Next Saturday’s event, Run Away with Cirque Du Soleil, gives a new meaning to running away to join the circus. Locals get to run and walk with costumed performers from the six resident Cirque shows in Las Vegas.
The event includes a 5k run and a one mile walk at the Springs Preserve. All Vegas athletes can chow down on free refreshments from Whole Foods after the race.
But you can enjoy the festivities without lacing up a pair of running shoes. There will be:
- Music by the cast
- Photo opportunities with the performers
- Face painting
- A circus-themed play area for children
Trust me, it’s surreal to be competing with the baby from Mystere. But really fun, too, to see the performers up close and personal.
The cost is $30 for walkers and $40 for runners. The fare includes free admission to all the museums and galleries at the Springs Preserve.
