Most 5Ks and mud runs cater to adults. Adrenaline Run is not most 5Ks and mud runs. The just-for-teens event pits participants against natural and human-made obstacles, challenging them with rocky terrain, waterways, and homework. Some heats are timed, but youths uninterested in stats or clocks in general can join in untimed runs. After the challenging scramble concludes, racers head to the after-party for food, live music, and costume contests awarding the Most Creative and Most School Spirited ensembles. Both participants and spectators can take a gentler jaunt through a bounce-house course, or sit back and listen to performances while sharing mud-splattered stories.
