“It was so much fun,” said 2015 participant Kristine Noppe. “Some of the obstacles are really hard, but if you don’t want to do them, you can walk around them.”

Noppe explained that it’s more than what a typical 5k brings, you use your arms, legs, and “moving around a lot more than you would if you were if you were just running or walking.”

Runners who sign up by Friday, May 6 will pay $54.  The price gradually goes up every few weeks. It will cost at least $75 if you register the day of.
