Wear white, and be prepared for that shirt to never look the same. That's just about the only rule of the Color Blaze 5K, a technicolor event that's a little different than the standard run. For one, contestants don't have to run at all—in fact, they can mosey, lollygag, skip, crawl, jog, and backflip their way along the course. Rather than determining the best time, the non-competitive race is about the experience itself. At each successive mile, Blaze Zones powder participants in biodegradable—and even edible—colors, creating an army of fleet-footed Jackson Pollocks. Proceeds from the event benefit local charities, and an afterparty welcomes the newly prismatic to dance the day away in their freshly illustrated get-ups.

The Wapakoneta Firecracker 5K unites racers in the name of healthy habits and a healthy community. Hosted by the Friends of the Wapakoneta Public Library organization, the annual race sends participants galloping around Wapakoneta in an effort to promote fitness and well-being among all community members. The 5K's proceeds have an impact long after the last racer has crossed the finish line, as they get funneled into such efforts as summer reading programs, outreach programs, and youth events.

Pretty Muddy's founders designed their 5K obstacle course with a simple goal: to provide a stress-free opportunity for women to cut loose and have a blast in the mud with their friends. Women run or walk at their own pace, encountering low-pressure architectural obstacles along the way that are devoid of hay, splintering plywood, and axe-wielding trolls. The finishers sport post-race looks ranging from mud-drenched to only lightly splattered, depending on their course strategies.

Though the course architects designed obstacles to be fun, Pretty Muddy team members are stationed at each one to provide assistance, and obliging signs point out alternative routes for those who’d rather keep walking. The team often reminds participants that it isn’t about how many obstacles they surmount, but about sucking every drop of fun out of the experience.

At least two aid stations are present on every Pretty Muddy course to keep everyone well hydrated. After they finish, muddy ladies can compete for costume prizes, grab a drink and listen to the music, or free themselves of icky attire at onsite rinsing and changing stations.

Despite its name and its kangaroo mascot, Jumpy’s Fun Zone's wide range of attractions offers families more to do than just jump. In the 5,300-square-foot Laser Zone, players shuttle through an industrial warehouse, ducking behind barrels and clouds of fog. Beams of light continue to confound in Laser Frenzy, where kids try to navigate their way through the 18-foot course without breaking a beam. Elsewhere, the eponymous Jumpy Zone’s rainbow-colored inflatables allow kids aged 12 and younger to demonstrate how they’d moonwalk on the moon, as well as slide and climb in bouncy areas.

Revelers refuel with snacks such as pizza, hot dogs, and chips, and give their nimble fingers exercise in the arcade. Additionally, a toddler area gives tykes a safe place to practice walking or talking in pig latin.

Racket-wielding instructors at Schroeder Tennis Center help elevate players' tennis acumen with clinics and leagues for athletes of all ages and experience levels. Children's classes acclimate younger players to the game with smaller-sized racquets and courts, and this helps develop basic, size-appropriate skills at an earlier age. Adult classes range from beginner basic courses to high-level clinics, which teach players to smash tennis balls and small planets into orbit. The facilities include climate-controlled indoor courts—five in the summer and seven in the winter—as well as six outdoor courts.

Sequestered from the fitness studio, cardio room, and kid center at St. Julian's Fitness, a quiet room plays host to massage therapy. Here, a duo of licensed massage therapists—Bethany Kovach and Ryan Debelak—improves muscle health with soothing hand movements. Both Bethany and Ryan possess the know-how to induce relaxation with gentle Swedish strokes, relieve chronic pain with firm deep-tissue kneads, and target areas of tension with a sports massage. However, Bethany alone practices Thai-yoga massage, which is performed on the floor without lotion, oil, or ranch dressing. Massage therapy is available without a gym membership, and guests are welcome to enjoy a 15-minute Jacuzzi session prior to each appointment.
