The gritty, dirty fun of mud runs has become popular among runners, but the creators of The Slime Run thought they could improve on the formula. So in their races, they replace that mix of water and wet earth with their own custom formula: a green, slick slime that inevitably covers runners as they navigate a 5K course. After conquering each of four slime zones, they're presented with a relatively simple obstacle, but one whose objective is more difficult when you're coated in slime.
Of course, there's more fun to be had than just getting messy. At the finish line, a runner's party with food vendors, a beer garden, and live music awaits race finishers, as do perks:
race medals, mugs, and headbands. At the end of the day, the emphasis is as much on safety as it is on fun, which is why each batch of slime is
mixed from hypoallergenic, edible materials and not material left over from the set of Ghostbusters II.
Illumination works in many ways at WIN’s 5K Glow Run. First all all, there's the participants themselves, who take to the running trail at dusk clad in neon and glow sticks, creating a kaleidoscopic parade of luminescence as they charge towards the finish line. But more importantly, this nighttime journey is designed to shed light upon domestic violence, with proceeds benefitting Women In Need's (WIN) mission to provide free services such as 24-hour crisis hotlines, counseling, and legal advocacy. The chip-timed race features a slew of awards—including prizes for top finishers and accolades for most creating use of glow sticks and neon—and concludes with a after-race glow party with raffle prizes.
Kicking off the FunFest 25th Anniversary is the Jail Break 5K, a fun run raising money to help restore the historic Calaboose in downtown Royce City. After the dust of the race settles, participants will be able to see Old West gunfights, a Doggie Contest sponsored by Brushy Creek Retrievers, live music, pie-eating contests, a kids' zone with a zipline, and a Microfest brimming with craft beers.

The roughly 5-kilometer Survivor Mud Run challenges athletes from around the country with 20 mud-soaked obstacles, including monkey bars, tire courses, giant slip 'n' slides, and net climbs. A team of licensed contractors builds all the obstacles, ensuring stability throughout. The dirt-drenched course allows participants to put their stamina, physical fitness, and mental determination to the test in a much more fun and safer way than challenging a Central African chimpanzee to a staring contest. Adrenaline and sheer force of will boost runners over walls and beneath low-slung wires in the mud-filled trenches, leading them to the finish line where a post-competition party awaits with beer, music, and food. After each race, announcers honor the top three male and female participants in each age division, bestowing a special distinction upon the runner who was brave enough to don the wackiest costume.
As suitable for the casual runner as it is for the athlete whose shoe-odometers have turned over, the Boogie Down 5K Color Run invites one and all to hit the road for a good cause. It wouldn't be a color run without a blast of nontoxic dye, so participants make sure to bring sportswear they don't mind getting a little livelier. The run raises funds to support ministry in Quito, Ecuador, where FBW works with orphans hosting clinics and soccer camps.
