RUN, FOREST, RUN! DORY, CAN YOU HEAR ME? WHAT: New Year’s Eve Seashore Sleepover (montereybayaquarium.org) WHERE: Monterey Bay Aquarium WHY: An unforgettable night awaits when you and the kids join the slumber party at the Monterey Bay Aquarium—where you might even spot a certain aquatic heroine from an “under the sea” Disney flick. Arrive promptly so you and the kiddos get to participate in games, activities and a sundae bar. Pack your own sleeping bag and toothbrush and keep the young’ins close as kids ages 5–17 must stay with a parent at all times. Toast with sparkling cider as you celebrate the New Year. On New Year’s Day you get to indulge in a great breakfast at Cindy’s Waterfront Café before exploring the aquarium’s multiple attractions. You’ll also learn about the ocean’s hidden secrets from a naturalist. All participants must be age 5 and older. Cost: $125 per person general admission; $100 aquarium members. 90 South Bay Accent FROM TOP: GAMEFACE MEDIA; TYSON V. RININGER WHAT: A 12-plus mile run on New Year’s Eve Day (brazenracing.com) WHERE: Brazen Half Marathon WHY: If you need to be told, it’s probably not for you. If it is, start training now! Address your need for speed as you and hundreds of others slam the pavements in Fremont beginning at Quarry Lakes bright and early at 8:30 a.m. And if you consider an entire half marathon is tantamount to waterboarding torture, sign up for a 10k (6.2 miles) or a laid back 5k (3.1 miles). Race walking is okay, too. The course path is pancake-flat, and all participants receive a congratulatory medal and T-shirt. Age group awards go to the top three finishers. And FYI, all the races are professionally timed. On New Year’s Day you can also challenge yourself and run another half marathon day at Lake Chabot in Castro Valley. Cost: $49-$79 (depending on length of race).
