GRIT 'N WIT - New England's First Mental and Physical Obstacle Course!
Saturday, August 23, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM (EDT)
Other obstacle course races test you physically,
but that’s only half the challenge of Grit ‘N Wit.
Grit ‘N Wit is not your typical obstacle course. Here, tough isn't enough. Mental challenges and mind puzzles are spaced throughout the course. Quick wit is rewarded with shorter walls to climb and fewer hurdles to overcome.
But, don't be fooled. WIth three plus miles of obstacles, you'll still need your Wheaties.
Bring it on!
18 Mental & Physical Obstacles Over 3 Miles!
In addition to providing individual competitors and teams with a fun and uniquely challenging experience, Grit 'N Wit aims to highlight underutilized areas and support the local community. Our inaugural event will be held August 23rd at Keney Park in Hartford, one of the largest parks in New England. Entertainment will be provided by Ms. Kim and B.Davis of 89.9 WQTQ FM, which broadcasts locally from the New Thomas Snell Weaver High School.
Grit 'N Wit is proud to support the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation (FOJ), committed to improving the quality of life for children and families battling pediatric brain tumors and raising awareness about the disease. A portion of proceeds will benefit FOJ, which pairs children and families with college and high school athletic teams to provide love, support, and friendship.

Dunk Your Kicks facilitates the collection of used sneakers by Rethink Nation, an international recycler who sells those sneakers to exporters/distributors in emerging markets as part of the Affordable Clothing Market.
