Totally up to you!  We suggest trail running shoes/sneakers and clothes that you don’t care about….the crusty clothes from the last race….It’s up to you!

Is weather an issue?

We will race rain or shine, heat or snow…THUNDER! For us to not have a race, it must be a severe act of God such as a hurricane, forest fire, flood, etc.. So, if you get up and it is pouring rain, we are racing. If it is snowing, we are racing. If it is hot, we are racing. If it is cold, we are racing.  It only makes it more FUN!

IF for some reason we must cancel an event due to uncontrollable weather conditions, emails will go out and announcements will clearly be made here on the site and via social networking channels.

I hear there are water obstacles…I Can’t Swim?

No problem!  We encourage racers to try all obstacles.  But if you can’t, don’t stress, skip it.  No Burpees Required.
