Summer is a time for fun, sun, and hanging out with good people. So, what better way to grab a hold of summer than by joining a fun run? Events like the 5K Foam Fest are a great excuse to get out in the beautiful weather while enjoying the company of your family or friends (and maybe even making some new ones!). If you’re still on the fence about it, here are 5 reasons why you should join a fun run this summer!
1) To Get Active
If you’re looking to get active and improve your fitness, joining a fun run is a great way to start! Even if you’re not the biggest fan of running, you can still walk the course and enjoy being a part of such a fun and exciting event. And, if you can convince your friends or family to join you, it can be a fun and motivating way to get in shape together.
2) To Support a Good Cause
Most fun runs are organized to support a good cause, which is another great reason to participate! Not only will you be getting active, but you’ll also be giving back to an important cause. This year, for example, 365 Sports is teaming up with Make-A-Wish® Canada for the Canadian 5K Foam Fest tour. By registering for your local event and starting your fundraising team, you can help raise money for children with critical illnesses and have fun while doing it!
3) To Meet New People
If you’re looking to meet new and interesting people, a fun run is definitely the place to do it! With such a diverse group of people attending, you’re bound to find someone (or a few someones) that you click with. Who knows, you might even make some new friends for life!
4) To Spend Time Outdoors
In today’s day and age, it can be easy to spend most of your time indoors glued to a screen. However, spending time outdoors has been shown to have numerous benefits for your physical and mental health. So, if you’re looking to spend more time in the great outdoors, a fun run is the perfect opportunity to do just that!
5) To Have FUN!
At the end of the day, the most important reason to join a fun run is to have fun! And, with all of the different activities and attractions that fun runs have to offer, there’s definitely something for everyone to enjoy – even the little ones! While they may not be able to participate in the run itself, fun runs like the 5K Foam Fest haven’t forgotten about them! Kids 6 and under can try out the Bounce House and mini Inflatable Obstacle Course in the FREE Kids FUN Zone. That’s one of the best things about fun runs: they’re fun for the whole family!
The Bottom Line
Whether you’re looking to get active, support a good cause, meet new people, spend time outdoors, or just have some fun, there’s a fun run for you this summer! So, what are you waiting for? Register today and start planning your fun-filled summer adventure!
