Naples Players New Year's Poppin Off Masquerade 5K

Sat January 5, 2019 NAPLES, FL US 34109 Directions
North Collier Regional Park
15000 Livingston Road

Can you think of a better way to celebrate the New Year other than joining a family friendly masquerade 5K  that not only gives everyone the LARGEST finisher medal in the state of Florida (a 7" glittery champagne bottle with real cork top and 2018/2019 spinner, please let us know if you know of a larger medal) but also part of the proceeds help lower income and disadvantaged youth to participate in The Naples Players community theater 

The race will be timed and there will be prizes awarded for top finishers in different age groups for both races.  But for the non runners we also have prizes for the best masquerade participants.  Since we are so proud to be able to help and partner with The Naples Players we are also awarding prizes for top 10 best costumes from the adults and top 10 costumes from children.  We are trying to inspire some creativity and some fun, because let's be honest dressing up is all kinds of silly fun.  

This is the first annual Poppin' Off Masquerade 5K and also the inaugural race for Bling Events which promises to bring amazing race events throughout the year with the blingiest of finisher medals and funnest post party races around that benefit local charities.  Our post race parties will have food, drinks, kids activities, and all kinds of things for the whole family.  Run and fun with a purpose.
