The Crazed Escapade 5K Fun Run/Walk throws a pie in the face of 5K expectations, offering a wacky and very messy obstacle course for participants of all skill levels. The fun run—emphasis on the fun—sends contestants dashing or strolling through stations such as a gigantic rainbow-colored slip-and-slide and a bubble fun zone. Other stops include a zombie forest, a paint-balloon air raid, old-fashioned pie throwing, and the heart-pounding adventure of outrunning a human bowling ball. Unlike many other 5Ks, the Crazed Escapade features rest areas where contestants can engage in dance-offs with cartoonish mascots or, you know, actually rest. A portion of the proceeds will go to Shade Tree.
Sprinting around with a beet-red face glistening with sweat is no way to run a 5K; it's much better to add some other colors to the mix. During the 5KColorFest, participants run, jog, or walk along a three-mile course that periodically explodes with color (courtesy of safe, non-toxic color powder made from cornstarch). After getting pelted with every color of the rainbow, racers compare their newly chromatic outfits at a post-race party complete with live DJs and dancing. All proceeds from the 5KColorFest benefit scientific research on cancer and Alzheimer's disease.
St. Baldrick isn't a real saint—but the good works of his namesake foundation might put him in contention for beatification. The name is a portmanteau of "bald" and "Patrick," which makes sense if you're familiar with the nonprofit's primary fundraising activity. Read on to learn more:
The history: Back in 1999, three Irish American business executives wanted to find a way to give back. They settled on shearing their hair off in solidarity with kids with cancer. Thanks to sponsors, they eventually raised $104,000 for the Children’s Oncology Group at their first event at a St. Patrick's Day party in Manhattan. Baldrick, get it?
The current era: In the years since, volunteers with the St. Baldrick's Foundation have organized hundreds of head-shaving events across the country, raising millions of dollars for research into childhood cancers. The organization's grants also fund developments in supportive care for improved quality of life among young patients and survivors, many of whom deal with severe side effects and chronic health problems from aggressive therapies.
The Lepre-Con: This zany event is yet another frontier in fundraising efforts for childhood-cancer research. The inaugural event features a family-friendly 5K and 1-mile run/walk, but its bigger claim to fame is an attempt to break the world record for the largest gathering of leprechauns (held by Ireland, of course). Each participant will receive a leprechaun costume, consisting of a hat, beard, and leprechaun shirt. The costumes set the stage for the after party to follow, featuring live music, beer, and a signature Irish jig.
Generally, adulthood forces people to give up childish pleasure, robbing them of the joy associated with playing in puddles, unearthing hidden treasure, and being silly in public. Sierra Adventure Sports wants grownups to regress, if only for a day. In service of that goal, the company organizes a variety of novel races that range from city scavenger hunts for the casual adventurer to creative triathlon courses for the ambitious athlete.
Scavenger Blitz, for instance, turns exploring one's city into a fun, fast-paced race scattered with clues, obstacle courses, and riddles. Racers in teams of at least two scour the urban jungle in search of 12 clues, which can include challenges, riddles, or orders that need be completed before crossing the finish line. Some send racers hunting for a snapshot in front of a landmark, whereas others challenge them to complete some special feat, such as conquering an obstacle course on stilts.
The Mad Mud Run challenges participants to sprint and frolic through a dirty and deliciously fun outdoor obstacle course littered with manmade obstructions such as cargo nets, hills of hay bales, monkey bars, and slimy mud pits. Extreme Heat Adventure Races combine equal parts triathlon and scavenger hunt to create a 10–12K journey filled with running, river rafting, and mystery challenges that could pit teams against anything from blindfolded puzzles to wall climbs. Most Sierra Adventure Sports events encourage racers to compete in costumes of all types save for gremlins, which multiply in water and unfairly dominate the timed results.
Growing up in a small town, Tanya Carrier discovered a talent—and more importantly, a passion—for running at the age of 13. Running helped give her confidence and identity in high school. It helped see her through college, as the only member of her extended family to attend. It taught her discipline, which guided her in qualifying for the Boston Marathon, earning a master's degree in special education, and, ultimately, founding Downtown Runners. As she told Joe Schoenmann of the Las Vegas Sun, she created the organization to share her passion with others and to provide an outlet for people to exercise together.
Tanya knows that Las Vegas already has its fair share of 5Ks, so she planned her inaugural two for the off seasons. Her first race, the Sprinkler Sprint 5K, offsets summer's heat with watery obstacles, such as squirt guns, water cannons, and Slip 'n Slides. Her second 5K takes its inspiration from strip poker, encouraging runners to bundle up against the winter chill with clothes they'd like to donate to charity, losing a layer at predetermined stops along the route. For each item of clothing lost, they get a playing card to use in a poker hand at the end of the race. Winning hands can be used to claim prizes or bluff other racers into believing they haven't even started running yet.
