The weather in San Antonio can be blistering hot, especially in the summer. So, by the middle of the season, you could feel desperate for a way to cool off a bit when you’re outside. While you could wish for snow as much as you want, it’s unlikely that that will happen for you. However, you can still get that relief you’re looking for when you come out to participate in the Winter in July 5K & 10K. It’s happening on Saturday, July 27, at 8 a.m. at the Wheatley Heights Sports Complex here in San Antonio, and you can register for the event now.
Running the 10K? You’ll pay $45 for registration. Maybe the 5K is more of your thing. In that case, you’ll only pay $35. If you can’t make it to the event, no worries – it only costs $40 to “run” the virtual race. And since you know it’s all going to benefit a great cause, this may be something that you want to look into. Oh, and if the little ones want to participate, they are more than welcome to come out to be a part of the fun. The kids’ fun run only costs $5, so make sure you bring them along. They are going to have a blast, and it’s a great opportunity for them to get a workout in.
Cool Off From the Heat
It’s San Antonio, so you may be wondering how you’re going to cool off if you’re running. Well, that all has to do with the course. This course has three full water stops with ice-cold water, which will give you the relief you’re looking for in the hot summer sun. You’ll also find cold Gatorade and cold towels, so there’s no way you’ll be uncomfortable in the heat. Sure, the weather may be at its hottest point in San Antonio right now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a break from the scorching temperatures and enjoy some ice-cold water while you run.
