When they weren't busy winning Ironman triathlons and coaching athletes to national success, the trainers behind Multisports.com spent their time like many Americans: hanging out with their favorite pooches. Eventually, the team found a way to incorporate their four-legged friends into their runs, as well. Thus, the Petco 5K9 Walk Run was born. Now a national series of 1-mile and 5K runs, the dog-friendly events promote outdoor activity while raising funds for local animal welfare groups with the help of the Petco Foundation. In addition to hitting the course with their pets, participants can also discover the latest exercise innovations during a visit to the event's health and fitness expo.

TIME 4 YOU Fiscal and Physical Fitness is a business with the rare double mission of training your body and your wallet at the same time. Their workouts have a goal that might seem strange at first: the trainers want their clients to be in the gym for as little time as possible. They're not lauding minimal effort, though; they simply want their clients to spend as much time in nature as possible, so they train them outdoors. After a sweat session, they can sit down with clients and offer an opinion on their investment portfolios, just like famed investment banker Jack LaLanne.

Patriotic pomp and personal wellbeing collide at the 4th of July Firecracker Run. To celebrate our nation's independence, runners clad in red, white, and blue zip across downtown Novato, just as George Washington once zipped across the Delaware on America's first jetski. The 4-mile course winds down Grant Street, where the Independence Day parade kicks off after the last runner crosses the finish line.

The course itself carries on that fun vibe, too. Winding through city streets and local parks, the 5K route is dotted with hydration stations that dole out hot chocolate. Holiday music, a giant Santa inflatable, and snow blowers help to set
