But Not With Your Car, OK?

Slapstick will always be funny whether it’s the Three Stooges pounding each other’s faces into hamburger meat or some schlub on a security camera falling into a mall fountain because they don’t possess the motor skills one needs to look at a cell phone and walk safely at the same time. Believe it or not, slapstick humor isn’t just a cheap and easy way to get a laugh. It’s also a great cardio workout and stamina-building exercise. Do both during the Hit and Run 5K, which has a tacky name and a huge obstacle course. There are walls, bridges, giant balls and swinging cylinders designed to do one thing: put you on the ground as quickly as possible so your friends can laugh at your clumsy ass shortly before joining you. The fun starts at 9 a.m. Saturday at River Legacy Park (703 N.W. Green Oaks Blvd., Arlington). Registration is $40 at hitandrun5k.com.
