If you wanna pop your "Bon Bon" on the Beach with Pitbull for free, you're gonna have to pay your way by running 13 miles over a period of several hours in sweltering, heatstroke-inducing SoFla heat.
The deal: On Sunday, December 11, Mr. Worldwide will be giving a performance on Miami Beach for the Dodge Latin Music Miami Beach Half Marathon, part of Competitor.com's 28-city Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series.
The catch: Only registered runners will be allowed to attend Pit's beach party at no additional charge.
Which means, it's not really free. Registration alone costs $95 to $125. And that doesn't even take into account the massive medical bills that you'll be paying after trying to drag your totally out-of-shape ass across the finish line.
"The course starts and finishes at Lummus Park in South Beach," the Dodge Half Marathon press release explains, "and takes runners across both the Julia Tuttle and MacArthur Causeways, which stretch over the sparkling Biscayne Bay."
"After crossing the finish line, runners will join family and friends to celebrate their accomplishment at the finish line festival headlined by Pitbull."
So yeah, you'll probably succumb to catastrophic dehydration and total organ failure before you reach the Beach. But if really, really, really think you've got the stamina to survive a 13-mile run and poppin' your "Bon Bon" with Pit ... Dale!
