  • Publicis Hawkeye (Urbanathlon)
    Sponsored by Men's Health, the coed Urbanathlon race and festival is a fitting representation of the magazine's "work hard, play hard" mentality. Indeed, the courses are hard work. Whether competitors run the 3- to 5-mile sprint course or the 10- to 11-mile classic course, occasional obstacles, such as monkey bars, stairs, tires, barricades, and stacks of unfinished tax returns, stand in their way. But don't be too intimidated—Urbanathlon has created 4- and 12-week training plans to help participants get in shape for the race. All the hard work will pay off though, thanks in part to a post-race party with DJ sets, refreshments, and swag from sponsors. Plus, competitors will have the opportunity to donate to the Challenged Athletes Foundation upon registration or with the $15 suggested donation for hair trims at the Paul Mitchell tent.

  • Men’s Health URBANATHLON
    Chicago, New York, and San Francisco—three of the biggest cities in the United States are the only cities fit for the sprawling brawl of the Men’s Health Urbanathlon. Like a sightseeing tour where heavy breathing is apropos, the Urbanathlon charters more than 10 miles of each city's terrain, embarking from landmarks such as Chicago's Soldier Field, New York's Citi Field, and San Francisco's AT&T Park. From there, dry bibs become perspiration sponges as contestants vie for the finish line. Along the way, a series of daunting obstacles—such as police and tire barricades, monkey bars, hurdles, and stair climbs—test racers' mettle, before a finish-line blowout sends them hurdling taxi cabs and scaling city buses. Deservedly exhausted contestants are then treated to a post-race party full of refreshing drinks and grub from local food trucks, DJs spinning dance music for wobbly legs, and free gifts from Men's Health's stable of sponsors.

  • Tandem Obstacle Race
    There are 11 challenges that stand between you and the finish line at Tandem Obstacle Race. Before gaining victory, competitors must scale walls up to 11 feet high, traverse wobbly platforms, and conquer one final challenge that won't even be revealed until the day of the event. You might think of them as daunting tasks, but luckily Tandem Obstacle Race doesn't expect anyone to go it alone. As a rule, the race requires each man or woman have a partner—someone who can carry them over a pit of water or hold a spinning log steady while the other person crosses. To accommodate everyone, the race splits into three difficulty levels: Challenge (hard), Fierce (harder), and Legend (hardest). Spectators may also attend for free, and they have a clear view of each of the obstacles.
