  • Tough Mudder
    Climbing walls, ice baths, pools of mud, electric shocks?a Tough Mudder isn't your average event. Each 10- to 12-mile course contains 20 adrenaline-pumping obstacles designed to test participants' strength and endurance, just like most local DMV lines. Runners clamber on top of each other to scale the slick, sloping wall of Pyramid Scheme or squeal with shock as they plunge into the Arctic Enema, a plastic-lined dumpster filled with thousands of pounds of ice. They even endure shocks from a forest of live wires known as Electroshock Therapy. But it's all worth it for the glass of beer at the end, plus the sense of camaraderie that develops among teammates. Many of those teammates go on to join the Mudder Legion, an organization for those who have participated in the event more than once. Tough Mudder also raises funds for the Wounded Warrior Project, which helps injured veterans transition to civilian life.

  • Superhero Scramble
    During the Superhero Scramble, racers of all fitness levels tear across arduous terrain littered with body- and mind-challenging obstacles. Participants must wade through mud and, to reach the finish line, persevere through a barrage of Super Slime generously donated by retired Ghostbusters. Upon completing the race, athletes ride their endorphin high into a party stocked with ice-cold beer. There, they can mingle with other contestants, sway to live music, and see awards doled out to the fastest runners in each age bracket. Male and female Scramble Gamble contestants compete for prizes that can cover the cost of replacing the engines in their sneakers. The benefits of the race extend beyond the Gamble winners, too?the organizers donate a portion of the proceeds to charity.

  • Catalyst Sports
    Skiing. Snowboarding. Canoeing. Rock climbing. Horseback riding. To someone with a physical disability, activities like these might seem impossible. Yet Eric Gray, founder of Catalyst Sports, has taught disabled individuals how to perform each one?plus a few others. At Catalyst, Eric and his team empower people to not only overcome physical disabilities, but also to thrive with them. The organization provides unique recreational opportunities to individuals of all ages and ability levels, including adaptive rock climbing programs. In fact, Catalyst has grown into the largest such adaptive climbing program in the country. It has done so, in large part, by hosting frequent events and fundraisers, which are far better ways to raise money than playing the same Roman numerals in the lottery every week.

  • Stone Summit
    With their jagged ridges, multicolored faces, and thousands of holds affixed seemingly at random, the rock walls at Stone Summit look like cubist installations large enough to fill a small warehouse. Follow any series of holds up to the top of these expressionist monuments, though, and scores of individual routes emerge, offering challenges for everyone from entry-level beginners to the most seasoned scaler. Climbers can seek out the tops of routes as high as 60 feet off the facility floor, and bouldering enthusiasts have an entire room filled with near-horizontal overhangs and brain-teasing bouldering problems perfect for studying for the rock-climbing portion of the SAT. The facility complements its climbing focus with a range of non-climbing exercise opportunities, including treadmills, weight machines, and yoga classes.
