Muddy Miles (July 17, 2016)
For anyone who’s never run an adventure race, I highly recommend the Muddy Miles races. Test your obstacle course skills and get dirty with friends in this 2-mile muddy race held in beautiful North Idaho.
FroYo Run (July 23, 2016)
Would you run for froyo? Then this is the race for you! Held in Kirkland, Washington, runners of the FoYo Run end with a sprint through a tunnel of mist and a bowl of frozen yogurt. With options such as a 5k, 10k or walking, this race is a fit for the whole family.
Run Hopi (August 6, 2016)
If you’re into running with a little history under your feet, then you’ll love the Run Hopi race! The course takes runners through the Hopi Indian reservation in Old Oraibi, Arizona, and is a part trail part dirt road race! This race has both 5k and 10k options.
Crater Lake Rims Runs (August 13, 2016)
Talk about a run with a view! The Crater Lake Rims Runs offers a 6.7-mile run, a half marathon and a marathon through beautiful Crater Lake National Park, Oregon. This race juxtaposes amazing views with some rugged mountain trails.
ET Full Moon Marathon (August 20-21, 2016)
What’s not to love about a race with a sense of humor? This Nevada race starts at night (!!!) and takes runners along a highway known for its UFO sightings and proximity to the mysterious Area 51. The ET Full Moon offers a 5k, 10k, half and full marathon. And for those looking to venture into the insane world that is ultrarunning, a 51k!
Kauai Marathon & Half Marathon (September 16, 2016)
Did someone say Hawaii? If you’ve never been the the Hawaiian Islands, this race is your excuse to finally go. Held on the aptly named Garden Isle, the Kauai half and full marathon will take you through some of the most beautiful spots on the island. The best part is, when it’s over, you can cool off and relax in the beautiful Pacific Ocean.
The Twisted Maze Run (September 9, 2016)
Ever wanted to run or walk through a corn field maze at night? Here’s your chance! This 2-mile run is held at the Hidden Trails Corn Maze in West Salem, Wisconsin. Glow in the dark attire is encouraged, and children under 13 are free with registering adult.
