The Barbarian Challenge pits racers against the elements, in the classical sense. In the airy outdoors, runners plunge into icy creek beds, crawl through mud pits, and conquer various man made obstacles in their quest to secure the fastest running time, or the simple bragging rights that come with finishing at all. The course covers 4.5 miles and many man-made obstacles, and the top finisher in men's and women's categories earns a replica of Conan the Barbarian's sword.
