From zombies to barbed wire to colorful dust, themed races are popping up all over the country. These trendy races can make exercising enjoyable – but with so many options, how do you choose which run is right for you? Check out our top 6 picks:
Are you the creative type? The Color Run may be the organized race for you! Participants in these races – hosted all over the country – wear white at the starting line, but by the end of the 5K race, you’ll look like a masterful piece of art. At every kilometer, runners are greeted with clouds of beautifully colored (and non-toxic!) cornstarch – turning your sleek white shirt into a tie-dyed beauty. Once you’ve finished the race, join your fellow runners for a day-long dance party and color throw! Grab some artsy friends and sign up for a Color Run this summer.
Walk or run, the Color Run 5K is great for all ages.
The Zombie Enthusiast
Can’t get enough zombie? Walk, creep or crawl through Traverse City’s 5th Annual Zombie Run this fall! A Halloween tradition, the Zombie Run brings costumed athletes together for a 5K walk or run hosted by a local brewery. Bonus: being chased by zombies is an excellent motivator. So don your best zombie garb, grab a few of your undead friends, and head north for some creepy race day fun.
