As part of the Wissahickon Valley Park—which covers 1,800 acres—the wooded trail shelters joggers, cyclists, hikers, and even those on horseback as they explore the area's natural flora and fauna. A frequent spot for organized races, the trail is also marked by historic and geological sites. The Friends of Wissahickson, or FOW, is a non-profit organization that started in 1924. With over 1,600 members, they work in conjunction with the Philadelphia Parks and Recreation to restore historical structures, eliminate invasive plants, monitor watershed management, and restore trails with the Sustainable Trails Initiative.

  • Rebel Race
    Rebel Race's military-style obstacle courses challenge athletes from all backgrounds to shed humdrum day-to-day routines to experience the primal joys of mud, sweat and glory.

After dashing through fire, climbing walls, and scaling mountains of hay, race participants bask in the collective kudos of parties, which include live entertainment, food, and beer for purchase. Camping options encourage participants and spectators to transform races into weekend getaways, while awards recognize each day's standout competitors and most-humble mud pits.

  • Bucks County Half Marathon
    As the first weeks of spring revive the towering trees of Tyler State Park, runners savor the scenery of the season as they embark on the Bucks County Half Marathon. In the fifth annual event—with proceeds benefiting the Autism Cares Foundation—advanced runners, casual joggers, and even more causal walkers showcase their gaits as they take a double loop through Tyler Park. Rolling hills give runners a slight challenge, but aren't steep enough to roll a Slinky alongside during the race. Racers equipped with Jaguar chip timing aim for their personal best and a die-cast medal (awarded by age division and for the top three male and female finishers), while families and spectators root on runners from the finish line.

  • Xperience Adventures
    Xperience Adventures sends thrill seekers scampering through cities across the U.S., unlocking clues and toppling challenges en route to race-day glory. Teams of up to five rely on technology—the Internet, texting, and apps—and their own savvy to move quickly from one checkpoint to the next. The catch: they can only travel under their own power or via public transit, meaning no hitching rides with taxis, pedicabs, or flying saucers. Though participants map out their own itinerary, races typically cover a distance of three to six miles. Once every team has successfully conquered the course, they can meet up during an after party at a local brewery, restaurant, or sports bar to celebrate their accomplishments with food and drink specials.
