This year’s event promises to be bigger than ever with more participants and more challenges.
Race as an individual or form a five-person squad and walk, run, climb or crawl through mud pits, climbing stations and other obstacles built by local members of the Army, Navy, ROTC, Fire Stations, Davis-Monthan AFB and SWAT. The military-style 5K Obstacle Course runs along the Rillito River dirt trail and the adjacent wash at Fenton Park. Prizes will be awarded to the Top Male, Top Female and Top Squad.
All participants with early registration will receive a custom bib with their name or squad name, participant t-shirt and water bottle. All finishers will be tagged with the 2013 Challenge dog tag too!

All fitness levels welcome. All proceeds support Beat Cancer Boot Camp, a local non- profit exercise and support group for cancer patients, cancer survivors and anyone whose life is affected by cancer.
I watched this grueling and fun obstacle challenge for the first time last year, and was impressed with the participants especially the cancer survivors, and all the volunteers that help make this event possible. Last year about 750 people entered and click here for some fantastic photos taken by Dave Johnson.
