The Sand Blaster 5K Obstacle Fun Run sends teams of up to 100 runners on a fun-filled 5K run, jump, climb, and crawl, all for the benefit of the United Way of Cowlitz and Wahkiakum Counties. Participants scale net walls and ledges, slosh through mud, and leap over sand dunes before crossing the finish line and relaxing with a complimentary beverage, goody bag, custom medal, and commemorative finish-line photo. Kids enjoy sports activities stations while adults enjoy a beer garden, and participants of all ages enjoy barbecue and DJs. In addition to challenging themselves on the racetrack, participants show off their strength in events such as the tire pull and tug of war.
