  • The Tomato Bash
    Tomato plants are imperfect, yielding just as many inedible fruits as the healthy, tasty ones. The organizers of The Tomato Bash devised an alternative employment for the unworthy bounty, transforming the leftover tomatoes into ammunition for a massive ketchup making party. Participants are encouraged to sport silly costumes for the big event, as they are inevitably going to get utterly filthy. To kick off the festivities, revelers are entertained with a cadre of food trucks, beverage vendors, and DJ playing tunes, including rebellious anthems encouraging the tomatoes to throw themselves. At 3 p.m., the tomato foam machine outside of the tomato arena powers up, pumping the stage area full of bubbly, pink fruit foam. Then the hordes of goggle-clad contestants descend upon a large arena and lose themselves in a sea of red goo.

  • Nocturnal Lands
    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 Night Nation Run 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 DJs soundtrack the event on the main stage while participants celebrate crossing the finish line as a member of the Night Nation.

  • Color and Glow Run
    The Color and Glow Run could just as easily be called the Color and Glow Walk, or the Color and Glow Dance. It?s not important how fast racers finish the 5K course, what?s important is what those runners wear. As long as they sport a white T-shirt, they can enjoy a colorful or glow-in-the-dark makeover at the hands of the race?s volunteer crew.

  • CycleLife Studio
    CycleLife Studio's fleet of stationary bikes can set a pace that's comfortable for everyone from recreational cyclists to seasoned triathletes. Though each class's group format lends an air of camaraderie to the proceedings, individual students can adjust their bike's resistance level to ensure a fully customized experience. Set to fun and motivating playlists, the low-impact workouts torch calories and sculpt muscles without ever forcing you to bike by Old Man McGurn's cobwebby mansion again.

  • Color Me Rad
    Color Me Rad stages 5K races that transform runners into mobile rainbows by launching cheerful barrages of colored cornstarch. Each color station along the racetrack flings a new, nontoxic pigment at passersby, who wear white shirts to enhance the chromatic onslaught's costuming effects. Brilliant neon-blue, green, purple, and yellow clouds dapple participants along the way, and the race concludes with a prismatic finish-line finale as sprinters chuck colors at each other in celebration. The race's noncompetitive credo shifts the emphasis from speed to silliness, and a portion of its proceeds go to local charities. Upon registration, each runner collects a Color Me Rad T-shirt, sunglasses, sponsor gifts, and a race bib. Though they don't receive a gift packet, runners younger than 8 years old can sprint for free, provided they have a waiver signed by a guardian and won't give in to demands for gold from confused leprechauns.

  • SouthField Classic 5K Road Race
    Though the event itself is always held at the same location, the scenery at the SouthField Classic 5K Road Race Walk & Run changes every year. The beginner-friendly race exhibits the ever-shifting landscape that is SouthField: a 1,400-acre community that's planned to be built in staggered phases, much like a gingerbread house during an icing shortage. Each year's 5K winds down the community's secluded streets, showing off its new homes and tree-lined vistas. Afterwards, race organizers hand out prizes to the top individuals and teams.
