  • Run or Dye
    Run or Dye is making race running a little more colorful, one major city at a time. This 5K is divided up into four separate courses of varying lengths, each designated by a separate color?which also reflects the color of safe, eco-friendly powered dye the participants get splashed with. At the end of the race, they'll cross into the aptly named Dye Zone?a polychromatic free-for-all where fluorescent color is thrown freely from all sides, allowing runners to splash their fellow runners or get colorful revenge on their friends, family members, and any cranky art-history teachers that happen to be walking by. Unlike some races that rank runners by time, Run or Dye only measures success in color and fun. While the safe-to-eat dyes should wash out of clothing, runners are encouraged to wear things they don't mind getting dirty, preferably in white, gray, or another neutral color to give the dyes maximum visibility.

  • northwoods adventure
    A bright yellow inflatable raft splashes down the rushing waters of the Menominee River, its helmet-clad passengers hooting victoriously as they speed past banks dappled with lush trees and rock faces. Catering to seasoned outdoor enthusiasts and beginner rafters alike, The rafting experts at Northwood's Adventures strive to grant their clients a chance to experience the splash-laden rush via excursions in northeastern Wisconsin and Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Their commitment to adventure is second only to the company's dedication to safety, exemplified in everything from its high-quality equipment to the team of meticulously selected guides. Trained as naturalists, medics, rescuers, and interpreters, each was considered for a place on staff only after successfully completing 600 hours of training and translating War and Peace into conversational moose. Tours continue throughout the year to scenic locales, which include a sunset cruise of Piers Gorge and an adrenaline-packed jaunt down the Sturgeon River.

  • Wildman Adventure Resort
    Between its outposts on the Peshtigo and Menominee Rivers, Wildman Adventure Resort plays host to an abundance of outdoor activities including paintball, rock climbing, ziplining, whitewater rafting tours, and golf. Before embarking on any one of these excursions, visitors can either pitch a tent or settle into one of the cabins, which include heat, electricity, and a communal bathroom, or deluxe cabins, which feature kitchens. At the Peshtigo River Outpost, cascading sounds from the rushing whitewater river soothes the spirits of travelers, who can catch fish, swim, or look for signs that local wildlife may be scheming to commandeer a river raft. The Menominee River Outpost, meanwhile, sits within Bombers Golf Course, a nine-hole course bound by riverbanks on three sides. Food is available for purchase onsite, and the onsite restaurant and bar is an ideal spot for guests to whittle customized utensils using leftover golf tees.

Today, Tarka has transformed his passion into a globe-spanning career?his Nepal- and Wisconsin- based company schedules adrenaline-pumping sojourns from rock climbing and safaris to whitewater rafting. Tarka's experienced guides have led hundreds of trips, and they each hold certifications in CPR, river rescue, and wilderness first aid to keep guests and nearby fish in safe hands.

  • Timberstone Golf Course
    Nestled in the natural beauty of the Upper Peninsula, Pine Mountain Resort encourages guests to relax in its full-service lodge before winding up on the sprawling golf course, which was ranked one of Golfweek's Best Courses You Can Play in 2011. The impeccably manicured TimberStone golf course is a five-star, par-72 course designed with emerald greenery, glassy waters, grassy hills, and gassy sand traps. A virtual tour shows a 360-degree panoramic view of every hole, dispelling unfounded rumors that the verdant forests and azure ponds are actually a series of Plexiglas cutouts. Zip around the course behind the wheel of the included cart, which carries bags and bodies like a pack mule and expects only a handful of wooden tees in its feedbag as a sign of thanks.
