Sparkle Me Wild 5K Hampton, VA

This July 4th we will be blowing the top off Hampton VA in true Sparkle Me Wild style!  We will celebrate our FREEDOM to the fullest in a one of a kind 5K, full of glitter, color and big bling at the finish!  Come one, come all…Teams, KIDS, Adults, Families, Military Groups!


Sparkle Time & Location: OK! You need to know this will be an AM event that will be early enough to not interfere with your holiday plans nor make you roll out of bed in the dark to get there in time!  Location is near the water and perfect for celebrating the 4th in color filled glory!  More info will be flying in soon.

Sparkle Swag:  With each registration you will get a one of a kind t-shirt that will make you sparkle and smile!  You will get one bag of color to throw at the start of the event and you will get much more where that came from, along the course!  And best of all, at our finish we treat you like a superstar…Medals for every registered sparkle participant!

You can register as a Team or Individual and SPECIAL PRICING FOR CHILDREN! Yes!

We are ALL about the little ones joining in on the celebration!  A portion of the proceeds from every event we have across this great country goes back to GO FAR (Go Out For A Run) a 501(C)3 non-profit children’s running club and curriculum that teaches children how to live happier and healthier lives by getting active!  So bring on the YOUTH!  And guess what mom’s and dad’s, your little one gets tired…YOU CAN TURN AROUND…no need to fret…your not timed!  We have no worries in Sparkle Me Wild, just pure sparkly fun! And we even have a stroller safe zone along the course for mom’s and dad’s pushing the littlest spark plugs!

Now… for those without the wee ones in tow, you can count on one awesome way to begin your 4th of July festivities with your friends and family! (And men, just so you know, the majority of the people who attend our events are female so this is the place to come if your looking to meet that special someone!)  You never know what sparks may fly in Hampton this 4th of July!  Bring your friends and lets celebrate the greatest freedoms we have in this beautiful country…celebrate Independence Day!
