As an offshoot of Sierra Trading Post, Derailed.com holds fast to the same business model as its parent company: bargaining with top brands to procure overstocks at heavily discounted prices. But like a youngest sibling taking up juggling cats, it strives to differentiate itself from its older counterparts. It stands out with a youthful vibe thanks to skate, surf, and SUP apparel and the staff's laid-back attitude. They'll happily answer questions and make recommendations on their throngs of camping gear, running shoes, collegiate attire, and bicycle accessories from brands including Hurely, Billabong, and Teva. Though their merchandise boasts an average discount of 48% off the retail value, shoppers can save even more—customers receive a $10 coupon when they sign up for emails, and clients of the Give & Go Referral program get a $20 egiftcard when the friend they referred uses their own $10 email coupon.
An authorized concessionaire of the National Park Service in Dinosaur National Monument, Adrift Adventures takes rafters of all skill levels into fast-paced waters on multinight excursions in the wilderness. Guides lead one- to five-day trips into the tranquil and roaring waterways of the Yampa, Green, and other rivers, floating in the shadow of canyons sculpted by erosion over millions of years. As rafts round each aquatic bend and rocky façade, guides point out sights such as Native American rock art and local wildlife. When appropriate, the expert crew can safely guide rafters through Class III and higher rapids, adding adrenaline to otherwise scenic and educational voyages. During intervals on the area's scenic shorelines, guides also lead short hikes and help adventurers camp along the roadless wilderness.
Running with 1,500-pound bulls is inherently dangerous?the organizers of the stateside Running with the Bulls don't deny that. But that doesn't mean that the thrill of Pamplona has to come with the mistreatment of the animals, which is why participants who hit, slap, harass, or otherwise impede the progress of the bulls will be removed from the venue. With those distractions aside, spectators can focus on the essence of the run: watching 12 horn-swinging bulls dash through a quarter-mile course on the heels of runners who must have heard that this event was called Running with the Lambs. But the event gives the community more than elevated heart rates, as each three-day spectacle begins with a charity run that benefits Operation Hawkeye, an organization that supports the families of Special Operations forces who've been killed in combat.
The Deuce duathlon ignites participants' competitive spirit throughout a 16-mile track carved into rugged terrains. Competitors race to the finish line on foot and on mountain bike, testing their endurance as they strive to outrun the competition and overly enthusiastic water boys. Between two 5K runs, participants bestride mountain bikes to conquer the challenging 10-mile course. This leg of the race pushes participants to their limits as they reach a maximum elevation of 5,347 feet, peddling through narrow single tracks, sharp corners, and grueling climbs.
After competitors sprint across the finish line, staffers dole out awards for men and women in a variety of categories. Instead of dividing racers up by age—the only age categories are "under 18" and "18 and older"—The Deuce tests all relay teams and single racers equally on their speed and agility.
