Race Preview: Hit and Run 5K – Have fun wiping out on this race in August

hit and run 5k Unlike Tung’s review, I am not a big fan of the game show American Ninja Warrior, nor can I claim to have ever seem it.  BUT!! I have seen "Wipeout" and I LOVE that show! My dream is to be on that show, with my brother or husband in some crazy costume :P. I probably wouldn't win..but that’s ok. The Hit and Run 5K looks like it's going to be a a blast. I think it will be a wipeout with out the fun commentary. It’s a 5K race with obstacles to dodge, weave  duck, dive, slip, trip, and laugh your way through. And while you are surviving running it, it will hit you, bounce you, splash you, flip you, flop you, and catapult you unlike any obstacle course you have competed in before. There will be water, and Water depth varies by obstacle, but is no deeper than 3 feet.

Packet Pick up: We have a free Packet Pickup event the day before the race. Race day packet pick up is $3. The time and place will be posted here as soon as we have them

 

This race looks awesome, but FYI: I feel it is my duty to warn you. As with any wave obstacle race, be prepared for some wait times between obstacles, especially later in the day.  Every obstacle course I have ever done has taken an hour to two hours to complete. So bring sunscreen and some patience and be ready to enjoy yourself J and have some fun!

    I’m so looking forward to this, even though it obviously won’t come close to a PR. (More like a PW? – but this is obviously not about running fast, but having fun. Although running fast is usually having fun, when you’re done running.)

  2. Me too. Obstacle courses are never for PRs, because you usually are waiting for an obstacle line unless you go around.
