Teams of two will compete for top spots in each of the divisions. In order to get between locations in the time allotted for the event, you will need a bike. Expect the distance to be part of the challenge and be sure to obey all traffic laws. View the full event rules below.
During the race, your team will need to overcome many obstacles. Most obstacles will be planned by our committee and they will challenge your mind or body. Maybe both. However, there are things, like the weather, that we cannot control so be sure to come prepared.

We'd recommend reading our lists below first, but if you still have questions about the race or registration, visit our FAQs page.
Dress for an athletic event. We recommend running shoes, wicking type clothing, and be ready to sweat. There WILL be pool/water challenges, and you are required to wear/bring appropriate attire. A swimsuit or bike shorts/sports bra are acceptable for pool attire. Street shorts and t-shirts are not acceptable to enter the pool challenges.
This year we've moved the date to September 7th. Summer vacations will be over and students will be back in town, and it's NOT a ND game weekend (we triple checked!). So tell all those friends that haven't been able to participate before, that now they can
The Charles Black Community Center will be our start/finish line this year. We're excited to explore more of the west side of South Bend!
We're taking away the challenge time limit. This opens up a wide range of new things we can do. Due to this, challenges will be weighted based on estimated challenge completion time.
With this year's theme of "Brains vs Brawn", we will introduce more "brainy" challenges. So be ready to flex your body and mind muscles!
This year will feature the brand new "Cool Down Lounge" from 12pm - 1pm! Instead of our regular after party, we will be relaxing in this new environment where you'll be able to grab a snack, relax, rejuvenate, recuperate and review all the highlights of the day with fellow racers. More details will be announced closer to race day.
