Event Details

           

 

Anyone who has run on busy city streets knows that it’s a challenge in itself. Urban RAID takes it to the next level by capturing the best of city landscapes and urban elements and incorporating them into an innovative and challenging course. The city is your course in Urban RAID.

At 3.1 miles in distance at each race course, you’ll be challenged to run, crawl, jump, climb, and scramble through sand or city streets. Our immense constructed obstacles are designed to test your strength, agility, balance, and core, while keeping you safe and injury free. We want you to cross that finish line exhausted and ecstatic, with your friends and family cheering you on. And we want you to celebrate your accomplishment by joining your fellow athletes and fans at the post-race party, complete with recovery stations, sponsor booths, food, and beer!
