5K Challege and 10K
Details

DISCLAIMER:

Snowflakes...this isn't for you...

This isn't the cushy road race that  you're used to. 

There is no official timing...there are no assigned corrals...

there are no wave starts. 

To win...you gotta be at the front of the pack at the start line...

when the cannon goes off.

you have to  go the distance, finish all the obstacles (on the 5K Challenge course)

and cross the finish line first...there's no points for 2nd place.

  Whining is not allowed. 

So before you consider signing up for this event, 

you really need to ask yourself...

"Am I tough enough?"

 

 

 

 

These race routes consist of a mixed surface of paved road way and the sands of Ocean View Beach....yes..you read that correctly... the beach...on the sand
