The innovation around 5K runs in the last few years has been remarkable. Now running the quick 3.1 miles has become synonymous with the word fun instead of exercise.
We bet you have never seen people drink a beer during a typical marathon, but these aren’t marathons and the people running in them aren’t there to prove anything except that you indeed can have a good time while getting an early morning work out in! Check out 3 of our favorite 5K races below.
Insane Inflatable 5K
Thought your days of jumping on inflatables were over? Think again. This exciting 5k will bring your inner child out and have you jumping around like your 6 again! If you sign up in advance you are looking at $49, on race day its $75. Learn more here.
The Color Run
The Color Run went from being a crazy idea a few years ago to being a US phenomenon. After all, who doesn’t like getting powdered paint thrown in their face!? Of the three, this is the most widely available and is very likely coming to your state. Learn more about this awesome experience here.
This 5k lives up to its title. If you sign up and more importantly show up, you will bring your inner warrior out. If you don’t believe me just watch a video on the races facebook page. You can sign up here.
If the above 5k races grabbed your attention, you should also check out The Hot Chocolate 5K (and 15K) which originated in Chicago. Although we haven’t tried it yet, it seems like it lives up to its tagline “America’s Sweetest Race”.
