The Essex Region Conservation Authority is putting the call out to athletes of all ages and skill levels to enjoy the natural areas the region has to offer during the annual Wet & Wild Hawk run.

Taking place on Sunday, August 21st, participants can get involved in a wet and wacky 5 km walk/run at Holiday Beach Conservation Area.

This event is great for all ages and skill levels, and includes a Kids’ Dash for youngsters. Throughout the timed event, participants may run through misting stations, face a bucket brigade and the hoses of the Amherstburg Fire Department, or get hit by water gun snipers. At the end of the fun, participants will receive a Wet & Wild Hawk Run medal and free post-race meal and beach bash.

The event begins at 10am at Holiday Beach Conservation Area in Amherstburg. Athletes can register now for $35 or wait for race day registration, which is $40. Groups of five or more can also receive a $5 discount per person. Kids’ Dash admission is $5 and includes a water gun gift.
