Not just your average run…

Last year, my sister and I participated in a 5k benefiting National Breast Cancer Foundation. We had tons of fun and plan on doing it again this year. I wanted to make a list of some of the runs that I have found. And I want to share some with you!!

The Color Run

The Color Run is a 5k that is mostly focused on having fun with friends and family. It is a race for everyone! There are two rules though.. 1.Wear a white shirt or mostly white shirt. and 2.color plastered EVERYTHING at the finish! πŸ™‚ So basically everyone starts at the starting line and by the time you get to the finish line you are completely covered in color!!

Dirty Girl Mud Run


The Dirty Girl Mud Run is a 5k for all women (sorry guys). My sister and I did this one last year and had a blast. It’s a great way to spend some time with friends and family and get dirty! There are a certain number of obstacles. You will either run, climb, walk or crawl. Trust me, it is a lot of fun and it is a great way to support breast cancer.

Run for your lives

Run for your lives is the first interactive zombie infested obstacle race! How it works is that you get a flag belt. The belt is your health and the zombies want your flags and probably also your brains. If you lose your flags then you are infected and the zombies win. Now, there are health packs through out the course so there is a chance you can make it. So good luck!!

Tough Mudder

The Tough Mudder is a hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle course designed by British Special Forces. It is to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie.It also helps raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. If you think you are tough enough then take the challenge!
Spartan Race

Now, the Spartan Race is, what I think, the king of all obstacle races! It was designed by seven insane athletes and a Royal Marine. There is the Spartan Sprint, Super Spartan, Spartan Beast and if you can make it through all that, then you have a chance at the Death Race. The Death race is the championship of obstacle racing!! Just pure craziness!!

There are tons more!! I just picked a few races that I thought were interesting. If you are from the Houston area, I found a link that shows all the events for 2013.
I hope you guys try some of these out and if you have share your experiences!!
