When we heard about the Vampire 5K we knew we had to participate. I love taking part in community events, especially when they benefit a good cause. The Vampire 5K is not your ordinary charity event. Instead of waking up early to start your jog by 7am to race to the finish line and go home, you get to join fellow community members for a fun event starting at dusk and ends when the party is over.
The Vampire 5K – April 26, 2013
5 cities, one night……Which side will you choose? The run begins at dusk and ends under a full moon. Participants may register as either a Vampire or Citizen. Citizens in all white start in one location, Vampires in black in another. The paths converge at an unknown location and then the hunt is on! Vampires will try to “convert” citizens by pulling both white garlic flags they will be carrying while running through fog and red powder zones. Participants will then “celebrate eternity” in the post-run Red Dusk after-party with music, red colored beverages, fun awards, and make-up artists on-hand ready to “transform” any willing citizens into new Vampires. The V5K benefits Red Cross blood donation services and local blood banks. Dallas, Denver, LA, DC and Atlanta.

You can create your own ‘clan’ if you decide to join the vampires or make a ‘team’ of citizens and run for your lives! We created a clan of vampires to chase after the citizens of Dallas. I’m most excited about running through the red powder zones for the pretend blood. Of course the after-party is sure to be a hit after running under the stars and a full moon.
If you are located in the DFW, Texas area then I invite you to join our clan – Children of the Night and come out on Friday night, April 26th, for some vamp excitement! Don’t forget to use code MOMMAVAMP while registering to save $10 off the fee. If you are located in the Denver, DC, LA or Atlanta area then I encourage you to create your own team and invite your friends to join you to support the Red Cross.
One lucky winner will receive a free registration to one of the five Vampire 5Ks of their choice for April 26, 2013. The winner will select between the five participating cities.
Full Disclosure: I was provided with a complementary admission to the Vampire 5K in Dallas. All opinions are 100% mine. Paying for the rest of my family to join the Vampire 5K and sharing our experience shows our enthusiasm for our community, no other compensation received.
