Running in Dover

  • Run or Dye
    Run or Dye is making race running a little more colorful, one major city at a time. This 5K is divided up into four separate courses of varying lengths, each designated by a separate color?which also reflects the color of safe, eco-friendly powered dye the participants get splashed with. At the end of the race, they'll cross into the aptly named Dye Zone?a polychromatic free-for-all where fluorescent color is thrown freely from all sides, allowing runners to splash their fellow runners or get colorful revenge on their friends, family members, and any cranky art-history teachers that happen to be walking by. Unlike some races that rank runners by time, Run or Dye only measures success in color and fun. While the safe-to-eat dyes should wash out of clothing, runners are encouraged to wear things they don't mind getting dirty, preferably in white, gray, or another neutral color to give the dyes maximum visibility.

  • Bubblepalooza
    The first Urban Assault Race invaded the city of Austin more than a decade ago, back in 2003. Don't be fooled by the war-like name, though. As Austin residents were the first to find out, the bike obstacle race is a physical challenge on par with a bootcamp?but more than that, it's fun. Here are three reasons why. The race is a puzzle. There's no official route?instead, race checkpoints are scattered across the city, and teams must find the most efficient route between them. Winner are often cunning, and good at biking through hedges without leaving a hole. Bikers encounter wacky obstacles along the way. In the past, racers have undertaken the hybrid sports?bike jousting and bike limbo, for instance?when they weren't throwing themselves down inflatable slip 'n' slides. There's a backyard BBQ-style afterparty. Racers 21 and older can sip free beers at the fresh air festivities?and the free swag doesn't stop there. Every racer heads home with a limited-edition race t-shirt to commemorate the event.

  • Wipeout Run
    From the producers of the hit TV show Wipeout, WIPEOUTRUN lets participants step into the soaking, sudsy running shoes of a game-show contestant. At locations across North America, runners dash through an adventure peppered with oversized obstacles inspired by the program's original and official course, including slides slicked with soap suds, padded wrecking balls, and steep inflated slides. Once runners conquer the gauntlet of swings and climbing walls, they zoom to the finish line down a four-story water slide. Then, it's time to celebrate with friends at an all-day festival filled with food, refreshments, and souvenir booths. See photos of past events on their Instagram account here and video on their Youtube account here.

  • Race Roll Dye
    This Race Roll Dye race is dog-friendly, and offers DIY dye stations for owners and pooches for an additional fee. Race obstacles are both inflatable and traditional obstacles like vertical walls, low crawls and tire runs. The dyes are safe and easy to wash out, but they make a great picture at the end of the run, where participants get to join a post-run party with a DJ.

  • Costume 5k
    On one autumn morning every year at Creamy Acres Farm, the corn stalks shake from more than an early breeze. They are beset by monsters: vampires, werewolves, zombies, all racing through a winding trail as though in pursuit of the same quarry. They aren't hunting, though. They're vying for first place. Runners sweat underneath their faux fangs and matted fur as they compete in the Costume 5k. They zoom through the farm's corn maze and Night of Terror attractions on their way to the finish line, their shoes the only telltale sign of their human roots. Once they reach the race's end, they kick off a celebration, sharing refreshments and listening to music as the staff doles out awards. The race's chief concern is holiday spirit; therefore, its prizes honor top finishers as well as those who wore the best costume, devised the best group costume, and sang "Monster Mash" the least amount of times.
