Presented in part by Dan Clark, also known as Nitro, of American Gladiator fame, the Gladiator Rock'n Run 6K pairs an obstacle-heavy running course with post-race entertainment, including beer, music, and food. Six kilometers’ worth of collective scampering awaits participants as muscle-testing obstacles impede progress to the finish line. Those prepared to race must dance through tires, army-crawl through mud, and clamber up rope ladders to avoid barrels thrown by giant apes. The roar of spectators rings throughout the course as bystanders cheer on runners to inspire strong finishes. Gladiator Rock'n Run proceeds go toward a good cause, helping to raise money for TACA (Talk About Curing Autism), an organization that provides education, support, and information to aid parents in helping their children diagnosed with autism.
The big sky above The Ranch at Bandy Canyon has watched over nearly 150 years of homesteading history, stretching back to John D. Bandy, who staked his claim in 1870. Having undergone a multimillion-dollar restoration, the main lodge boasts two kitchens equipped with antique stoves, three patios warmed by open-air fireplaces, and rustic ceiling beams repurposed from the original San Diego pier. Its terraced landscape often hosts wedding ceremonies as well. Further along, the Ranch sprawls across 144 trail-laced acres, providing a well-maintained stomping ground for human, horse, and tumbleweed alike. Country cottages dot the land as well, granting visitors a spot to lay their hats, and a pool helps wash off the lather of a day on the trails.
At FunBelievable Play, British owners Lynne and Adriana introduce the San Diego area to “British-style” indoor play with playground equipment imported from the United Kingdom. Meeting all playground safety regulations, the 6,000-square-foot facility helps children use their imaginations while developing their physical and mental capabilities, and climbing structures and interactive games encourage social skills that come in handy when imaginary friends go off to college. A colorful three-level play structure hosts fun amenities such as tube slides, climbing walls, tiki-figure punching bags, and a ball shower, whereas the sports arena gives future athletes the chance to kick goals and shoot baskets. Wobbly walkers and toddlers enjoy more age-appropriate play in their own space, which scales down big-kid fun into an area littered with soft toys, a mini ball pit, and mini slides.
Parents can sip coffee in a lounge area and rest easy knowing their children are playing on equipment that's sanitized and inspected daily.
