Don Omar will perform during the inaugural MLB All-Star Zumba® experience on Sunday, July 9, which is being led by Beto Perez, the man who started Zumba®. "El Rey" is scheduled to provide a portion of the soundtrack for participants in the 90-minute class, where fans will torch calories and rock to contagious and upbeat rhythms. In addition to Don Omar, star DJs and on-air personalities from Y100 and TU 94.9 will also enhance the Zumba® experience with the guy who started it all in Beto Perez. Fans can register here.

Since 2009, MLB has incorporated a charitable 5K race into many All-Star Week festivities leading into the All-Star Game. This year, the Electric Run MLB All-Star 5K will be the first evening edition of the event and it will take place throughout downtown Miami starting at 8 p.m. on Saturday, July 8. Electric Run® is a concert-turned-dance party full of lights, music and surprises that ends with a festival beyond the finish line. In addition to the annual runs, last year MLB held the first-of-its-kind MLB All-Star Yoga to adopt a part of host city San Diego's culture. With the 2017 All-Star Game presented by Mastercard taking place in Miami, MLB is tapping into the local culture and holding the first-ever MLB All-Star Zumba® experience. Zumba® is the largest dance-fitness program in the world, with 15 million people taking classes on a weekly basis in 186 countries. Net proceeds of the Electric Run MLB All-Star 5K and MLB All-Star Zumba® benefit MLB Charities to support youth baseball and youth softball programming.

Additional sponsors of the Electric Run MLB All-Star 5K, presented by Nike, include 5-Hour ENERGY®, OxiCleanÔ, Nathan's Famous, T-Mobile and Gatorade. ARM & HAMMERÔ will be the supporting partner of MLB All-Star Zumba. Event details for the Electric Run and Zumba® are below:
