The great thing about mud is that it doesn't discriminate. That fact is certainly true during Run the Jailbreak events, where participants of all shapes, sizes, ages, and fitness levels end up sporting the same muddy casing by day's end. During these events, though, mud isn't so much given as it is earned. Between arriving clean and leaving filthy, everyone pushes their way across Run the Jailbreak's muddy course: a 3.1-mile gantlet riddled with more than 20 obstacles. Runners high-step through tires, army-crawl beneath wires, scale walls, and slither through mucky tunnels en route to the finish line. There, they're greeted with a medal and a beer, just like actual prisoners who manage to escape prison.
Summit Climbing, Yoga & Fitness sprawls across 10,000 square feet lined with towering structures for boundless bouldering and rope climbing along with its own onsite yoga studio. Manmade walls adorned with brightly colored handholds emerge from the ground, daring aspiring climbers to decode their paths. Fingertips dipped in rock chalk learn to cling to the hardened monoliths with firm grace, keeping on the lookout for the single book spine that triggers access to a revolving door and secret chocolate fountain. Guests can gab with experts about form and new-equipment purchases at the climb shop, or take a breather on a comfy couch to rest, reflect on a new route, or admire their brand-new Popeye forearms.
In addition to its scaling structures, Summit Climbing, Yoga & Fitness hosts yoga classes in an on-site studio to boost climbing flexibility. Here, guests choose from a variety of formats, including CoreFusion, Slow Flow, Power Yoga, and Yin Yoga, a pose-intensive class that helps range of motion and strengthen connective tissues.
Climbers negotiate a web of routes that snake up walls that stretch as far as 25 feet toward the roof inside Dyno-Rock Indoor Climbing Center’s cavernous, air-conditioned space. The center sprawls to 16,000 square feet in all, including 2,000 square feet dedicated exclusively to bouldering. Climbers of all stripes will find challenges suited to their skill level, from straightforward routes with large handholds for beginners to inverted ceiling climbs for advanced spider people. The center’s staff also regularly scrambles the routes and handholds to keep climbers on their toes. All first-time visitors must take a quick course that helps them climb confidently, understand gym rules, and ensure a safe experience for everyone in the gym.

Brad and Judy Lee are devoted environmentalists: Judy is a wildlife rehabilitator, and both received an award from the International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council in 2005 for their work. So it's hardly a surprise that after visiting a few aerial parks
in the Northeast in 2012, the couple decided they wanted to give Texans a chance to mingle with Mother Nature, too. Spread across seven acres near Trinity River, the result—Trinity Forest Adventure Park—immerses visitors in a world free of cell phones, job worries, and pay-per-view sunsets.
Here, adventures unfold on six aerial obstacle courses in the trees, each with four degrees of difficulty. Thrill-seekers zip, dive, soar, and commando crawl through 200-year-old oaks as they conquer more than 70 rope bridges, ziplines, cargo nets, swing tires, and ladders, all while safely attached to a harness. No matter the course, though, trips are what guests make them: they can be laid back and appreciative of the surroundings, or adrenaline-pumping tests of mettle.
