In 2013, after I had my son. He is full of so much energy and loves to be outside. I started Play Loud Clothing to offer some cool shirts and hats for all ages while promoting a more active lifestyle. Our motto is "Get up, get out, and Play Loud." Soon after starting our clothing line, I decided to put together a fun run to help promote an active lifestyle. The Haunted Woods 5K is what we ended up putting together. I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience? This is a fun run, so don't stress to hard about training. There are some obstacles, mud, and scary things out in our woods. Work on your endurance and a little upper body strength. Most of all, just be mentally prepared to have the crap scared out of you. What?s your favorite part of your job? My favorite part is when other people get just as excited as I do when they see a new shirt design. I also love hearing how pumped people are to participate in the Haunted Woods 5K. When you put so much effort into something, it is very rewarding to know people appreciate what you've done.

When the sun finally sets, Glow in the Park gives the green light to runners and walkers, setting them loose during 5K races that raise money for local non-profit organizations. Equipped with, and indeed wearing, an arsenal of glow-in-the-dark goodies, participants beam through the darkness, their bodies blank canvases for multitudes of bright colors. They wade through crests of foam, burst through plumes of neon powder, and splash through puddles of glowing water sprayed by volunteers or radioactive fire hydrants. At the finish line, groups gather in a glowing mass to show off their new neon and dance to the beats of a live DJ.

Clean running clothes have no place at Mighty Mud Dash, a 5K-challenge course that beckons runners of all fitness levels to plunge through stretches of mud in search of glory. Friendly competition is encouraged as waves of runners forge a path through more than 20 rugged, slippery obstacles?including wall climbs, cargo net-covered crawls, 30-yard mud-filled trenches, and a sprawling tarp slide. Though the main race is only open to competitors age 14 and older, a scaled-down 100-yard obstacle dash welcomes children as young as 6 to test their agility and endurance. After the competition, participants gather for celebration and music at the post-race party, where they can rinse off or roll all over an expensive white velour sofa to a soundtrack of upbeat tunes. A portion of the proceeds from the event benefit the work of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, a non-profit organization working to conserve Texas's natural resources like its hunting and fishing grounds.

Throngs of excited runners crouch along the starting line, all dressed in pristine white T-shirts. As the Color in Motion 5K begins, the sea of bodies sets off along the course, where handfuls of purple-, blue-, and yellow-colored powder start flying in from the sidelines. The safe concoction of cornstarch and dye sprinkles onto faces, shirts, shorts, and skin, dressing runners in a technicolor haze. Teams or individuals make their way through the 5K course, and finish the race wearing a pallet of washable and biodegradable paint. Each race partners and benefits local charities, with racers running individually, in teams, or sponsored by their favorite Crayola color.

A night spent dancing to a DJ at the club burns calories and works up a sweat, so why not put the dance floor on a 5K course? That's exactly what Nocturnal Lands has done?participants run, walk, or dance their way through a race course illuminated by interactive light shows and pumping with electronic dance music from live DJs. After partying through multiple DJ stages, revelers finish at a raucous main stage after-party. Headliner DJ?s soundtrack the event on the main stage while participants celebrate crossing the finish line as a member of the Night Nation.
