About Conquer the Gauntlet
At Conquer the Gauntlet, twenty-five obstacles are whetstones against which racers sharpen their resolve. The 4-mile course will challenge their speed, power, endurance, and resolve as the runners hurl themselves over walls, scale inclines with ropes, and clamber over a sea of cargo nets. Should entrants lose their footing or take an errant step, a wet and watery bath of mud waits beneath. The race starts early in the morning, and each wave of approximately 100 runners pounds across the ground with electronic chips tracking their times. While there are awards for winners in each age category, individual heats are not age specific, allowing participants the chance to compete on equal footing with hardened marathon veterans and uppity toddlers with steel spikes on their rattles.
