  • 3rd Annual Elysian Park 5k Eco run
    There will be countless footprints left on the 3rd Annual Elysian Park 5k Eco Run's cross-country course. A major carbon footprint won't be among them, though. Green Running Events, the people behind the run, strive to organize sustainable events. For example, they arrange car pools and opt for digital goody bags instead of the tangible, money-filled duffle bags of yesteryear.

  • The Original Mud Run
    The story of the Los Angeles Dodgers begins in 1884 in Brooklyn, New York, where the team tried out such names as the Bridegrooms, the Superbas, and the Robins before finally settling on the Dodgers in 1932. A scant 15 years later, the club played a vital role in the American civil-rights movement, as Jackie Robinson became the first African American to don a Major League uniform. When Robinson retired after the 1956 season, players such as Don Drysdale and Duke Snider picked up the torch and, along with owner Walter O'Malley, led the team on a cross-country move to Los Angeles in 1958. The club settled into its new home four years later, erecting the stadium in which it's since won four World Series titles. Unlike most modern fields, which use giant green screens to appear surrounded by city skylines, Dodger Stadium sits in the shadow of the real San Gabriel Mountains, and the 56,000-seat ballpark was selected by MLB players as the best stadium in baseball in a 2003 Sports Illustrated poll.

  • The Color Fight
    When runners cross the finish line at The Color Fight, they won't see a big digital clock keeping track of the time. For one thing, the race organizers don't track race times, and even if they did, the ticking numbers would be cloaked by a cloud of colorful powder. That's because at each kilometer of the 3-mile race, spectators and race personnel launch handfuls of dyed powder at the runners, creating a vivid spectrum that symbolizes the event's emphasis of fun over victory. In order to make the perfect canvas for the rainbow of colors, runners are encouraged to wear white clothing or wrap themselves in a rain cloud.
