  • Color Me Rad
    Color Me Rad is back and better than ever with its 2015 tour, staging 5K races that transform runners into mobile rainbows by launching cheerful barrages of colored cornstarch and a whole new GEL color. Each color station along the racetrack flings a new pigment at passersby, who wear white shirts to enhance the chromatic onslaught's costuming effects. Brilliant neon-blue, green, purple, and yellow clouds dapple participants along the way, and the race concludes with a prismatic finish-line finale as sprinters chuck colors at each other in celebration. The race's noncompetitive credo shifts the emphasis from speed to silliness, and a portion of its proceeds go to local charities. Upon registration, each runner collects a Color Me Rad T-shirt and a pair of RAD knee-high socks, sponsor gifts, and a race bib. Also, new for 2015, all runners will receive access to free professional digital photo downloads. Though they don't receive a gift packet, runners who are 7 years old and younger can run for free.

  • Graffiti Run
    The creators of The Colorful 5K use the term ?run? very loosely. Less of a race, and more a celebration of the human spirit, the Graffiti Run encourages participants to dash, dance, prance, skip, cartwheel, or walk the course as they douse each other in vibrant hues that span the full spectrum. Each run also donates a portion of proceeds to a local charity, which range from Special Olympics affiliates and scholarship funds to city cleanup and beautification projects.

  • NOLA Motorsports Park
    All manner of motorized vehicles race down twists and turns at NOLA Motorsports Park’s 600-acre racing facility. Exotic racecars roar along an international-standard racetrack, whereas professional go-karts harness their speed on a smaller scale. Motorcycles join their four-wheeled cousins during regular bike races, as spectators look on jealously, yearning for the day when humans finally evolve wheels of their own.

  • Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
    Much like the life of poet-turned-politician Joseph Addison, Team In Training's program has two sides. In addition to athletic training, participants receive full fundraising support, including sample and promotional materials and admittance to educational workshops. All money raised will support valuable research for the treatment and cure of leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, and myeloma.

  • Girls on the Run
    Girls on the Run cultivates an active, noncompetitive atmosphere for 8- to 13-year-olds, meeting twice a week in small teams of 8-20 girls teaching life skills through fun, engaging lessons that celebrate the joy of movement. Their programs help them develop confidence and a healthy body image through playing games and going for runs with each other. The 20-lesson curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork, and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large. At the end of each 10-week program, participants, their families, and neighborhood squirrels lace up their running shoes for the Girls on the Run 5K, a fun run that snakes through New Orleans City Park. Following the event, participants gather for a 5th Year Celebration.

  • Urban Dare National - USE FOR ALL DEALS
    The Urban Dare Adventure Race is a fast-paced competition that challenges two-person teams to decipher clues, navigate the city, and perform playful stunts. Combining the bustle of a track meet with the brain-taxing sleuth work of a luge competition, the race uses a dozen trivia-based clues to lead contestants to checkpoints all over their sprawling metropolis. Location hunters reach their checkpoints by whatever means necessary, be it hopping a bus downtown, flying madly through a network of secret ziplines, or scuba-diving in a fountain for bus fare. At the mini destinations, racers must use a camera to document their presence or, in some cases, get their passports stamped after completing challenges that may include a climbing wall or solving a riddle.
