Route description

The Playground: The course opens at 9 a.m. but you’ll select a specific time to run when you buy your tickets. If you’re a late sleeper, that means you can wake up at noon, run at 1:45 p.m., and then party the rest of the day!

The Festival: The 5,000-person party starts at 8:30 a.m. with a DJ on the main stage, booths giving away freebies, all kinds of interactive games (mechanical bulls, dance-offs, stein-hoisting, pie-eating), and tasty food and beer to keep you fueled all day. The best part? The festival and games are completely FREE, no ticket required, so even your least adventurous friends can join the party!

ID & Waiver:

If you’re 18 and over*, you need to bring a photo ID to verify your age, but you DO NOT need to bring a copy of your signed waiver. You’ll sign the waiver at the Check-In Tent before you run. If you’re under 18*, you need to bring a copy of the waiver located on the event page signed by your parent or legal guardian. If you forget it, your parent can still sign a waiver for you at the race.

Race Bib:

Each racer gets a race bib which must be worn on the front of his/her body (shirt or shorts). The bib serves three purposes: (1) It lets our security know that you’re a paid runner, (2) you can enter your bib number into the designated website after the race to find any pictures and download for FREE, and (3) items at the bag check are organized by bib number, so you must have it in order to retrieve your bags. We do not keep records of who gets which bib, so be sure to have your number in order to retrieve your bags at the bag check and find your photos.


All spectators can come enjoy the festivities and watch the race free of charge.

Frequently asked questions
Will there be water stations?
There will be three water stations for participants, two on the course and one at the finish line. There will also be oranges and bananas at the finish to help you replenish some energy before hitting the festival! Bottled water will be available for sale for spectators, but you can also bring your own water. However, no outside alcoholic beverages or coolers are allowed into the venue.
Do I have to complete all obstacles?
Assess each obstacle as you approach to determine whether your fitness level will allow you to safely complete it. Circumvent any obstacle that you feel is too difficult, but remember that doing so will disqualify you from winning the race if you’re in the 9 a.m. Elite Heat.
Can I change my start time?
If you have booked through Let's Do This, you can change your start time by emailing [email protected]
What if the weather is bad?
If there is severe weather that prevents the event from being held at all on Saturday, it will be moved to Sunday. If severe weather persists on Sunday, it will be moved to a later weekend date.
