  • Rhodes Races
    On January 17, 2014, runners along the water on North and South Flagler Drives will most likely be part of Sunshine State Races. The scenic route hosts a timed 5K race and a more challenging half marathon. Winners from each age division win awards?such as gift certificates and tickets to local events?and, at the end of the race, all participants receive a high-five from their running sneakers.

  • Zombies Got Guts
    Zombies traditionally crave human flesh, but the undead participating in the Zombies Got Guts race hunger for something else: to be human again. Donning their most creative zombie garb, racers compete on a 10-obstacle, 3K course, winning part of an antidote for every challenge they complete. Spectators can gather around the start and finish lines for a glimpse of the undead hoards setting off or––if they're lucky––transforming back into their old selves. The event also includes hourly tours of Fort Adams and a picnic on the Fort Adams parade field.

  • Jamestown Half Marathon
    Jamestown is ripe with stunning scenery. Narragansett Bay, the massive Newport Pell Bridge, and other breathtaking sights help distinguish the historic city. Participants in the Jamestown Half Marathon, however, shouldn't pause too long to take in the view, lest they fall behind and lose their chance at winning the race. The event?which outfits all participants in a commemorative T-shirt?makes up one part of the UnitedHealthcare Triple Crown.

  • Bold R Dash Race
    BoldrDash adds variety to the traditional 5K run, peppering their courses with more than two-dozen obstacles. But they don't want participants running between a few sparse obstacles, they want them climbing, swinging, sliding, and swimming all the way to the finish line. They even offer boot-camp training classes to prepare runners for the event. More important than providing a solid workout, Bold r Dash's events donate proceeds to local charities, schools, and community organizations.

  • GlowBash 5K
    As the sun sets, cityscapes buzz with neon silhouettes as runners in glow-in-the-dark garb race through the GlowBash 5K's metropolitan courses. But the late starting time and futuristically clad participants are not the only things that set this race apart from other 5K trots. Competing in teams of two or more, runners must follow 11 clues provided at the start of the race that will guide them to a series of predetermined checkpoints and challenges. Depending on the route they take, runners can cover anywhere from 3 to 5 miles in a path that can take roughly 2.5 hours to complete. After the race, each participant receives a medal and access to a post-race party, where they can mingle with fellow runners rather than going home and jogging alone on their human-sized hamster wheel. The race benefits a local charity.

  • Samurai Sprint Mud Run
    Not only does The Samurai Sprint Run allow participants to find their inner warrior, it lets them fight for a worthy cause. While tackling a series of 18 obstacles peppered throughout the course, they raise funds for Waves for Water, a non-profit organization that supplies clean water to underserved communities. But their task isn't easy. Runners scale an inclined wall, zip down a 100-foot slide into a pool of mud, and even climb a reverse staircase. Thankfully, the finish line brings relief. There, an after party helps everyone involved celebrate their accomplishments with food, beers from Buzzard's Bay Brewing, Inc., and live tunes from Chris Waters, a local Bob Marley tribute artist.
