FWIW, I know a local race director who put on the first local edition of the Color Run 5K last year and found it to be such a headache (high deposit, lack of volunteers, extensive cleanup) that she would not put on the race again.  Things like this and the Warrior/Mud runs are likely flashes-in-the-pan, I would not be surprised if they failed to continue to exist in a decade or two, after almost all of the 'hey, I want to try that once' crowd has done it and the novelty has worn off.

When I saw the thread's title, I figured it might be about a recent RT article on heat affecting race cancellations, which is quite interesting and makes me glad to be into half-marathons only slightly more than marathons interest me.  8)
