Run the City 5K
June 15, 2017
Spectrum Sports Management is joining forces with the Insurance Office of America (IOA) to present the inaugural IOA Run the City 5K at NTC Park at Liberty Station. Runners across the corporate community, including businesses and nonprofit organizations, are invited to attend “San Diego’s Largest Office Party.”
IOA Run the City 5K will ignite excitement about fitness and health in the business community, bringing together teams of all fitness levels to improve their health in a fun way. According to the American Diabetes Association, at least 2.5 hours of aerobic activity each week could prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.
“With more than 80 percent of employees in the U.S. not exercising regularly, Spectrum Sports is taking the initiative to promote the value and importance of corporate wellness,” says Mike Bone, race director of Spectrum Sports. “By creating our partnership with IOA, we are reaffirming our commitment to reduce the rising stress levels of corporate communities.
“Our community-oriented race will provide the opportunity to build strong employee morale and relationships, while allowing organizations to take pleasure in the evening as a whole,” adds Bone.
The event will benefit the America Diabetes Association’s Greater San Diego Area, who will be involved in recruiting teams and assisting in educating the community to the benefits of exercise and stress reducing activities provided by the IOA Run the City 5K. The ADA knows that getting motivated is half the battle, which is why they offer strategies and ideas for taking the first step toward better health through daily activity.
The IOA Run the City 5K features a nighttime run followed by live entertainment and a beer garden for participants to enjoy. The race will begin at 6pm and is expected to finish up by 9pm.
The entry fee ranges from $30 to $40. Participants are encouraged to register for the race quickly before it sells out. runthecity5k.com
