It's fun to feel a little scared every once in a while, which is why people watch horror movies or hire an accountant who works out of an old sedan. Feel a rush with this Groupon.

Racers make their way through their choice of either a 3.1- or 6.2-mile outdoor course with 24 obstacles. Starting at 9:30 a.m., treks begin in waves every 30 minutes. Customers desiring a more competitive race can sign up for the competitive 10k, which starts at 9 a.m., for an additional $5 per person. Participants receive a T-shirt to commemorate the event, a medal of honor on completion, and get to celebrate with other runners during a post-race party. During the 10 a.m. wave, racers are encouraged to don their favorite patriotic garb.
The Patriot Games
Male and female competitors climb over rope walls, splash through mud pits, sneak under barbwire, and climb over oversized tires in a goodwill 5K and 10K race. Runners of all skill levels gather at the start dressed however they like, sprinting through the course shirtless or even in mesh smoking jackets. During the 10 a.m. wave, racers are encouraged to don their favorite patriotic garb. Everyone competes at their own pace, and all participants receive a Medal of Honor to hang round their neck upon completion.
Past events have attracted up to 2,100 racers, all of whom are treated to a post-race, beer-filled celebration with live music from local bands. Photographers document the entire event, capturing a portfolio of epic action shots and barbaric yawps. Water stations are peppered throughout the course, and a gear check allows racers to safely stow belongings with a watchful staff member.
