Fitness Friday: Summer Fun Runs

I have run lots of traditional road races: 5Ks to half marathons. With the exception of this one, they are always what you expect. This summer I am trying something new and signed up for a couple of fun runs.

The LoziLu is a women's only 5K trail run with exciting obstacles and a fun post-race party. Now even though it's a "mud run" this event is all about the girlie-girl in all of us.
"Beyond the perfect mud run and a whole heap of fun, your registration provides you a super sweet stainless steel LoziLu water bottle, a stylish LoziLu Sweaty Band, fabulous fun, snacks, beverages, an adult beverage*, bonding with the girls, stickers, free event photos, and a DJ hosted party to shake your groove thang. LoziLu is kind of a sweet deal for all day entertainment."
I signed up to run this race with a team of NH bloggers led by Heather who aptly named us Team Bad Ass Blogger Babes! I really hope we win the largest team award because I hear the prize is WINE!

After covering myself in mud, I'm going to cover myself in color. Color Me Rad is 5K event in which your white shirt becomes a canvas of color as you are bombed with blue, green, pink, purple, and yellow corn starch.
At the finish line you'll be greeted by "the royal rumble of color. Every 15 – 20 minutes everyone will grab handfuls of color and pummel each other until you're black and blue (from corn starch – no real bruising will occur). There will be music, food, and sponsors welcoming you across the finish line with open arms."
I'm running this as part of Team FitFluential and even though I have a feeling there's not going to be a huge amount of actual running going on, I think it's going to be a crazy fun run!

Don't forget to use PROMO code CCAMB8 when you register for ZOOMA Cape Cod. It gets you $10 off the half or $5 off the 10K. There is a price increase tomorrow.

What new things are you planning this summer?  


  1. seriously these runs look like sooo much fun!!!

  2. I am doing a local color run too this summer and like you I am pretty sure it will be more fun then running! :)

    1. I've seen so many great pictures. I can't wait!

  3. That looks like fun! I love trail running and the 5k distance is a great one! It's just long enough to sweat but not too long!

  4. I can't wait to do the Color Me Rad run! I'm not really looking forward to the drive down though... :( Early morning should eliminate some of the traffic at least!

  5. I'm doing a mud run and the Color run also. I'm so excited for both!

  6. Awesome! That's gonna be so much fun! I'm hoping to do the Color run next spring when it comes here. I just signed up for a tri... yikes!!

  7. These runs look awesome, can't wait to read all about them!

  8. Have a super duper race!!!! I see fantastic-ness in your future! That and lots of powdered color all over the place. Either way, photos will be awesome!

  9. They sound awesome!!!! Enjoy. :)

  10. Color run, Warrior Dash, Color me Rad...road races are getting all sorts of crazy. LOL

    Good luck with the race! I hope there will be lots of photos.

  11. Both sound like a lot of fun! Can't wait to hear how it goes :)

  12. This will be my first year of running fun runs. A Color Me Rad in July and a mud run in Aug. I'd also like to run a Warrior Dash. Depending on how the Color Me Rad goes I may run a Color Run in Oct. Like you said probably not a lot of running but it will be fun! A nice break from traditional races and training.

  13. I can't wait to hear about the color runs!! We have one scheduled here in December that's on my tentative schedule :)
