FARGO, N.D., Jan. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- SON Events together with Warner Bros. Consumer Products on behalf of DC announces the launch of the 2019 DC Wonder Woman Run Series, which will be held in as many as 10 cities across the United States and Canada, attracting upwards of 100,000 participants. The runs will feature 5k and 10k runs, with some locations featuring new half-marathons this year.
The DC Wonder Woman Run Series was designed to empower women, men and children from all walks of life to harness their inner Wonder Woman and unleash the Super Hero within. Last year, participants dressed in official DC Wonder Woman Run Series attire while also sharing their personal stories by connecting with the "I Am Wonder Woman" hashtag across social media.
"It was such an inspiring inaugural year for the DC Wonder Woman Run Series," said Mark Knutson, founder, SON Events, LLC. "To be among so many people, who shared a common bond around Wonder Woman -- an enduring representation of empowerment and love -- plus an affinity to active living, motivated our team to bring the experience to more cities across the country and Canada in 2019. Now is the optimal time for sponsors to join us on this journey filled with so many moments of celebration and inspiration."
In 2019, the races will first be held in Tempe/Phoenix, Ariz. on March 24, Dallas-Fort Worth, TX on April 28, Little Rock, Ark. on May 11, and Chicago/Gurnee, Ill. on June 9. More locations will be announced in the coming weeks. Registrants will receive an exclusive race attire kit and commemorative bib, and enjoy a pre-race expo and post-race finish line festival with live entertainment, plus complimentary photos, and an exclusive medal of completion to commemorate their accomplishment. Additional Wonder Woman branded apparel and accessories are also available for purchase to enhance runners' race attire. A virtual run will allow runners to participate even if they live outside the race cities. Additional details will soon be made available online.
