  • 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.

  • Wonder of Dinosaurs
    It seems impossible enough to present the public with just one prehistoric beast. Wonder of Dinosaurs, however, is home to more than 100 museum-quality dinosaurs. The traveling exhibition displays a legion of realistic dinosaur replicas and robots that guests can explore at their leisure on self-guided tours. The experience is just as educational as it is enthralling, with scientific facts posted next to each dinosaur that describe its size and lifestyle. Visitors also engage in activities. These include leaping on bouncy dinosaur inflatables, playing rounds of miniature golf, and panning for gemstones and fossils in a sluice. During dinosaur rides, guests can even sit atop a robotic dinosaur.

  • Neon Dash
    As the sun sets and darkness blankets the city, runners, joggers, and walkers of all ages run, jog, or walk through the Neon Dash, a luminescent jaunt that benefits a chosen charity partner. To the soundtrack of adrenaline-boosting tunes, participants clad in white T-shirts make their way through a glowing foam and bubble zone and four glow zones, each filled with volunteers armed with a different color of intense UV neon. Once across the finish line, they'll attend the After Glow Party, which bathes them in the otherworldly illumination of black lights and the accompanying joy of wearing a self-satisfied smile as they play games and enjoy entertainment for the rest of the night.

  • Splash Dash 5K
    Nobody leaves the Splash Dash 5K dry. A series of splash stations equipped with massive showers, shallow pools, and careening water balloons litter the 3.1-mile course, waiting to soak every participant before they cross the finish line. Down one straightaway, runners may confront a gang of volunteers ready to blast them with water guns, only to turn a corner and face the deluge of a fire hose. After braving the watery gauntlet, runners of all ages celebrate their victories at the Splash Dash Bash after party, where prizes are awarded for the best costumes and finish times as runners dance to music and attempt to dry off by matching the speed of their washer's spin cycle.

  • Rock N Glow 5K, 2013 by Hi5F
    Flashes of neon light up the night during the Rock N Glow 5K, a glow-in-the-dark race by Hi5F, which donates a portion of the proceeds to Coconino Humane Association. As darkness descends on the host city, racers get into the glowing spirit by strapping on vibrant clothing, oversized sunglasses, wigs, and layers of glow-in-the-dark swag. Once everyone is geared up, the noncompetitive race begins, snaking through 3.1 miles of neon-soaked path soundtracked by energetic, heart-pumping music. And once everyone is across the finish line, racers and supporters cap off the night with a glowing after party complete with live DJs, dancing, food, and a cash bar.

  • BierBuzz Masquerade 2013
    On October 26, Halloween monsters rise from the undead to invade Luna Supper Club. Not for blood or revenge, but instead for craft beer. At the BierBuzz Masquerade Beer Fest, costumed guests flood the two-story nightclub, letting unlimited sips of beer filter through their hockey masks. 15 local breweries tap kegs for the masses, including Left Coast Brewing, Ironfire Brewing Company, and Ritual Brewing Co. Live bands and DJs set the proceedings to a rhythmic thump, including a reggae set by MightyMellowMassive. Guests enjoy the club's modern stylings as they frolic, including lounge rooms awash in circling light beams and a long outdoor patio.
