  • The Boxing Yard
    A former member of the Puerto Rican national boxing team and a certified personal trainer, Hector Morales lends his considerable experience to The Boxing Yard. There, he leads fun and exciting classes in an old-school boxing gym with the telling motto, "Bare bones, high-quality, results-oriented training." Sixty-minute cardio-boxing classes work with a heavy bag but don't involve actual sparring. Instead, students simulate three-minute rounds of boxing with one-minute intervals of shadowboxing, hitting the heavy bag, working the speed bag, and doing mitt work.

  • CF Media
    At Jaxtoberfest, it's easy to eat bratwurst and drink beer casually—or competitively. The German-themed festival's brat-eating contest tests participants' stomach capacity, whereas the 5K Beer Run challengs runners to down brews at "chug stations" lining the race course. Revelers can also test their wits in games of oversize beer pong, beer barrel racing, and stein hoisting. Classic Bavarian music complements the games and food, providing an ideal backdrop for chicken dancing and polka. The family-friendly event also hosts fall-themed activities for kids, such as pumpkin bowling and pumpkin painting.

  • Drenched 5K
    There's no better way to cool down on a run than throwing some water on your face or, in the case of Drenched 5K, speeding through a misting tunnel, traversing a sprinkler minefield, navigating a foam zone, and zooming down a 100-foot slip 'n' slide. In cities across the country, participants of all fitness levels can hit the pavement during a soaking-wet sprint that culminates in an after-party with drinks, entertainment, and a huge water balloon fight inspired by Songkran, Thailand's soggy New Year's celebration. After the race, participants take home their race T-shirts and sunglasses. A portion of the proceeds goes toward local charities.

  • AdLib Luxury Tours & Transportation
    A lantern glows softly up ahead, clenched in the undead hand of a ghost?or rather, an actor embodying a local ghost. A cluster of tour-goers follows the "ghost" and his lantern through streets, and alleyways as he reveals the tragedies that unfolded in them. This is the River City Haunts Ghost Tour, one of 65 historically based tours put on by AdLib Luxury Tours & Transportation. The walking and driving tours weave through different parts of Northeast Florida, focusing on cultural aspects. In addition to the tours, AdLib provides transportation for visitors in luxury coaches.
