  • Rev3 Adventure
    Established: 2010 Staff Size: 2?10 people Reservations/Appointments: Not offered Most popular offering: Adventure Races, MTB Races, and Trail Runs Pro Tip: Looking for adventure? REV3 Adventure can help you out. Good for Kids: Yes A portion of mountain biking, a dose of trail running, a pinch of trekking, and several gallons of watersports. This is Rev3 Adventure's race director's recipe for creating their adventure runs?and the training regimens to prepare for them?throughout the year. The races can be intense, as participants might switch between mountain biking and canoeing on any given day, but athletes can choose an adventure that fits their stamina levels, participating in events that last a few hours or a few days. For example, the annual Shenandoah Epic Adventure Race incorporates paddling, biking, trekking, and navigating, and competitors can opt to reach all the mandatory checkpoints in 13 hours or hit the additional optional checkpoints in 26 hours, the average number of hours a cat sleeps every day. Still, the race director says that the organizers and volunteers try to keep their events family-friendly. "We wanted to help families become active in the outdoors," says the race director, "and at the same time, create fun and exciting challenges that will push competitors to their personal limits in a fun and safe environment."

  • MetaBody Washington DC
    The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap for each company, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.

  • Blood & Guts Run
    Most obstacle courses are challenging enough without adding the undead to the mix. During the approximately 5K Blood & Guts Run, however, that's exactly what participants get. As they go sprinting through the Virginia woods, they'll have to traverse gore-drenched rock walls, spider webs, bloody beams, the wall of death, a tire gauntlet and more, while brain-hungry zombies slog after them. These creatures don't just moan and move, though?they take aim at runners with water guns filled with fake blood, creating a crimson-tinged scene reminiscent of classic horror movies or particularly gruesome ketchup fights. At the end of the course, runners will collect prizes, including custom-made t-shirts, for the most creative costumes in a few categories before dancing to DJ-spun tunes. The event also includes a beer garden, food trucks, photo booth, and zumba.

  • Mud Hero 5K
    Racers fleeing from zombies during the G.I. Dash UNDEAD 5K typically run with smiles on their faces instead of looks of horror. That's because the zombies aren't going to hurt them; they're encouraging them to complete the course for charity. Modeled after the G.I. Dash, the UNDEAD 5K puts a horror-movie spin on the classic 5K, forcing racers to worm their way under barbed wire and over walls. Once their mission is complete, racers receive a set of souvenir dog tags as a reminder of their accomplishment. Funds raised from the gruesome event go to benefit the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund, a charity that provides financial aid and quality of life solutions to marines, sailors, and their families.

  • Ice Cream Race
    The Ice Cream Race's all-ages 5K course celebrates sweetness by alternating jogs with sundae-themed obstacles such as a chocolate-syrup slide, banana peel pit and foam-like whipped cream. Individuals or families can compete, not just to finish the race, but also to take titles such as Wildest Costume or Muddiest Runner. Official sponsor, Scoops2U, provides free ice cream at the end for participants to devour or smear all over each others' ankles in celebration. A portion of the proceeds are donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
