Running a race is one of the great human challenges, alongside raising a child and peeling a ripe mango without basically ruining it. Go the distance with this Groupon.
- $59 for entry for one in The Inferno (up to a $139 value)
The 13.1-mile obstacle race takes place on Saturday, August 31. Participants—who must be 18 or older—get a commemorative t-shirt, a custom finisher's medal, entry into the after party, and one beer (for participants 21 and older). Heats of up to 125 people begin at 8 a.m. and continue every half-hour until 2 p.m. The fastest competitors typically finish the race in about two-and-a-half hours. Friends and family of competitors can watch for free, though parking is not included and they must sign a waiver.
The Freeze Obstacle Race
The designers of The Freeze Obstacle Race don't let icy weather get in the way of an extreme endurance race. Participants kick off the 4–5-mile course regardless of the temperature, encountering over 25 obstacles such as hills, monkey bars, tire carries, and walls on their way across the rugged and often muddy Oregon terrain. The toughness of the race requires entrants to be in good shape, but competitors who think one loop is too easy can opt to complete two passes during a Double Loop Challenge, or as many laps as they can over the course of ten hours during the Max Out Challenge.
