Run and Ride Valleyfair
There can't be many races like this in the United States. Taking place before the gates open to the public, choose your distance and run this race hosted by Valleyfair Amusement Park in Shakopee, MN. There's a 5K and 1 Mile race on the Saturday, with Quarter and Half Marathon options the following day. And of course, the swag includes a ticket to the amusement park, so you can enjoy the rides once you've got your breath back!
