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 $12, you get entry to the New Balance Girls on the Run 5K race benefitting Girls on the Run of Topeka, presented by the YWCA of Topeka on Saturday December 3 (up to a $30 value).

Girls on the Run promotes self-esteem and healthy living for young ladies by combining education and running programs. The New Balance Girls on the Run 5K benefit race flings open the starting gates to runners of all ages, drawing more than 150 kids and adults to last year’s event. Ceremonies begin Friday, December 2 as participants begin trickling in to collect race packets from Garry Gribbles Running Sports from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Packet pickup is also available on race day starting at 8 a.m. Each preregistered pavement stomper gets a Girls on the Run T-shirt, and a course map detailing routes and marking the locations of water stations where runners can hydrate or stage reenactments of the Boston Tea Party.

On race day, Goody Happy Hair Salon will be on hand to administer hair coloring and prerace tattooing to spectators viewing from lawn chairs suspended by balloons. The race commences at 9 a.m. with a rolling start, and a police escort ensures that runners, joggers, and walkers can safely traverse streets and sidewalks.
