  • Dionysus Dash
    It's a little known fact that in addition to drinking wine, Dionysus loved to run. Especially when someone would give him a prize afterward. The Dionysus Dash fuses all of of these passions into a 5-kilometer route that weaves through scenic vineyards. Run, jog, or walk?participants can take whatever pace they prefer, and costumes (togas and Greek head pieces) are encouraged. Race organizers keep runners hydrated and hand out prizes to the best male and female competitors, while wine tastings and food vendors add to the festivities.

  • Just Cruzin' Productions
    As the name suggests, Just Cruzin Productions specializes in events with a lot of horsepower. Guests browse more than 1,000 hot rods and classic cars at The Classic at Pismo Beach, an annual show that has been drawing droves of auto enthusiasts to central California for almost three decades. Its expertly maintained autos on display are in mint condition?they're judged based on areas from their interiors to their engine compartments, as well as on the owner's overall attention to detail, making it hard to win just by taping cardboard cutouts of a Corvette to a wagon. But the company also produces other major open-air shindigs, such as The Wagon Wheel Country Music Festival. What unites its large portfolio of events is a passion for charitable giving. Through the Just Cruzin? Life Foundation, it's directed millions of dollars in event proceeds to organizations including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Ronald McDonald House, and the Jerry L. Pettis Loma Linda Veterans Hospital.

  • Tri-California Events
    If you ask the team at Tri-California Events what a triathlon is all about, you might hear about swimming, biking and running, but what you?ll hear the most about is how fun they are. As each racing season emerges, the team gets to work running fun races from the mud-filled MORE Obstacle Course in the spring to Scott Tinley?s Triathlon in fall, replete with on-road and off-road options. One of their most popular events is the Wildflower Triathlon, now one of the largest triathlons in the world. During this packed event many athletes camp out for the weekend to ensure a memorable experience and to make s'mores as race fuel.

  • Wicked WIne Run - Santa Barbara
    It's a Run because of the 5K track, a Wine Run because of the celebratory toast at the end, and a Wicked Wine Run because those two ingredients are a recipe for mischief. Participants are encouraged to get in touch with their inner goof, dress up in wacky costumes, and run in teams with the funniest themes they can think of.

  • American Hot Shots Extreme Run
    The American Hot Shots Extreme Run puts the average 5K to shame. Held on a 10,000 acre ranch, the course stretches more than 10 miles, and it challenges racers with 24 obstacles sprinkled across muddy terrain. Luckily, conquering the rope climbs, monkey bars, and other challenges brings ample rewards. Beyond the finish line waits a celebration complete with food vendors, wine, and beer from two of California's best breweries. Live bands also play to set the mood and help drum up support for a good cause. All profits from the event go to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and Wildland Firefighter Foundation, organizations that benefit the families of firefighters killed or injured while serving.

  • Color Me Rad
    Color Me Rad is back and better than ever with its 2015 tour, staging 5K races that transform runners into mobile rainbows by launching cheerful barrages of colored cornstarch and a whole new GEL color. Each color station along the racetrack flings a new 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 and a pair of RAD knee-high socks, sponsor gifts, and a race bib. Also, new for 2015, all runners will receive access to free professional digital photo downloads. Though they don't receive a gift packet, runners who are 7 years old and younger can run for free.
