Founded by Lisa Druxman after the birth of her son, Stroller Strides was Lisa's answer to an eternal maternal question: How do I squeeze fitness into a day packed with childcare? The program's three fitness programs provide solutions, striving to help moms to maintain and build fitness from pregnancy onward. All participants at Stroller Strides can join the complimentary Plum Moms Club for more activities with their child, moms' nights out, and play dates for little ones, giving their invisible friends a welcome time to nap. The program helps to build moms' health and the bond with their children at more than 1,200 locations in the United States, as well as centers in Japan and Puerto Rico.

Typically, baseballs fly out of AT&T Park to splash into the water. This Thanksgiving, it will be runners who dart from a starting line outside the stadium to trot along the waterfront. From there, these racers—some dressed as turkeys, sleeping uncles, or other iconic Thanksgiving images—wind into the SoMa district before bending into the heart of the city and finishing at City Hall.
Proceeds from the race benefit the San Francisco and Marin Food Bank, an organization dedicated to ending hunger in the community. The race organizers have completely committed to the giving nature of Thanksgiving, not just with the race's date and charitable cause but also with its route. The course is designed to showcase the work being done to help those experiencing hunger, as well as "create a visual representation of the real care being delivered by the community," as the race site states.
Each year, Mud Factor plows into towns across the country towing along a fun, yet challenging 5K course full of obstacles and mud to trudge through. Costumes are encouraged for runners who like to rock their own style.
It's a little known fact that in addition to drinking wine, Dionysus loved to run. Especially when someone would give him a prize afterwards. The Dionysus Dash fuses all of of these passions into a five-kilometer route that weaves through the scenic vineyards of Hess Winery and Christian Brothers Vineyard. 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.
