The Divas Half Marathon and 5K – dubbed “the most fun and glam women’s running series in the nation” – is coming to Ontario on Sunday.
More than 3,200 women (and their “Diva-lovers” of the male persuasion) have registered for run which will begin at the Ontario Convention Center and head out to the Ontario Mills Mall before returning back to the convention center.
The half marathon and 5k event is expected to generate an economic impact of about $3 million to the region in direct and indirect spending, including hotel stays, dining, shopping and support services, Diva organizers said.
The event includes a two-day health and fitness boutique, a Diva Lounge, Post Race Party and more.
Ali Vincent, host of “Live Big with Ali Vincent” and first female winner of “The Biggest Loser,” is expected to be in attendance.
Runners in the half marathon will start at the Ontario Convention Center and head up into the Divas entertainment section with stations every half mile toward Ontario Mills then back to the convention center, where feather boas, tiaras and champagne will make crossing the finish line a festive affair.
