On Saturday, May 31, racers assemble at Coolray Field from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and set out to conquer more than a dozen fun and challenging urban-themed obstacles. Challenges range from running and leaping across rooftops to climbing over fences while cutting through backyards. Race day check-in begins at 8 a.m. Runners receive a t-shirt, custom race bib, and other race day swag; medals are given to the top finishers in both the men’s and women’s divisions. Participants are encouraged—though not required—to dress up as their favorite action heroes and compete in the online costume contest.
For this 5K race, a normally tame park or other venue is transformed into Mean Streets, an urban-themed obstacle course. In the Construction Zone, participants navigate over and under traffic barriers of different heights followed by a dive into a trash-filled dumpster. After bypassing the dumpster zone, runners test their stamina as cat burglars, scrambling through first-floor windows and trespassing through backyards. They barely touch ground before scaling upward once again on the Time-to-Climb portion of the course, which features a Jason Bourne-esque run across the rooftops. Finally, contestants climb out a window and onto the fire escape, swinging across an 8-foot ladder to reach the finish.
