  • The Lantern Run - Firefly Run Dallas
    In temperate and tropical climates, the glow of the firefly delights onlookers with its playful, buzzing luminescence. It also inspires people to decorate themselves like Christmas trees and go running. The Firefly Run and the Lantern Run are such events, and the 5K illuminated night race allows participants to let their creativity flow all for the benefit of local charities. Runners and walkers of all experience levels are welcome, and attendees are treated to a post-race party with entertainment, refreshments, and, of course, visual effects.

  • United Health & Fitness
    Sean M. Broderick’s eclectic mix of experiences in the personal-training business echoes his whole-body approach to wellness. Rather than just relying on being an internationally accredited instructor, which he is, he expanded his knowledge by becoming a sports-performance coach, athlete, nutritional consultant, and fitness model. Today, he serves as the head trainer at United Health & Fitness, where he and his colleagues boost the well-being of men, women, and children of all ages and experience levels. Within the bright-turquoise walls of the fitness center, certified trainers spot students as they strengthen and tone muscles during small-group exercise classes. In doing so, they demonstrate the basic steps of weightlifting in Bodybuilding 101 or help their pupils hasten heart rates with choreographed footwork in kickboxing classes. In addition to group sessions, trainers take pride in customizing workout regimes to suit each individual during one-on-one personal training, which follows the business’s motto that “there is no generic person in this world.”

  • Printsmith
    A lot of 5K runs take advantage of crisp, fall air to keep the event cool and fun, but the October Beerfest 5K and Lawn Games Tourney takes a few additional cues from the season. The organizers lay out a trail that winds through trees just changing colors, and loops around to pass a on-course beer-chugging station twice. Of course, if running and drinking don't necessarily mix for some participants, there's plenty more beer at the finish line, along with grilled hot dogs and hamburgers. Additionally, the day features a tournament of lawn games, such as corn hole, ladderball, and beer pong, that takes place between teams of two throughout the day. A DJ spends the whole day adding a soundtrack to the outdoor fun, and organizers invite guests to wear their Halloween costumes or scariest business-casual outfit.

  • 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 Me Rad
    Color Me Rad is back and better than ever with its 2015 tour, staging 5K races that transform runners into mobile rainbows by launching cheerful barrages of colored cornstarch and a whole new GEL color. Each color station along the racetrack flings a new pigment at passersby, who wear white shirts to enhance the chromatic onslaught's costuming effects. Brilliant neon-blue, green, purple, and yellow clouds dapple participants along the way, and the race concludes with a prismatic finish-line finale as sprinters chuck colors at each other in celebration. The race's noncompetitive credo shifts the emphasis from speed to silliness, and a portion of its proceeds go to local charities. Upon registration, each runner collects a Color Me Rad T-shirt and a pair of RAD knee-high socks, sponsor gifts, and a race bib. Also, new for 2015, all runners will receive access to free professional digital photo downloads. Though they don't receive a gift packet, runners who are 7 years old and younger can run for free.
