laundry, and traditional idea of what a race is. Even the starting line defies the definition of "line" by being a huge pit of foam where entrants begin their dash. Along the journey, runners encounter an even wilder array of terrain and obstacles, including mazes, vertigo walls, water ambushes, and flying pies. Stations serving bacon and margaritas pop up like a St. Bernard confusing mud for snow, giving contestants extra fuel to throttle through to the finish line. And after the messy melee is behind you, a free after party awaits where more games, contests, prizes, and food accentuate de-Mayo mingling.
