In January 2013, sisters Angie and Ashley Webb set out on a long run. Their destination? The moon. True, they didn't do it all at once. And they had a lot of help—after initially setting a 1,000-mile goal, they found that friends, family, and runners from around the world wanted to get in on the action. The group
hit a new cumulative goal of reaching 238,855 miles—the distance between earth and the moon.
Today, people from more than 40 countries call themselves Moon Joggers. Each of them contributes to the organization's collective goal by jogging, running, or walking, then logging their miles in the online database. Back in 2013, the group made it to the moon by May 23, but the journey didn't end there. They're
expanding their goal
every year, currently aiming for Venus in 2014. As team members contribute at their own pace, they also hit checkpoints along the way and climb in the rankings, earning the right to be called Captain while remaining entirely unqualified to run a starship.
The Glo Run’s 5K fun run event always takes place at night, but it doesn’t seem like it. The course is lined with black lights and lasers, and runners sport glow-in-the-dark gear from t-shirts to sunglasses. On-course DJs add to the festivities, blasting tunes as the untimed participants run, walk, or dance to the finish line. Even more DJs await them there at the glow-in-the-dark after party, which lights up the night better than a raccoon that's swallowed a flashlight.

Tac Force Challenge tests the strength of racers by putting them through the rigors of an adventure 5K obstacle course designed by power lifters, martial-arts experts, and special-operations professionals. The muddy, muscle-straining course houses 31 obstacles, such as rope walls, river dashes, unbalanced beams, log trips, and tunnels that force runners to use all their strength and jet-pack fuel to reach the finish line. Participants begin their first race ranked as a Private and advance closer to General as they complete each run. This progress is saved in the Tac Force database, which catalogs completion dates so that the government knows whom to call in the event of a sweaty-bicep shortage.
Wear white, and be prepared for that shirt to never look the same. That's just about the only rule of the Color Blaze 5K, a technicolor event that's a little different than the standard run. For one, contestants don't have to run at all—in fact, they can mosey, lollygag, skip, crawl, jog, and backflip their way along the course. Rather than determining the best time, the non-competitive race is about the experience itself. At each successive mile, Blaze Zones powder participants in biodegradable—and even edible—colors, creating an army of fleet-footed Jackson Pollocks. Proceeds from the event benefit local charities, and an afterparty welcomes the newly prismatic to dance the day away in their freshly illustrated get-ups.
