  • Graffiti Run
    The creators of The Colorful 5K use the term “run” very loosely. Less of a race, and more a celebration of the human spirit, the Graffiti Run encourages participants to dash, dance, prance, skip, cartwheel, or walk the course as they douse each other in vibrant hues that span the full spectrum. Each run also donates a portion of proceeds to a local charity, which range from Special Olympics affiliates and scholarship funds to city cleanup and beautification projects.

  • Mighty Mud Dash
    The Mighty Mud Dash might only be a 5K run, but it's littered with intense obstacles designed to slow down even the strongest competitors. Each course features 20–24 obstacles that include everything from barbed wire to muddy trenches. The Spider Webs, for instance, use hundreds of yards of bungee cords draped across tree limbs to ensnare runners as they escape from the woods. A mud pit becomes even more treacherous with the addition of more than 600 40-pound bags of ice, earning it the name Arctic Freeze. And right before the finish line stands a 14-foot wall that's been drenched in mud from the runners who were faster, but didn't have enough of a lead to run home for a quick shower. The postrace party rewards muddy participants for surviving the challenge with beer and food. One free beer is included with registration, along with a T-shirt and medal.

Zumba, ballroom dance, and Les Mills group exercise classes shake up adult workout routines, as complimentary childcare frees up parents to pursue fitness goals. Meanwhile, adult sport leagues such as basketball and racquetball result in friendly competition and hyper-literate team names inspired by obscure philosophers.
