Sure, there's mud. Like many other 5ks across the country, the Lion's Chase will get you dirty. But its creators take the most pride in the race's obstacles. From a 20-foot shear rock wall to a 75-foot cable walk over a pond, the trek through 250 acres of trails, creeks, and waterfalls is packed with challenges.

No men, no makeup, no mirrors. It's a philosophy that’s helped members of the Curves community since 1992. Part fitness center, part community center, Curves is a women’s only club that takes a streamlined approach to health, fitness, and weight loss. Curves has teamed up with health and fitness coach Jillian Michaels to develop full-body, 30-minute workouts that kick-start weight loss, combining strength training, cardio, and stretching into sessions that torch fat, build strength, boost intensity, and prevent plateaus. These workouts are enhanced further by the Curves Complete Program, available for an extra fee, which is rooted in Curves' method for effective weight loss in that it supplements efforts at the gym with personalized meal plans and weekly one-on-one meetings with a certified Curves coach.
