Sometimes stars ditch those private personal training sessions to hit the pavement with the people. Follow in their famous footsteps by signing up for one of these races that stars have previously participated in when it comes to your area or when you’re near it.
The EIF in EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women stands for the Entertainment Industry Foundation, one of Hollywood’s hugest charities championing a wide variety of worthy causes. Events are held in both Los Angeles and New York City every May and bring out many celebrity supporters, with Emma Stone, Jessica Alba, and Halle Berry being just a few of the repeat racers over the years.

Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian‘s competitive sides came out when the sisters trained for and completed the Mud Factor race in April 2014 in San Bernadino, California. The 5K course incorporated several obstacles that “Keeks & Kokes” completed, including the giant Slip N’ Slide into a giant puddle of mud.

This race presents itself as a chance to “run with the stars,” and for the most part, that means the stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame since the course starts and finishes in front of the Kodak Theater on Hollywood Boulevard. Nevertheless, living, breathing stars have been known to participate, too — like New Kid on the Block‘s Joey McIntyre, who ran the Hollywood Half in April 2014 in preparation for his second Boston Marathon a couple weeks later.
