The Duck N Dodge is not your average 5K?it's chock full of gopher holes, a slip 'n' slide, and slingshot stands, and those who sport beards longer than 2 inches are treated like kings. On a course designated by flannel shirts, towels, bras, clothesline, and duct tape, runners tackle obstacles, solve challenges, and soak up mud along the way. The obstacles dare racers to scale mud-slicked ramps, leap fences, and rampage through Aunt Emmie's messy kitchen, where if you're not quick, you might get roped into dish duty. Once they cross the finish line sufficiently coated in mud, participants can refuel at the grub tub or snap commemorative shots in a photo booth. The Duck N Dodge 5K race is created for ages 13 and up, while youngsters can take part in the Duckling Dash which is intended for ages 6-12.

But the race is about more than just good ol' fashion fun. Because everyone who helps out on race day is a volunteer, the organizers are able to donate all proceeds to support charities including World Vision, Back2Back, and Warner Camp.

At a Glance

It's 7 p.m. on Thursday, and the lights have just turned off at Centershot Gun Range. A group of competitors can't see their targets, but they know that for a matter of seconds, each one will light up?first at 10 feet, then 20 feet, and so on, all the way up to 60 feet. This special Dark Shoot happens every week at Centershot, and it's one of the many ways the business establishes itself as more than a gun range. In addition, its staff hosts shooting leagues, and firearms instructors teach both private and group classes.

Silver Lining Aviation's certified instructors create adventures like this every day as they teach visitors to soar behind the controls of sport aircrafts such as weight-shift trikes. Silver Lining's team takes prospective pilots on introductory flights that allow them to experience aircrafts such as the Evolution Trikes Weight Shift Trike and nibble on different flavors of clouds. The aviation experts also sell sport aircrafts, which patiently wait onsite as customers work through custom ground- and flight-training programs. In most cases, the flight instructors prepare their pupils for aerial navigation in as little as two weeks. They also provide 24/7 support, and cook oil soup to feed hungry aircraft.

At West Michigan Skydiving Academy students start with a tandem skydive. A USPA-certified instructor jumps with them, guiding them through the freefall and parachute deployment. Once they've completed the appropriate amount of jumps, students can graduate to WMSA's more extreme air sports, such as freeflying, in which jumpers move through a series of positions during their freefall, including back-to-Earth, head-up flying, and head-down flying. There's also wingsuit flying, for which jumpers sport a suit equipped with extra fabric between the legs and under the arms. The suit, which is colloquially referred to as a flying squirrel or bat suit due to its resemblance to those animals, allows jumpers to quite literally fly through the air, whether from a plane jump or BASE jump point.
