Outside of a marathon, the best way to test a person's endurance is to see how long they can listen to a radio play-by-play of a marathon. Take on a real challenge with today's Groupon: for $17, you get one entry to the LA Prostate Cancer 5K on Sunday, November 6 on the University of Southern California campus (a $35 value). Registration begins at 6:30 a.m., and the 5K begins at 8:30 a.m.

The second annual LA Prostate Cancer 5K enlists pavement pounders to help raise money for new therapies and better screening tools in the attempt to show prostate cancer who’s boss. Hosted by the USC Institute of Urology, the 5K opens its campus-side route to all levels of runners, walkers and electric boogalooers, divvying up participants into age-specific categories. Dr. Inderbir Gill kicks off the spirited event with a welcoming speech, and recognition of survivors, pre-run warm-ups and the National Anthem dispense the daily recommended dose of motivation. Beginning at the Tommy Trojan statue–unmistakable for his bronze sword and noble stance—marathoners whiz through University Park and the grounds of Exposition Park. Following the race, an award ceremony recognizes top performers and invites every participant to bask in the synchronized huffs and puffs of accomplishment.

Accompanying the 5K, a health expo exhibits all manner of information about the latest prostate cancer treatments and research. Advanced surgical systems, including the da Vinci robot, will be on display while live entertainment, free giveaways, and zombie Walt Disney animate the already festive atmosphere.
