3 too-awesome-to-be-average 5K races

 
We absolutely heart 5K races. They're 3.1 miles of heart-pounding, adrenaline-boosting, confidence-building fun. But that doesn't mean we wouldn't mind a change-up from the same ol' start-to-finish racecourse. Sign yourself up for one of these too-awesome-to-be-average races.

 

The Happiest 5K on Earth

If you could have sworn you were storybook princess in another life, put the Disney Royal Family 5K at the top of your list. Running in sunny Florida around the Epcot Center as Mickey and gang are cheering you on–it doesn't get much better than that! Well, except maybe the Disney Princess Half Marathon where royal-highnesses-for-a-day run in tiaras and tutus for 13.1 enchanting miles. Not to rain on your fairytale finish line, but you need a guardian's signature to compete if you're under 18. Think of it this way: If you can wait for Prince Charming, you can wait–and train–for this magical half marathon.

 

Color Me Speedy

Running races is about getting dirty, not pretty, you say? Time to get rainbow-fied in the Color Run. At each kilometer-marker, volunteers shower you in five different colored powders: yellow, green, blue, purple and pink. The powder is totally safe and even edible, but it's not recommended for snacking since it's a chalky cal-fest (blegh). Don't want the all-out tie-dyed look on your shirt? There's a designated “low color lane” if you just want a touch of tint. Either way, deck yourself in white to start, and leave the slow-pokes in your multi-colored dust.

 

Zombie Nation

You've watched Dawn of the Dead and 28 Days Later so many times that you've perfected the hands-down best zombie apocalypse strategy. Oh, yeah? Put your running where your mouth is. Run for Your Lives is a 3.1 mile race and obstacle course where the walking–or running–dead chase after you. Don't worry–they won't nosh on your braaains, but they will try to snatch your “health flags” to convert you to undead. Racers who cross the finish line with at least one flag win prizes. The only downside? You need to be 14 to register. But, you can always watch the live-action zombie flick go down with the Apocalypse Pass 'til then. Better than a TV screen!
 
Can't make it to these races? Do some googling to find out what 5Ks are being held in your area. Then grab your crew and sign up!
