The Rocket Gauntlet is a speed obstacle course designed to provide a fun-filled experience for both the novice just looking to get out and have a good time, as well as the hardcore competitor who is looking to set a personal best. The course will test both your cardiovascular and muscular endurance by taking you through 3 distinct stages designed to push you to the max.
The first stage will test your ability to perform a speed run through a series of 10-12 obstacles designed to elevate your heart rate and get your blood pumping. The second stage takes you through the Cardinal Greenways recreational trail on a 5K adventure. This is a paved trail (street or running shoes are required) with a scenic view, but don’t be fooled by its beauty. It is a long, winding run down the trail and back to the Rocket Gauntlet obstacles. After you return from your run, the third and final stage will test you to see what you are made of! Be ready to complete the remaining 15-17 obstacles while battling muscle fatigue from the previous two stages. Those who conquer the Rocket Gauntlet will receive a sweet finisher medal.
All obstacles are 100% visible to spectators from a central location. Bring your family and friends to watch your journey through the Rocket Gauntlet, and to celebrate your victory with you at the end.
The Rocket Gauntlet is designed for all ages and fitness levels. The registration fee is only $55 per race participant, and children 12 years of age and younger always run for free with a paying adult. The Rocket Gauntlet is sponsored by Troy Fishers House of Pain, where hard work ALWAYS pays off!
All race participants 13 years of age and older will receive a race finisher medal, race bib, and wrist bracelet. Participants who register by Wednesday, May 1st 2019 will also receive a complimentary race finisher t-shirt. A race finisher package for children 12 and under can be purchased for an additional fee online. Offical race start time is 9AM, but show up anytime before 11AM to start the race.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
