Outside of a 6K, the best way to test people's endurance is to see how long they can listen to a radio play-by-play of a 6K. Take on a real challenge with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $25 for entry for one to the Six Flags kids' fun run (a $50 value)
- $40 for entry for one to the Six Flags adult 6K (an $80 value)
Both races begin at 8:30 a.m. on October 6 at Six Flags America in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. Entrants walk or run through courses that snake through the theme park, after which they can enjoy a day of riding the rides and enjoying live music and provided food. Runners will have access to showers immediately after the race, so they can enjoy the theme park while smelling fresh as a daisy or while bearing the pre-rollercoaster fragrance of distilled fear. Guests who dress in Halloween garb have a chance at winning a prize for best costume. All proceeds benefit DC Running Club's childhood-obesity program. Packet pick-up is tentatively scheduled for 9/29. Those who donate $10 or more to the 6K and fun run's childhood obesity fighters program can get a custom T-shirt, courtesy of race sponsors.
