Cox Auto in Bradenton is Proud to Sponsor the 2013 Beach Beast 5K Obstacle Challenge!

February 11th, 2013 by

The Beach Beast 5K is not your ordinary 5K walk and run—it really is a beast of an event! The premier Tampa area car dealer, Cox Auto in Bradenton, Florida, is proud to sponsor the 2013 Beach Beast 5K and values this chance to give back to the community. The race, which will take place at the Fort Lauderdale Beach Park on April 6, 2013, is an intensive obstacle course that challenges participants for five kilometers of sand, water, and waves. Proceeds of this Fort Lauderdale race benefit the Volunteers of America, Karma Athletes, and the SPCA.

This rigorous 5K will test participants’ intellectual and physical strength. The race is both rough and fun, with the beautiful white beaches of the renowned Fort Lauderdale Beach as the setting, and the natural elements, as well as man-made obstacles, providing plenty of challenge.

The Beach Beast Benefits Local Communities

The Beach Beast 5K obstacle race was created to help generate opportunities in the local communities. This race benefits the Volunteers of America, which is a non-profit organization that serves Florida residents in need, such as veterans, the homeless, the elderly, and the mentally ill. The Volunteers of America organization provides housing, outreach, and supportive services for those groups in Florida. The race also supports the KARMA Athletes, which is an organization of athletes dedicated to making positive changes in their local communities. It also supports other local charities such as the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. As a Beach Beast sponsor, Cox Auto is honored to be able to help these charitable organizations make positive changes in the local communities.

Who Can Participate in the Beach Beast?

The obstacle course is made for people of all athletics levels, but getting through the course will take a fair amount of effort. Participants will be required to run, jump, and swim through the water to compete for trophies, but those not interested in going for gold can just skip obstacles they’re not up for. Just look out for surprises!
