Ventures Endurance, part of Gannett's USA Today Network Ventures, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC, have announced the first in-person DC Super Hero Run series. The multi-city, 5k event kicks off June 12, in St Louis, Mo., with DC Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman races. 

Ventures Endurance virtually launched the DC Wonder Woman Run in June 2020 under an official licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Consumer Products. The series has now expanded to include additional virtual and in-person races based on popular DC Comics and Warner Bros. characters.  

The 2022 DC Super Hero Run series welcomes runners to eight participating Six Flags Theme Parks across the nation. Participating parks include: Six Flags St. Louis (Eureka, Mo.), Six Flags Great America (Chicago), Six Flags America (Washington, DC), Six Flags New England (Agawam, Mass.), Six Flags Discovery Kingdom (San Francisco), Six Flags Over Texas (Dallas), Six Flags Over Georgia (Atlanta) and Six Flags Fiesta Texas (San Antonio). Each race traverses a 5k route on the grounds of the park. Following the race, participants are invited to a celebration with live music, photo opportunities, refreshments and other activities. The series will also offer a virtual “Run at Home” option for runners outside of those locations. 

“After two years of operating in a virtual format, we look forward to welcoming communities across the country to our first live event,” says Kaitlyn Greenleaf, vice president, USA Today Network Ventures Endurance. “We’re excited to partner with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to provide participants with an unforgettable racing experience.” 

Online registration for the 2022 DC Super Hero Run series is open to runners of all ages. Upon registration, live and virtual participants will receive an exclusive collection of Wonder Woman, Superman or Batman branded gear including a DC Super Hero-themed short-sleeve shirt, personalized bib, wrist cuffs and finisher's medal. Participants will also receive a special discount on single-day admission tickets to participating Six Flags parks, valid on Saturday and Sunday of race weekends. 

For the second year, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is the official charity of USA Today Network Ventures Event series.
