  • Zombie Charge
    Before they set foot on Zombie Charge's 5K obstacle course, participants have a choice: remain human or join the undead. Hordes of ghouls chase runners navigating 8–12 challenges—such as climbing walls and tunnels—set up throughout woodland trails, open fields, and muddy swamps. Those crossing the finish line with at least one belt flag still attached are counted among the 5K's survivors; handlers stand by with antidotes for less fortunate racers. Afterward, a Survival Party lets participants unwind with games of tug of war and corn hole, live music, or photo ops with some of the event's undead.

  • The Big Red 5K
    Ray Heon’s friends and family describe him as a man who had a big heart, a part of which was devoted to the Washington Redskins. These traits inspired the name for The Big Red 5K, a race established to celebrate Ray’s life after he died of cancer last November. Participants are welcome to run or walk the course, which begins at Lyman Memorial High School, loops around the Lebanon Green, and then ends at the Jonathan Trumbull Library. It’s fitting that those two buildings bookend the race, as a portion of all proceeds will be used to donate technological devices to them. Runners can commemorate their day by posing for photographers before or after the race, and they each receive a race packet with a T-shirt, race bib, and swag from the race sponsors. Participants or robots at the end of their battery packs can also opt to complete just a small segment of the race (one lap around the Lebanon Green). Those there to cheer runners on can spend the day listening to live music and visiting the food and merchandise vendors.

  • The Race to End Domestic Violence
    In memory of MPO Peter J. Lavery and Officer Ciara McDermott, The Race to End Domestic Violence honors the sacrifice of uniformed police officers and those escaping domestic violence. On December 30, Master Police Officer Peter J. Lavery, the youngest of three police officer brothers, was fatally shot while responding to a domestic disturbance call. His memory serves as the inspiration for the 5K of his namesake that takes runners and walkers through off-road dirt trails and grass to raise funds for domestic violence support groups. Additionally, the race raises funds to support the Peter J. Lavery Memorial Scholarship Fund, which aids those seeking an education in law enforcement or criminal justice.

  • Fitathlon Challenge
    The Fitathlon Challenge blends the format and philosophy of decathlons and triathlons with the accessibility of a 5K. Great for all fitness levels, the event divides participants into four categories—Newbie, Beginner, Challenger, and Competitor. Separated into waves, runners move through a course fraught with obstacles designed to test strength, endurance, athleticism, and mental toughness. These obstacles include tire flips, wall climbs, and hill sprints that leave bodies sweaty and fatigued and minds feelings as confused as a fish in a geology class. Those competing in the Competitor division are eligible for cash and prizes awarded to the top three finishers in the male and female groups. A portion of all proceeds goes to benefit a local charity.

  • CrossFit Gansett
    Before she was leading groups through workouts of the day, or WODs, Lecia DiPietro was a standout high school and college basketball player. After graduating, Lecia unexpectedly found something that piqued her interest even more than basketball: CrossFit. Driven by her newfound passion, the Narragansett native opened CrossFit Gansett in 2013 with her partner Ashley Schneck. Here, small groups grunt and grind their way through high-intensity workouts under the direction of Lecia and her staff of expert coaches. On Ramp programs help beginners get up to speed, and classes are capped at 10 to ensure each exerciser receives proper coaching and to comply with government regulations that everyone everywhere should have room to twirl.
