$30 for One Entry to the Extreme Rampage Race (a $60 Value)
Held at Kentucky Horse Park on Saturday, March 2, the Extreme Rampage race runs in 10 daytime heats every half-hour from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and three nighttime heats at 6:30 p.m., 7 p.m., and 7:30 p.m. The registration deadline is Tuesday, February 26.
As the starting gun sounds, the feet of as many as 200 competitors begin to churn through the muddy stretch of land that marks the beginning of Extreme Rampage’s treacherous course. Bookended by mud pits, the trail tests roughneck runners’ fitness and grit with more than 20 novel obstacles and enough distance—about 4 miles—to challenge the cardiovascular endurance of the world’s most chiseled shoelaces. Feats of uncommon valor unfold across the course, where entrants must scale a 20-foot cargo net, scamper over a field of more than 100 tires, and army crawl through a network of long tunnels. While many obstacles are of the labor-intensive variety, some impediments offer rewards, including a refreshing plunge down a slip ‘n’ slide or into a sinkhole filled with party favors.
