The Wet & Wild Hawk Run at Holiday Beach is a wacky 5K Walk or Run at this beautiful conservation area.  Will you get wet?  You betcha – throughout the beautiful natural course you will run through misting stations, possibly be hit by a water sniper, and encounter other wet and wild adventures along the way.

Holiday Beach supports rare habitat and endangered species such as the Prothonotary Warbler. Managed by the Essex Region Conservation Authority, Holiday Beach welcomes approximately 40,000 visitors each year. Its protection is vital to the health of our community.  Proceeds from the Wet & Wild Hawk Run will help us to improve our visitor services and implement wildlife habitat conservation projects. 

While it is timed, this event is a super-fun walk or run for all ages and fitness levels to enjoy - an awesome day of wet & wild fun! The first 200 participants will receive a Wet & Wild Hawk Run medal. All participants will receive free entry into Holiday Beach and a post-race lunch provided by our sponsors: Schinkels Meat Market, Lea & Maria's, and Subway Amherstburg.

Teams of five or more individuals will receive a $5 discount per person!

Racers who'd like a "dry" race can wear red. Please note, we cannot guarantee you will stay dry!

Refund policy: Please note that our event offers no refunds or deferrals.  Transfers would be the responsibility of the transferee.  No exceptions.
