$40 for Entry to a 5K Obstacle Race (Up to $85 Value)

The Gladiator Rock'n Run takes place on Saturday, September 7, at Steel City Raceway. For Groupon participants, the first wave of runners sets off at 11:30 a.m., with subsequent waves at noon and 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.

Parking is $10; please carpool and bring correct change.

Gladiator Rock'n Run

Presented in part by Dan Clark, also known as Nitro, of American Gladiator fame, the Gladiator Rock'n Run 5K 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. Five kilometers' worth of collective scampering awaits participants as muscle-testing obstacles impede progress to the finish line. 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. Gladiator Rock'n Run proceeds go toward a good cause, helping to raise money for TACA (Talk About Curing Autism), an organization that provides education, support, and information to aid parents in helping their children diagnosed with autism.
