This race is local and hardcore. Runners will traverse treacherous trails that wind through canyons, creek beds, and ravines; climbing walls, balance beams, seven creek crossings, a 100 foot water slide, rope climbs, and much more.
It's definitely hardcore, but it's also a lot of fun. If you start to fade, you can stop at the Jungle Lounge (situated about halfway through the course) and enjoy a free beverage or a shot of Jungle Juice.
Runners and spectators will be treated to a rocking after-party with a live DJ, beer garden, food and lots of sweet giveaways.
We are a LOCAL race. Every time a national race comes to the area, they take money out of the state. Not 5K The Hard Way.
We also offer a nice discount to current or former members of the military. Just enter USAROCKS as the coupon code when you check out (please bring your military ID to the event).
Feel the extreme sense of pride and power as you cross that finish line! And unlike lots of the other runs, we won’t charge you to park! And there is no cover charge to watch the festivities, enjoy the music, and join the party.
