A serpentine path winding through a muddy field, the 5-mile course at MuckFest MS is designed to get runners as dirty as possible while also testing their endurance. More than 20 elaborate obstacles—including mud lakes, steel-constructed obstacles, crawls through muck, and rope ladders—further separate contestants from the finish line. Among the more grueling challenges are a two-story wall of connected ropes and a fireman's ladder whereupon competitors must slide down a 20-foot pole or else they turn into a dalmatian. Finishing times are tracked by in-bib chip timing, and both competitive and recreational runners are encouraged to participate. Runners can also band together to form fundraising teams, whose earnings benefit multiple sclerosis research and direct-support services for those living with MS.

Most people beat the heat by becoming sedentary: laying on the beach, lounging in a hammock, or sleeping on top of electric fans. But Jacksonville Beach Shipwreck Island Waterpark keeps customers cool in a more thrilling way. Besides the obligatory lazy river (720 feet long) and a 500,000 gallon wave pool, the park includes four extreme slides and other rides for kids of all ages.
Eye Catcher: Explore the Pirate's Play Village. Kids of all ages scamper up and down the attraction's three stories, descending down slides, blasting one another with water cannons, or cleaning their teeth with water nozzles.
For School-Age Kids: The Rage reaches speeds as high as 18 mph as it sends riders on a waterborne roller coaster ride.
For Older Kids: From 40 feet into the air, The Eye of the Storm drops riders into concentric circles before dropping them into eight feet of water.
For Toddlers: Kiddie Cove, a play area for the tiny set, features a splash pad and two small slides
Take a Break: The Wave Riders Grill serves snacks such as french fries, fruit, and popcorn
For more than 50 years, bowlers have hurled balls down Beach Bowl's gleaming lanes, vying to topple over groups of unwitting pins. By day, the alleys host friendly matches and kids’ birthday parties, and by night, they light up for cosmic bowling with day-glo stripes. To bowl higher scores, competitors can lubricate their minds with cocktails from the Strike Zone Lounge, and fuel up between frames with hot and cold sandwiches and snacks at the snack bar. Afterward, players can overturn losing games with a rematch at the foosball or pool tables in the arcade.
For some good old-fashioned fun, play a game of mini golf at Adventure Landing in Jacksonville Beach.
