  • MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass
    When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. MetaBody created a real-life version of that ticket with the MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.

  • Electric Foam 5K
    Electric Foam 5K isn't measured by time, but by bubbles and beats per minute. Foam cannons and speakers line the roughly three-mile course, keeping pulse rates high with booming EDM anthems. By night, murals of lights and tree installations help guide participants of all ages as they run, walk, dance, or let their moms push their strollers to the finish line. Everyone is free to go at their own pace, and encouraged to dress in their most flamboyant costumes. At the finish line, they won't be greeted with a finish time or the disappointed glare of their P.E. teacher, but with an after-party of live DJs spinning such artists as Calvin Harris, Deadmau5, David Guetta, and others?all before one last avalanche of foam engulfs the dancing throngs.

  • 80's Retro Run
    Crowds of people decked out in leg warmers and bandanas, sporting popped collars on their Members Only jackets and rocking Wayfarer shades. It sounds more like a Duran Duran video shoot than a fun-run, and that's the gist of the 80's Retro Run. Set to a soundtrack of the decade's best tunes, the throwback 5K celebrates the years that gave the world MTV and landfills full of unsolved Rubik's Cubes. Contestants are encouraged to dress up like their favorite '80s icon as they run, walk, or moonwalk their way to the finish line. After they've completed the course, revelers can shake it up at the after-party, where cover bands and DJs kick out nostalgic jams. Proceeds from the Retro Run benefit local charities, and all contestants receive their own headband, an event T-shirt, and an excuse to show off their collection of antique slap bracelets.

  • Sparkle Me Wild 5K
    Runners race down the road, leaving splashes of color behind them and on one another. Such is the scene at every Sparkle Me Wild, a color run event incorporating a whole lot of sparkle. During the 5K race itself, they arm their runners with packets of pure color, made from a mix of glitter and dyed, organic cornstarch. Though Sparkle Me Wild is a fun way for families to cut loose together, it also supports local charities, as well as GO FAR (Go Out For A Run), a national charity that fights childhood obesity.

  • color my run
    It's not every 5K run in which participants look like they've been tie-dyed by the end of it. But most runs are not this much fun either. As runners put one foot in front of the other during Color My Run, volunteers cover them with colorful dust, adding extra joy and a bit of silliness to an event where your finishing time isn't everything. That sense of joy also extends to the charitable recipient of each event as well, which is often a children's hospital.
