A friend roped us into doing a race, but knew enough to make it worth our while. Orange County's leg of the FroYo 5k is a dash like no other, because you're guaranteed Yogurtland at the end of this road! What better way to kick off a Saturday than getting both exercise and dessert before lunchtime?
The sweet location is none other than Verizon Amphitheater, down the street from Irvine Spectrum. Each race location benefits a different charity. This time, 15% of gross profits goes towards the Mommy & Me Cancer Foundation: a group that provides support for mothers with cancer, raising children. If that doesn't compel you to put on sneakers and go, pretend there's bacon.
Participants will party down with DJs spinning from the moment you arrive, throughout the course and at the finish. Misting tunnels, appropriately called FroZones, are also strategically placed along the race path. Skittish participants will be pleased to know that organizers enabled privacy timing for this race. This means race times are tracked by bib number, not name. Only share results if you really want to.
Currently, pricing for this race is at $39 until April 1. You can get a $5 discount by heading over to their FAQ page. Workouts are already hard to wake up for, but this incentive makes it win-win!
