$40 for Entry to 5K Obstacle Race (Up to $80 Value)

The Gladiator Rock'n Run takes place on Saturday, May 11, at Elgin B. Robertson Park, alongside Lake Ray Hubbard. The first wave of runners sets off at 8 a.m., with subsequent waves starting every 30 minutes until 12:30 p.m. The spectator-friendly course feeds into an after-race party, where exhausted runners forget about their burning calves and mud-splattered souls with beer, food, and ample live music.

Gladiator Rock'n Run

Presented in part by Dan Clark, also known as Nitro, of American Gladiator fame, the Gladiator Rock'n Run is a unique and challenging event, pairing an obstacle-heavy running course and an attempt at breaking the record for the world’s longest mud pit with post-race entertainment, including beer, music, and food. Those prepared to race must dance through tires, army-crawl through mud, and clamber up rope ladders to avoid barrels thrown by giant apes. The roar of spectators rings throughout the course as bystanders cheer on runners to inspire strong finishes.
