  • Great Urban Race
    In addition to the sense of perseverance and accomplishment that comes with finishing a 5K, the organizers of the Bacon Chase have added another incentive: bacon. During their two races?the 5K Piggy Pilgrimage, which is a traditional 5K, and the 0.05K Blitz to Bacon, which is a 164-foot sprint?runners can munch on unlimited bacon bits before feasting on unlimited amounts of bacon at the finish line. Runners 21 and older can wash down the savory strips of bacon with a bloody mary, and all runners get a Bacon Chase T-shirt and a signature bacon-scented bib. The festival opens at 8 a.m. and features many bacon-themed activities, plus music. The festive day serves a greater purpose, too. Attendees will be able to register to become a St. Jude Hero, raise money for St. Jude Children?s Research Hospital, or both.

  • Tacos and Beer 5K
    Tacos, beer, and running. While not exactly a sacred triumvirate, these are all the ingredients necessary for a wildly festive Cinco de Mayo weekend, thanks to the aptly named Tacos & Beer 5k. Held in El Dorado East Regional Park in Long Beach, the annual event celebrates Mexico's holiday with a festival of food and fitness. It all starts with the 5K, though that's only the tip of the proverbial cactus. Runners completing the course are rewarded with two tacos and a beer?not to mention a day packed with themed activities. Aside from the live music and ever-present cheering squads, racers can participate in a costume contest, ride a mechanical bull, or bash open a pi?ata filled with replenishing protein powder.

  • YMCA of Greater Long Beach
    Founded in 1884, the YMCA of Greater Long Beach has been around longer than there's been a city of Long Beach. The community center—one of the oldest and largest of its kind—is equipped to handle more than 30,000 people or 18,000 gorillas annually. Besides its six community branches, 25 after-school sites, and five early childcare programs, the YMCA maintains a 230-acre camp area in the Big Bear area. In town, toddlers can attend childcare programs; kids can take martial arts and basketball lessons; teens can develop their leadership skills; adults can sign up for sports classes of their own; and the whole family can enjoy the pool.

  • Active Runs
    Festivities, live music, and prizes intertwine with fulfilling 5K trots at events organized by Active Runs. For more than 20 years, Active Runs has set out to create events that appeal not only to avid runners but to casual participants interested in trying their first run. Although the courses themselves would be reason enough to participate, the organizers also collaborate with race directors to create themed runs, such as Green Sneakers and Day of the Dead, that feature face painting, foot venders, and art festivals?as well as T-shirts and drinks for guests. And since the money raised benefits charities, runners have an even worthier reason to strap on their shoes and don their most aerodynamic running sombrero. Crossing the finish line first isn't the only way to win, though. Competitions for traditional costumes, biggest teams, and most creative team name also keep things interesting, doling out prizes to winners of each category.
