Participants run or walk a 5-kilometer race, which winds through local parks. Kids surround the course and cool competitors with Super Soakers and water balloons. Runners are encouraged to wear goggles. Afterward, race organizers hand out awards for men’s and women’s best times and best goggles.

The race begins at 7 a.m. on Saturday, July 20th at Big Surf Water Park. Each participant should bring two items of non-perishable, healthy snacks, which are donated to the Children First Academy, which also receives all proceeds raised from the race. The local, non-profit school educates needy and homeless children.

Splash Mob 5K

The kids are lurking around each turn of the 5-kilometer course, their hands full of Super Soakers, water balloons, and other aquatic artillery. A group of runners comes into view, and suddenly it's like the zipper broke on a rain cloud. The children shower the race participants and help them fight the swelter of the Arizona heat. Those who don’t wish to be “hit” wear bright red and wave a white flag in surrender. The kids—who have been instructed to only aim for the neck down—let these ones pass sans moisture.

The Splash Mob 5K puts this cool, watery twist on the standard race. Not only does it keep participants cool and kids smiling, but it also raises funds for a good cause: the Children First Academy. This Title I school educates approximately 300 students, 68% of which are homeless and 100% of which qualify for free breakfast and lunch.

Customer Reviews

It was so much fun! I love that my son & family got to participate by spraying the runners. Then being able to soak in the wave pool afterwards was awesome!
