Event Description

FLOATING OBSTACLE COURSE! The Liquid Run is specially designed for you and your friends to splash, bounce, and bound through a floating obstacle course with over 60 challenging (but fun!) obstacles to traverse, all on top of clean, clear water! We'll have fun for all your family and friends including a Free Play Zone, Kids Zone, Music, Food Trucks, and much more! The Liquid Girls will even be on hand to help you find the Liquid Libations Beer Garden. It's all happening in sunny SoCal, so get your crew together and make a plan to get out there and get soaked! 

You won't get some silly headband or shirt, since shirts are not required at the Liquid Run!

You will get an awesome Liquid waterproof phone bag that allows you to Tweet, post, and share all of your selfies safely while on the course without the fear of getting your precious phone wet. While we’re talking about selfies, post yours to@theliquidrun and use the hashtag #theliquidrun.You will also receive a set of super stylish sunnies, so you won't have to worry about losing your $200 pair to Davy Jones. To complete your fantastic Liquid look, be sure to wear the floaties also provided in your bag.
