Outside of a 5K race, the best way to test people's endurance is to see how long they can listen to a radio play-by-play of a 5K race. Take on a real challenge with this Groupon.
$15 for Race Registration (Up to $30 Value)
The 5K race begins at 7 p.m. on Friday, August 31, at Soldiers' Memorial Military Museum. Participants can run or walk. Registration includes a participant T-shirt and admission to the post-race party, with access to the athletes-only fruit, sports-drink, and beer tent, and food discounts for the Sauce Magazine food trucks.
Commitment Day 5K Run
On 10 a.m. on the first day of 2013, City Park's Great Lawn will fill with people ready to start the year off not with a resolution, but a commitment—a commitment to a healthy lifestyle. They'll run, walk, or jay-walk through the park and Marconi Drive on the flat, fast course, which it circles back to the Great Lawn where they started. After the race, runners can stick around for a post-race party to celebrate a successful first morning of the New Year.
In more than 30 cities across the nation, other runners will be participating in similar events as part of a movement that aims to stymie the rising rates of obesity and inaction in the United States.
