Top 10 Most Creative Races

Posted by Ali Lawrence on Feb 28, 2014 in Health & Fitness |

Hi MarCom Land readers! I’m Jacky and I blog over at Keep Calm and Blog On. Alicia and I became blog friends a while back with our shared love of travel and fitness. We swapped posts about foam rollers and tips for staying healthy abroad and have decided to swap posts yet again.  Please feel free to stop by my blog anytime to say hello!


Last week I completed the BluePrint Cleanse which you can read about here. Since then, I’ve put into action a healthy eating and fitness plan to stay on track with a healthy lifestyle.  In order to stick to an exercise plan, I’ve decided to sign up and train for a 10K. In doing some research, I came across some amazing runs that take place across the USA. I give you, the top 10 most creative runs I could find…

1. Wine Country Half Marathon - Need I say more? Something tells me this isn’t great as far as hydration goes… but you go for a run through Napa Valley and water stations are replaced with wine stations. I’d run for that!

2. Ladies Night Out 5K - I originally saw this run when I was living in Boston. It’s so amazing, I can’t even. Basically a bunch of ladies hash it out for 3.1 miles and are greeted by a red carpet and scantily clad men at the finish line offering champagne and chocolate along with a variety of hors d’oeuvres. SIGN. ME. UP.

3. Hot Chocolate 15/5K - A great winter run idea!

4. Lov Run - It’s like a Facebook relationship status run, as your Bib number lists your status. Hope my future husband doesn’t mind my ten minute miles.

5. Diva Dash - A girly-girl run with tutus and feather boas. No mud and barbed wires here!

6. Toga Dash - Brings me right back to college…. run in a toga followed by a toga party.

7. Cupid’s Undie Run - This is hysterical! It takes place on Valentine’s Day weekend and you run in your undies to support the Children’s Tumor Foundation.

8. Krispy Kreme Challenge - Seems a bit counterproductive, but who am I to judge.

9. Wife Carrying Championship - I wish I were kidding. Leave it to the Finnish!

10. Zombie Race - I’m not really into the apocalypse craze, but I sure would run faster if I were being chased by zombies.

Have you ever competed in a race before?  Do you have any tips for 10k training?
