A charitable organization gets you active
That's why, whether you're into marathons or just strolling down the beach, we've got a soft spot for Shorewalkers.
A non-profit dedicated to promoting and preserving New York and New Jersey's shorelines, Shorewalkers has a calendar full of fun trail walks that don't require you to run or dodge a flaming barrel full of nails.
Our favorite is their Great Saunter, an event with an awesome title that is only exceeded by its tagline: "See Manhattan at 3 miles per hour!" It's an epic 32-mile stroll around Manhattan's coastline held every May.
If this all sounds too lame for you and you'd rather get your kicks bungee jumping out of a helicopter flown by an epileptic pilot, you can join up and donate to the Shorewalkers without sauntering a single inch.
Shorewalkers; Memberships start at $20
