Rooted in the belief that an active lifestyle and healthy living are important at any age, the Getaway 5K/10K is an officially timed race, yet still a fun run (or walk) for everyone. From first-timers to seasoned runners, toddlers to the 50+, friends’ weekend to family reunion, there are events for all levels and ages.
The very first Getaway 5K/10K Race took place in February of 2017 in beautiful San Antonio, TX. Since then, the number of runners – and locations – have expanded, with races in Tampa/St. Petersburg and the Boulder/Denver area…and more locations planned for 2019! With the help of some really amazing local running communities in these cities, in just 18 months, the number of Getaway 5K/10K runners has more than tripled – and continues to climb with each race!
In 2018, all 10K participants will receive a 1/4 zip pull-over jacket in a new, heathered-orange color scheme as their race premium! The 1/4 zip will feature an embroidered logo, thumbholes and a back zipper pocket to hold items while you run. The sweat-wicking material will be perfect whether you’re training for your next 10k or hanging out with friends!
All other race levels (5K and Kids Fun Run) will receive a race t-shirt as their premium. New t-shirt color for 2018 – racers receive a bright heathered-orange event t-shirt and this lightweight soft cotton t-shirt is the coolest race shirt you’ll receive yet. It’s the perfect addition to your collection!
Finishers of the 5K and the 10K will receive a race-specific medal featuring our eye-catching logo – designed using hefty metal and hanging from a high-quality, custom ribbon!
Runners have so many races and themes to choose from throughout the year and many require travel, if you don’t live nearby. So, we thought: “Instead of runners traveling to one city for the race, why doesn’t the race travel to lots of cities for the runners?” And – voila! The Getaway 5K/10K was born! The goal was to host a series of really fun races, with events and activities for all ages, followed by an awesome after-party, in some of America’s most beautiful and scenic travel destinations, many times throughout the year.
We’re proud to say that the support we’ve received in such a short period of time has been incredible! From ‘repeat runners’, to Getaway Race Agents, to good old word of mouth – YOU are the reason this race is growing.
