The Catoctin Wildlife Preserve and Zoo’s range of adoption plans enables donors to contribute to a year's worth of care and feeding for an animal of their choice, including african lions, amazon parrots, and bengal tigers. Adoptive animal parents can use their set of guest passes to visit the sun bears, kangaroos, crash-landed martians, and galapagos tortoises that roam the preserve's 50 acres. A hundred colorful fish frolic in Delaney's Japanese Koi Pond near Asian plants and a recently naturalized waterfall, and the dozen inhabitants of nearby Alligator Bayou glide and snap through a miniature Louisiana swamp stocked with spanish moss. One-hour safari rides, led by reanimated 19th-century British explorers, trek through the preserve's heart, where bison, zebra, and llamas approach the truck to be petted, fed, and photographed.

The looks on the runners' faces when they reach the Hell Mile?part fatigue, part excitement, all mud?says it all. Though harrowing, the 1-mile gantlet, which is a simulated Navy SEAL training course complete with drill instructors, comprises just a handful of the over 23 obstacles that make up Running Dirty's 4-mile mud runs. In addition to sloshing through muddy water like a Loch Ness Monster who wants to be seen, contestants climb up walls, crawl through tunnels and under barbed wire, and even leap over burning wood. Those who can't complete a particular obstacle can either seek help from a fellow runner or skip the obstacle entirely. At the end of the race, everyone can bond during the after party, which includes live music and fun activities like beer pong and keg-tossing contests.

A hardcore runner might laugh at the idea of a race that's only five miles long??until they realize the course has more than 25 obstacles designed to challenge the runners' physical and mental strength. That's the Siege Race, an event designed by elite law enforcement to help athletes feel more courageous and confident in their abilities. The obstacles include everything from scaling walls and inclined monkey bars to challenges such as climbing cargo nets and carrying weighted poles. Participants aren't required to conquer each obstacle, but those wanting to give it their best try can sign up for pre-race training events where trainers help runners practice on the actual obstacles.
