  • Mermaid Half Marathon San Diego
    The Mermaid Series, with runs across the San Diego, the East Bay, and San Francisco, strives to build a community that inspires women to realize their full potential and achieve a heathy lifestyle. And when it comes to inspiration, it's hard to beat the stellar views of the San Francisco edition of the Mermaid Run. Derring-do distance runners can take on the Sirena10 Mile course, which departs from Little Marina Green and treks along the Presidio Promenade/Bay Trail before sending the fleet footed across the Golden Gate Bridge and back. The flat and fast 5K and 10K tracks are packed with scenery, too, with a course around Crissy Field that encompasses the bay, the bridge, and the skyline. All runners, AKA "mermaids," receive a snazzy race shirt, a finisher necklace, and a post-race nosh to refuel their exhausted flippers.

  • Night Nation Run
    A night spent dancing to a DJ at the club burns calories and works up a sweat, so why not put the dance floor on a 5K course? That's exactly what Night Nation Run has done—participants run, walk, or dance their way through a race course illuminated by interactive light shows and pumping with electronic dance music from live DJs. After partying through multiple DJ stages, revelers finish at a raucous main-stage after party. Headliner DJs soundtrack the event on the main stage while participants celebrate crossing the finish line as a member of the Night Nation.

  • San Diego Super Run 2016
    What better way to celebrate the end of football season than running even farther than the players in the big game? The San Diego Super Run 2016 dares participants to complete a 10K or 5K course, both of which cover flat terrain that's easy on the thighs. The courses lead runners through local streets and sidewalks along the bay, and brings them back to South Shores Park, where every finisher receives a medal and a Super Sunday long sleeve party tech shirt.

  • Del Mar Mud Run
    The mud sucks at arms and legs. A horned helmet tumbles into the muck, sinking out of sight, as a crowd of bodies above surges forward. The end of the pit comes into sight, and someone, dripping and muddy, crests the edge, reaching back to help the person behind them. This may be a race, but the after party at the finish line will be more fun with friends in tow. Welcome to the Del Mar Mud Run. The five-kilometer race wends a new course through historic Del Mar Fairgrounds every year, pitting runners against 12 or more obstacles. Those that don't involve mud tend to make use of foam, or involve tasks that are especially challenging when hands are slick and slippery. Racers might wade through pits, jump chasms, balance across tight ropes, or scale walls, earning the t-shirt and free beer that await them at the end of the course. The organizers encourage people to wear costumes, as long as those costumes involve shoes that cover the ankle. Otherwise, the mud tends to suck shoes right off feet, adding them to its collection of things to wear once it finally has a body.

  • ROC Race 5K
    The ROC Race is a 5K fun run with a catch—a dozen of them, to be exact. Twelve giant obstacles stand in the way of victory, including a wrecking ball that threatens to knock runners off their path. The various challenges draw their inspiration from the world's most extreme game shows, where contestants have to run through tires, swing on ropes, and swoosh down giant slides. To make things even more exciting, ROC's organizers encourage participants to dress up in wacky costumes like tutus or outfits inspired by superheroes such as the Fantastic 5K Finisher. This epic event descends on cities across the U.S., welcoming runners ages 13 and up to fend off water and foam before greeting crowds of spectators at the finish line. A post-race experience keeps things going with even more foam and festivities.
