Early humans developed the ability to sprint in order to chase down sprightly prey and invented long-distance running to escape from slowly approaching glaciers. Follow in their fossilized footsteps with this Groupon.

On Saturday, July 13, runners meet at Arts Park to prepare for their race start time of 6:30 a.m. (half marathon and relay) or 7:30 a.m. (5K). The Hobbler races give beginning runners an entry point into racing with a primarily downhill run that ends with a post-race party. Massage therapists will be on hand to help runners work through any muscle pain. Registration includes a gender-specific athletic tech shirt, and runners who finish the half-marathon receive a custom medal. The Hobbler's half-marathon course is USATF certified.

Run13, LLC

For runners at the starting line of Run13, LLC's signature half-marathons, 10Ks, and 5Ks, it's all downhill from there. The organization plots many of its events on a breezy downhill route, giving beginning runners a leg up on their first race and experienced runners a better shot at a personal record. But runners aren't the only ones that benefit. The Racing Cane 10K, 5K, and 1K benefits children in the Dominican Republic's impoverished cane-shack communities, using shoe collections and race registrations to help them break out of the cycle of poverty. And for every race, the organization designates a charity to donate its proceeds to, often taking suggestions from its fans or the magic 8 ball that presides over all affairs.
