  • 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.

  • Bubble Palooza
    Typically, bubbles are associated with getting something clean?they remove stains from clothes, or lift dirt from elbows. But at Bubble Palooza, bubbles experience a bit of an identity crisis. Here, relieved of their duty as degunkers and loaded up with non-toxic color, they help transform a three-mile route into a vibrant, foam-filled wonderland. Along that route, and oftentimes buried beneath bubbles, participants clad in white run, walk, and skip their way from one end of the course to the other. In the process, those same participants are blasted by a bubbly rainbow of foam, becoming magnets for the greens, blues, and other colors carried by a seemingly endless deluge of bubbles. After the event, the color-saturated participants gather to celebrate at the Bubble Bash, where they listen to music, dance, and attempt to lure an untamed bubble into coming home as their pet.

  • The Lantern Run - Firefly Run Dallas
    In temperate and tropical climates, the glow of the firefly delights onlookers with its playful, buzzing luminescence. It also inspires people to decorate themselves like Christmas trees and go running. The Firefly Run and the Lantern Run are such events, and the 5K illuminated night race allows participants to let their creativity flow all for the benefit of local charities. Runners and walkers of all experience levels are welcome, and attendees are treated to a post-race party with entertainment, refreshments, and, of course, visual effects.

  • United Health & Fitness
    Sean M. Broderick’s eclectic mix of experiences in the personal-training business echoes his whole-body approach to wellness. Rather than just relying on being an internationally accredited instructor, which he is, he expanded his knowledge by becoming a sports-performance coach, athlete, nutritional consultant, and fitness model. Today, he serves as the head trainer at United Health & Fitness, where he and his colleagues boost the well-being of men, women, and children of all ages and experience levels. Within the bright-turquoise walls of the fitness center, certified trainers spot students as they strengthen and tone muscles during small-group exercise classes. In doing so, they demonstrate the basic steps of weightlifting in Bodybuilding 101 or help their pupils hasten heart rates with choreographed footwork in kickboxing classes. In addition to group sessions, trainers take pride in customizing workout regimes to suit each individual during one-on-one personal training, which follows the business’s motto that “there is no generic person in this world.”

  • Printsmith
    A lot of 5K runs take advantage of crisp, fall air to keep the event cool and fun, but the October Beerfest 5K and Lawn Games Tourney takes a few additional cues from the season. The organizers lay out a trail that winds through trees just changing colors, and loops around to pass a on-course beer-chugging station twice. Of course, if running and drinking don't necessarily mix for some participants, there's plenty more beer at the finish line, along with grilled hot dogs and hamburgers. Additionally, the day features a tournament of lawn games, such as corn hole, ladderball, and beer pong, that takes place between teams of two throughout the day. A DJ spends the whole day adding a soundtrack to the outdoor fun, and organizers invite guests to wear their Halloween costumes or scariest business-casual outfit.
