At the Cincy Nation Mud Run, it’s all about the 513. Racers spend a Saturday bounding through an obstacle-packed course funded by local sponsors and benefiting local charities. The 2.11-mile obstacle course boasts military-style challenges such as cargo nets, log jumps, monkey bars, and mud crawls. The Cincy-centric run also offers parkour-inspired obstacles including two-angled walls, mud trenches, and parallel bars. After crossing the finish line, racers can revel at an after-party that features local vendors, and intrepid diggers can try to pull keys out of a mud pit to win iPods, iPads, and vintage Rolodexes. Ultimately, the race organizers aim to encourage healthy competition amongst the teams, which can be fielded by rival high schools, companies, or lemonade stands.
Anytime Fitness, which boasts 1,689 clubs in North America, makes it easier for average folks to etch out time for exercise by doing one simple thing: staying open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. As fitness-seekers challenge themselves on cardio and strength machines and hoist free weights in clean, well-stocked facilities, security monitoring ensures they’re safe and producing enough sweat to meet official government standards. Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness’s staff of personal trainers, while tracking their fitness progress and meals in the innovative Anytime Health system. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms or bop into one of the tanning booths.
Cincinnati Skydiving gives novice jumpers a taste of the open sky via tandem diving. Participants take flight while attached to an instructor and enjoy a 60-second free fall before the parachute opens and they float gently to the ground, taking in the landscape. Cincinnati Skydiving also offers advanced jumpers the chance to take solo leaps; after a four- to six-hour training course, they take to the skies with two accelerated free-fall masters who oversee the plunge.
Though mac 'n' cheese egg rolls, ranch-fried green beans, and fried-to-order cinnamon donuts might not sound like typical menu items at a sports bar, at Ole Friends Tavern, the chefs take an interesting spin on standard fare. The family-friendly pub also features outdoor seating, happy-hour specials, and Saturday-night DJs.

Skydive Warren County is a labor of love for the Stewart family with roots as far back as 1945, when the patriarch purchased 40 acres of land and lived in a house attached to a hangar at Waynesville Airport. Such proximity caused the Stewarts to grow up with an appreciation for aviation that eventually brought them to skydiving. Since 1969, the business has been imbued with their enthusiasm, teaching novices and experts alike how to hone their skills in airborne sports with the help of licensed professionals.
