  • Action Kayak Adventures
    On father-son fishing trips, Bart Swab’s dad taught him not only how to cast his line but also how to treat the aquatic ecosystem surrounding him with respect. Now a licensed and insured guide, Swab helps other fisherman appreciate the open water’s beauty, helming kayak trips through Florida’s pristine saltwater marshes. After arming prospective kayakers with safety tips and familiarizing them with their fishing equipment, Swab guides lead paddlers into the water. They maintain a 3-inch draft that allows students in kayaks to sneak up on fish without having to glue sequins to their skin to look like scales. Kayakers can also gaze through binoculars at the diverse fauna roaming the area’s shores. Trips range from a half day to a full day, and for a more structured route, participants can opt for destination trips to seasonal hot spots, where they can search out fish such as black drum, sheepshead, and tarpon.

  • 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.
