Excited to be part of DivaDash! Love the idea of an all female event where we can have tons of fun, dress up and have a blast! Simply cannot wait!
BRING ON THE MATCHING HOMEMADE COSTUMES!!!!
Straight from their website, here is a little info about the Diva Dash. Forget barbed wire, fire pits and mud. We’re talking an adventurous women-only 5K run dotted with obstacles sure to challenge your agility, balance, strength and speed. Jump, climb, swing, and DASH your way to the finish line, but do it your way.
- Join a competitive wave and battle for a top finish and prize*. Or saunter along at your own pace. We’ll time your efforts (if you want), but there’s no pressure to finish fast, so have a great time as you run, walk, jog or slog your way to the finish.
- Tackle tough obstacles that challenge or scare you. Or take the easy route. It’s your call. Different degrees of difficulty on some obstacles give you the chance to make the Dash as hard…or easy…as you want.
- Sign up with your favorite ladies so you can be in the same starting wave. And don’t forget costumes! Tutus, boas, bling, and whatever other embellishments you can dream up are all the rage at the SHAPE Diva Dash.
GETTING TO SANDWICH, IL
For those from Chicago, you might have went... "where is Sandwich?" like i did when seeing the race location. Well, it is about 30 minutes west of the Naperville/Aurora area (aka: The Outlets). It is also about 15 minutes from Raging Waters Water Park. Consideration for a girls night out might be in order where you could stay in a hotel (consider one of the fancier Best Western's I have ever seen) or somewhere in Aurora/Naperville. You can hit the outlets, have dinner in downtown Naperville and then split a hotel which it appears it would only be $20/person for a night if you have 4 people!
Something to consider!!!
