  • Muckfest MS Jacksonville
    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.

  • Color in Motion 5k
    Throngs of excited runners crouch along the starting line, all dressed in pristine white T-shirts. As the Color in Motion 5K begins, the sea of bodies sets off along the course, where handfuls of purple-, blue-, and yellow-colored powder start flying in from the sidelines. The safe concoction of cornstarch and dye sprinkles onto faces, shirts, shorts, and skin, dressing runners in a technicolor haze. Teams or individuals make their way through the 5K course, and finish the race wearing a pallet of washable and biodegradable paint. Each race partners and benefits local charities, with racers running individually, in teams, or sponsored by their favorite Crayola color.

  • Funk~N~Run 5k
    Crowds of people wearing white T-shirts, tutus, and old wedding dresses race through the streets during the Funk N Run 5k. They wear white because a rainbow of colors will pelt their clothing during the event. It's not totally necessary to wear white, though; the colored-cornstarch dye will show up on garments of all hues, including black yoga pants. This untimed, noncompetitive race is known for its celebratory party atmosphere, but that's not the only reason to attend; the charitable event also works to give soldiers and their families memorable homecoming experiences.
