You probably thought that all races were the same: runners line up at the start and run for an alotted distance. While races and marathons are an awesome way to test yourself and motivate you to run, they can be pretty bland for those of us who need a little more stimulation when we run. Thankfully, there are a ton of races that will get you running while also making things a lot more interesting.

PUNISHER ADVENTURE RACE

0295-01

With both 5K and 8K course options, the Punisher Adventure Race is the perfect opportunity to test your athleticism all while rolling around in the mud through challenging obstacles. There are obstacles including Speed Bumps, Rope Over Water, and the Mud Pit, that total 16 in all. You can even obtain a Sissy Pass if the obstacle is too hard for you, but that just means you must walk the plank instead.
