For the Pirate Plunder Adventure Race, athletes don their best pirate hats and bandanas, and prepare to take on an ocean—of mud. The run's 5K course is studded with 16 obstacles, including a 100-foot mud pit. Racers also scale walls and clamber over mountains of tires, rather than just riding the nearest parrot over them. In the end, athletes all reach the treasure they sought: the finish line and the post-race party complete with food and live music that comes after it.
