  • USRA Half Marathon Series
    The USRA Half Marathon Series spans 25 cities, where locals unite to test their competitive spirit in distance road races suited for runners of all physical endurances. Runners can choose from a half marathon or a 5K. Once they cross the finish line, racers in multiple age categories can snag awards for a job well done, regardless of whether they ran individually, as part of corporate teams, or to fundraise for a sanctioned charity program. Postrace activities also include live entertainment at a finish line party.

  • Tough Dash
    Boasting muddy obstacles and live gladiators who attempt to slow down competitors with impromptu jousts, the Tough Dash isn’t your average weekend 5K race. As participants trek through mud pits and strength-testing obstacles, microchips track their time, adding a fun competitive edge to the event. The runners aren't the only ones who get to join in the fun, however; spectators are encouraged to soak runners and unfortunate pedestrians who accidentally took a wrong turn with water balloons and water guns. A post-race celebration regales runners with food, beverages, and prizes for the top male and female times and the best costume. Proceeds from this event benefit the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital.

  • Zombie Buffet 5K
    Before Zombie Buffet 5K, the zombie apocalypse was simply a tall tale played out in movies and among survival enthusiasts. Now, the deliciously horrific fantasy has been realized in the form of a fun and challenging 5K. First, runners must choose a side—either traverse the course as a runner, or move about the infected habitat as a sprinting or roaming zombie. Each runner gets two health flags, which zombies try their undead best to steal. When runners lose both flags, they become zombies and must then hunt down their fellows in search of other flags. The zombie with the most flags in each starting wave wins and goes home with the happy knowledge that they are the fittest of the unfit. The top three runners in each wave who finish with at least one health flag still intact will win the running division. Regardless of their alignment, all participants get swag such as a Zombie Buffet 5K T-shirt, a silicone bracelet, and dog tags, but the running winners and zombie winners are bestowed additional secret grand prizes.

  • Run or Dye
    Run or Dye is making race running a little more colorful, one major city at a time. This 5K is divided up into four separate courses of varying lengths, each designated by a separate color?which also reflects the color of safe, eco-friendly powered dye the participants get splashed with. At the end of the race, they'll cross into the aptly named Dye Zone?a polychromatic free-for-all where fluorescent color is thrown freely from all sides, allowing runners to splash their fellow runners or get colorful revenge on their friends, family members, and any cranky art-history teachers that happen to be walking by. Unlike some races that rank runners by time, Run or Dye only measures success in color and fun. While the safe-to-eat dyes should wash out of clothing, runners are encouraged to wear things they don't mind getting dirty, preferably in white, gray, or another neutral color to give the dyes maximum visibility.

  • Hit and Run 5K
    Here are the sounds you'll hear at a typical marathon: huff, puff, wheeze, snort, repeat. Here are the sounds you'll hear at the Hit and Run 5K: sploosh, boing, splat, whoopee, and other onomatopoeias that haven't yet been invented. Less like a race and more like running through a living cartoon, the Hit and Run 5K's obstacle course of inflatable onslaughts has been known to "make ninjas cry." Dodging, ducking, leaping, and balancing across a wet-and-rubbery battlefield, contestants face formidable foes such as the giant spinning balls of the Duck or Dive, the unreliable puffy poles of the Wobble Walk, the flying wet menaces at the Whacking Wall, and the Bouncy Bridge, which is kind of like London's Tower Bridge if it were any fun. All contestants receive their own spiffy T-shirts and matching headbands?a fetching ensemble that instantly deflates roving dodge balls?along with a hearty packet of deals from the race's sponsors.
