On Saturday, August 2, at Cownie Sports Complex, racers compete against each other—and their own bodies—to surmount obstacles. Adults take on 4–5 miles, while kids run about 1 mile. The first just-for-fun heat begins at 10 a.m., and the Kidz heat is at 1 p.m. Each participant receives an official T-shirt, tag, and sticker. At the post-race party, which features food and music, participants aged 21 or older also receive a free beer.

Held at rugged landscapes throughout the country, HARD CHARGE's races drench participants in mud, water, and sweat as they test their own strength, agility, and stamina against a series of tough obstacles. From the kickoff of the first heat, individuals and co-ed teams launch off to storm 30 challenges, which include crossing swift streams with no bridge but a single rope, navigating forests of hanging tires, scaling towers of hay bales and sand, and clambering over vertical cargo nets.

Competitors are separated into two levels, Charge for Fun and Charge for Glory. In the former level, racers navigate the course at their own pace, while the latter, which involves an additional $20 fee, chargers athletes to go all-out for a chance to appear in HARD CHARGE's upcoming televised series. In these heats, marshals watch over each obstacle, ensuring competitors successfully complete it without the help of guardian angels. However they complete the test, all participants gather to celebrate their personal achievement at a post-race party featuring music, food, and complimentary beer.
