Before joining the team at Hair by Charles & Co., stylist Angela Rasco honed her skills as a student in the invitation-only honors program at the Paul Mitchell School.

Participants in Jam Active's Tap 'N' Run 4k—which takes place throughout the country—may find that their biggest challenge is not completing the race's approximately 2.5-mile stretch, but keeping a straight face along the way. Throughout the run, racers sip samples of beer at chug stations while doing their best to not spill on their costumes in an effort to win awards such as We Wear Short Shorts or Hot Mess. At the finish line, team members raise a full beer to toast their real or pretend victory, collect a T-shirt, and scoop up a finisher's medal that can double as a bottle opener and a way to impress prospective employers.
Running on a treadmill may be a good way to stay in shape, but it doesn't showcase a city's finer points. Jam Active specializes in curating fun, competitive events across cities in the US, Canada, and Europe. The active-lifestyle brand carves exciting race paths past local landmarks and points of interest, often incorporating music and entertainment to keep participants in the zone. Jam Active hosts myriad races, including half-marathons, duathlons, and triathlons.
Many marathons end with a celebratory beer, but the organizers of the Tap 'N' Run 4K don't see why participants should have to wait that long. At their races, runners hit the starting line swigging 5 ounces of beer and pass multiple chugging stations before crossing the finish line, where another round awaits them. Though one runner will ultimately cross the finish line first, this race is more about how you get there. Runners are encouraged to don zany costumes, competing for prestigious titles such as Best 'Stache?with real and fake categories?Most Unique Team Concept, and Shortest Shorts. They also award one courageous runner with the greatest honor of all?Best Belcher for the loudest and longest burp, with previous record holders including Margaret Thatcher.
Along 1,000 feet of an indoor raceway, up to eight Sodi competition karts snake around bends and blaze through straightaways at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. Instead of creating a typical tiny, circular path, the designers of Bluegrass Indoor Karting are proud to present a track that celebrates speed and skill. Their karts protect drivers from bumps and rolls with a three-point safety harness, bumper system, and no diving policy. They also design karts specifically for kids, which share the same specs as the adult karts but only max out at a speed of 25 miles per hour. From the 2,000-square-foot viewing area, guests can watch their friends chase down checkered flags, and the facility's 5,000 square feet of conference rooms accommodate youth birthdays and corporate events.
