LEGO sets always come with instructions for constructing everything from town halls to entire kingdoms. For the My Own Creation competition at Vancouver Lego Games, however, the instructions must come from within. At the annual event, competitors showcase their original designs, which vie for top-three prizes and the equally coveted Viewer's Choice Award.

Geared toward kids and adults alike, Vancouver Lego Games isn't just a place to show off pre-made pieces. During the Ready, Set, Build! competition, participants respond to a theme with their own LEGO model in just one hour, completely ignoring the normal procedure of applying for a LEGO zoning permit. Besides crowning competition winners, Vancouver Lego Games awards the biggest prize—the event's proceeds—to a different charity every year.

The bright-yellow raft slams head-on into the rapid, sending a torrential downpour over the drenched but laughing rafters as they climb the foaming waves. Such high-adrenaline moments are hardly a rarity on Canadian Outback Adventures & Events? whitewater-rafting trips, a meticulously planned adventure that unfolds in the midst of British Columbia's most scenic locales. It all began in 1992, when the Corbett brothers James and Steve founded Canadian Outback Adventures & Events, and transitioned from multi-day, expedition-style soft adventures to one and two day adventures. Today, the company provides exciting team-building and employee training opportunities throughout North America, as well as awe-inspiring scenic rafting adventures throughout BC.

Canadian Outback Adventures & Events is built upon a foundation of social responsibility and the belief that learning, discovering, and laughing brings people together. Their Canadian Outback Cares initiative has contributed funds toward causes such as Muscular Dystrophy Canada, Junior Achievement of BC, and the Nature Trust of British Columbia.

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.

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.
