October is a great month for outdoor sports in Maryland, a time when the crisp air and fall foliage make running or cycling especially enjoyable. Nonprofits have recognized the appeal of this season and created many events that give athletes a chance to swim, bike, run, walk or even kayak for a good cause. Many races and organized bicycle rides raise money specifically for programs like scholarships and health care initiatives. Sometimes the events are for more serious athletes - triathlons and competitive running races - and sometimes they're aimed at people of all levels of fitness who just want to have fun, such as the Run for Your Lives zombie run Saturday (at Wicomico Motorsports Park in Charlotte Hall)
