    That sounds like fun.

    It is fun to listen for the screams when someone gets 21.

    I ran in a race where they separated the men and women. The women had a draw and the winner had to beat the fastest man for a set of michelon tires. 8k and women get 10 min head start.

      That's the best...winning something you can actually use.

            I  guess as you get more bodacious, you begin to lose more brain cells, because there is a limit to how much magnificence your body can house

                    I got a kick out of the predict your time race we had in our small town last fall to benefit a food pantry.  Submit predicted finish time when you register, no timing devices allowed during the race, finish line clock turned away so you can't see it as you're finishing.  Prizes of home made baked goods were all based on closest to predicted time rather than place.

                        Random drawing among the youth entrants to win a ride to school on a firetruck ...

                         

                        OMG - the ride in the firetruck sounds incredible.  Could you do that? I would be there.  I would so be there and my kids would enter the 5k.

                          The Nihilist Dash - when the gun goes, everyone thinks, "fuck it. what's the point?" and proceed to wander off aimlessly.

                          I bought my nephew an elephant for his room. He said, "Thanks". I said, "Don't mention it".

                            I saw one like this called "Devil takes the hind man." There was a guy dressed in a devil costume that would tag the runner in last place to have them exit the track...

                             

                            I think it would work good with 15 or 20 people, but with 100+ that would be chaos... Maybe in a good way. Not sure how you'd handle lapped runners...

                            Just a dude.

                              On Pi Day (March 14th) there is a run here where they put a course out that is 3.14 miles and the goal is to get as close to 31:40 as possible.

                               

                              In college we had the watermelon run, which was a guess your time for 2 miles and the closest won. The prizes were mostly watermelons...

                               

                              Relay races are kinda cool. Our high school cross country team did the Dirty Dusty Damn Hot Relay, a 15k run with 3 runners each running a 5k lap in August. We also did the Race around Tahoe as a team, which was 72 miles at 6300+ elevation.

                               

                              I find around here the more popular races are the ones that have been around for a while. It usually takes a few years to build momentum.

                               

                              Good Luck...

                                Prizes are pies, of course.

                                Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.
