After spending three years rehabbing spines as a chiropractor, Jason Montroy began gravitating toward a new way of helping people—as a certified fitness trainer. He now puts his wellness know-how to use by customizing training programs that help clients lose weight and improve their overall fitness. He also leads boot camps that make use of unconventional resistance props, such as tires, battle ropes, and King Arthur's stone-planted sword.

Quick—what are the colors of a rainbow? If you hesitated in answering that question, participating in an all-ages Gnarly Neon 5K could provide you with a wearable cheat sheet. During the race, spectators armed with nontoxic, washable powder make it rain blue, pink, yellow, green, and orange on runners as a live DJ pumps out high-energy beats. Each Gnarly Neon race raises money for charities like Children's Miracle Network and Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Each fall, the typically serene landscape transforms into a 5K course of terror as lurching/walking/sprinting dead try to make buffets of the running living in the pulse-pounding Zombie Frenzy race. But unlike zombie runs that force participants to just play victim, the Zombie Frenzy provides a fresh role-playing twist that lets runners see through the eyes of both the living and the undead, just like Bub, an adorable sentient zombie. With help from a team of professional makeup artists, partakers start the race as ghoulish chaser zombies and savor the thrill of stalking the living for their "brains," which come in the form of belt-mounted "life" flags. After hunting their prey across containment zones, the tables turn as players shed their makeup and rigor mortis to return to the race as runners. Those who finish fastest and with their flags intact can earn prizes. But everyone who participates gets a T-shirt, swag bag, custom silicon bracelets, and snacks and drinks after they've crossed the finish line.

Color Me Rad stages 5K races that transform runners into mobile rainbows by launching cheerful barrages of colored cornstarch. Each color station along the racetrack flings a new, nontoxic pigment at passersby, who wear white shirts to enhance the chromatic onslaught's costuming effects. Brilliant neon-blue, green, purple, and yellow clouds dapple participants along the way, and the race concludes with a prismatic finish-line finale as sprinters chuck colors at each other in celebration. The race's noncompetitive credo shifts the emphasis from speed to silliness, and a portion of its proceeds go to local charities.

Upon registration, each runner collects a Color Me Rad T-shirt, sunglasses, sponsor gifts, and a race bib. Though they don't receive a gift packet, runners younger than 8 years old can sprint for free, provided they have a waiver signed by a guardian and won't give in to demands for gold from confused leprechauns.
