RSABG run offers chance to have fun and play hero
Dust off your cape, because Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden is hosting a Jr. Hero Run on Saturday, July 25.
You are invited to don a superhero costume, bring a water gun and prepare for a confrontation of epic proportions. Guests will become real-life heroes as they embark on a mission to invade a fortress and recover stolen coins.
Watch for lurking villains, armed with their own water guns and ready to foil your plans. There will be filling stations located throughout the winding 3k course, so you’ll have lots of opportunities to reload. The event will feature a base camp with a DJ, a Dale Bros beer garden, a pizza party along with other food, plus vendors, bounce houses and a minion caricature artist. Awards will be given to the three best superhero costumes.
Proceeds benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation as well as the Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden. The cost to participate is $20 if you register before July 24 and $30 if you register the day of the event. Kids two and younger get in free. If you’re a parent bringing children but not participating, you’ll need to purchase a spectator ticket for $10. You are also encouraged to follow the event’s Facebook site, because as they’ll be running several $5 off deals.
Groups of guests will take off in 15 to 30-minute intervals. The first wave begins at 7 a.m. and the last leaves at 11 a.m. The costume contest will begin at noon. You’re welcome to enjoy the base camp after-party until 3 p.m.
The Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden is located at 1500 N. College Ave. in Claremont. For information, visit www.jrherorun.com or call (909) 605-6889.
