When the sun descends past the horizon, participants will strap on their headlamps and embark on a 5K run under a glowing moon. The race trail follows the scenic, coastal terrain, and all participants receive a headlamp. Post-race, runners enjoy live music, carnival rides, Santa photo booth, and giveaways while partaking in food and drinks. The friendly competition continues at the after-party, where organizers bestow awards to runners with the best costumes.

When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. MetaBody created a real-life version of that ticket with the MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.

With new races popping up weekly in cities around the world, the organizers of the Spartan Race are almost as busy as their race's runners. Almost. The grueling races range from the Spartan Sprint, which is a 5K with more than 15 obstacles, to the Ultra Beast, which is a marathon with more than 50 obstacles. Depending on the race, the obstacles may include mud pits, pugil sticks, or fire. To unite the sprawling operation, Spartan Race tracks racers' point totals on its online-standings page.

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.

Glow Hawaii Glow is not about how fast you run—it's about how brightly you shine. The 5K race decks out participants in glowing accessories, and encourages them to wear white clothing so that the course's black-lights have a dazzling effect. At every kilometer of the race, a different surprise or obstacle illuminates runners. And, because these areas are "party zones", participants can jog, walk, or dance along on their surfboard, so long as they reflect the celebratory spirit of the event. After the race, an after-party keeps the glow going with music and luminous decorations.
