A fun run is a low-key group run that can be taken fast or slow as one sees fit usually on a known course with aid sometimes offered and possibly a donation/fee if not just help in organizing requested.

An adventure run is similar to a fun run, but more on the extreme end with typically no aid, difficult terrain, and considerable risk involved. Runners often need to run together in groups for safety purposes.
