Sunday, October 1, 2023

9am @ Regional Park

This race is a 5k fun-run and features a myriad of obstacles, including (but not limited to) a foam tunnel, maze, tire run, pond crossing in a raft, wall climbs, weighted-sled pull, a creek crossing, over and under,  and of course a mud pit. 

Each year we make little changes to make the course more fun and challenging. This race is a perfect place for first-timers, and seasoned obstacle racers will be challenged throughout. 

We promise that you will get dirty, muddy and wet-but you will be smiling the entire time.
