Our ancient ancestors were much better at running than we are, mainly because they spent most of their day being chased by mammoths. Get motivated with this Groupon.
- $49 for one Hell Run entry (up to an $85 value)
On Saturday, August 31, Hawthorne Race Track transforms into a 3.15-mile course studded with bunkers, climbing walls, tire piles, and lots and lots of mud pits. Each entrant gets a Hell Run t-shirt and a medal, to be worn at the free after-party while enjoying a complimentary beer (if over 21). Waves depart every half hour from 10 a.m. to noon.
The name is a little misleading. Yes, Hell Run entrants will be running, but they'll also be ducking through dark tunnels, sloshing through muddy swamps, tackling tire mountains, and clambering up walls. Among other feats. The obstacle-strewn run may be hellaciously taxing, but conquering it makes the after-party all the sweeter. Along with bragging rights, finishers get a medal, a beer, live music performances, and the opportunity to watch sweat make cool patterns on their mud-covered limbs.
