  • Tough Mudder
    Climbing walls, ice baths, pools of mud, electric shocks?a Tough Mudder isn't your average event. Each 10- to 12-mile course contains 20 adrenaline-pumping obstacles designed to test participants' strength and endurance, just like most local DMV lines. Runners clamber on top of each other to scale the slick, sloping wall of Pyramid Scheme or squeal with shock as they plunge into the Arctic Enema, a plastic-lined dumpster filled with thousands of pounds of ice. They even endure shocks from a forest of live wires known as Electroshock Therapy. But it's all worth it for the glass of beer at the end, plus the sense of camaraderie that develops among teammates. Many of those teammates go on to join the Mudder Legion, an organization for those who have participated in the event more than once. Tough Mudder also raises funds for the Wounded Warrior Project, which helps injured veterans transition to civilian life.

  • Appalachian Wilderness Guides
    Every trip leader at Appalachian Wilderness Guides feels a strong connection to the Appalachian National Scenic Trail. In fact, many of them have thru-hiked all 2,185 of its miles?but that's just the beginning of their qualifications. All of them have trained in wilderness first aid, have certification in "Leave No Trace Outdoors Ethics," and have never scolded a woodpecker for its annoying laugh. With these and other skills, they lead expeditions such as beginner day hikes throughout the mountains, multi-day camping trips, and wine-tasting treks throughout Georgia vineyards. Appalachian Wilderness Guides also runs a hostel for overnight guests as well as an Appalachian Trail school.

The events also feature bounce houses for kids and exhibits along with food and music.

  • Mitcham Farm
    When autumn strikes, the air might grow cooler, but the sun really shines on Mitcham Farm. That's the time of year that the farm truly comes to life, keeping families busy with a full day's worth of farm activities. Trusty hayrides circle the entire grounds, showcasing the fields of pick-your-own pumpkins, the giant sand pile and mountain slide, and the corn canons. It also gives a ground-level view of a seven-acre maze cut into the corn. If guests decide to navigate the twisting stalks, they'll have to use their powers of deduction by solving clues pertaining to a mystery or determining which scarecrow is most likely to accept bribes. When night falls on weekends, hayrides meander to the bonfire pit where guests can warm hands and cook marshmallows over the flickering flames. Of course, a hayride isn't your only option when it comes to touring the grounds––helicopter rides also whisk guests over the verdant property to give them a bird's eye view of all the autumn festivities below.

  • Stone Summit Climbing
    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Stone Summit facet_type_id: 0dccd420-5f2c-1032-b7cf-b37d0b8b7245 html_text: With their jagged ridges, multicolored faces, and thousands of holds affixed seemingly at random, the rock walls at Stone Summit look like cubist installations large enough to fill a small warehouse. Follow any series of holds up to the top of these expressionist monuments, though, and scores of individual routes emerge, offering challenges for everyone from entry-level beginners to the most seasoned scaler. Climbers can seek out the tops of routes as high as 60 feet off the facility floor, and bouldering enthusiasts have an entire room filled with near-horizontal overhangs and brain-teasing bouldering problems perfect for studying for the rock-climbing portion of the SAT. The facility complements its climbing focus with a range of non-climbing exercise opportunities, including treadmills, weight machines, and yoga classes.

  • Catalyst Sports
    Skiing. Snowboarding. Canoeing. Rock climbing. Horseback riding. To someone with a physical disability, activities like these might seem impossible. Yet Eric Gray, founder of Catalyst Sports, has taught disabled individuals how to perform each one?plus a few others. At Catalyst, Eric and his team empower people to not only overcome physical disabilities, but also to thrive with them. The organization provides unique recreational opportunities to individuals of all ages and ability levels, including adaptive rock climbing programs. In fact, Catalyst has grown into the largest such adaptive climbing program in the country. It has done so, in large part, by hosting frequent events and fundraisers, which are far better ways to raise money than playing the same Roman numerals in the lottery every week.
