The race registration and headquarters will be a short (approximately 5 minute) walk from the parking location. There will be signs and a trail leading from the parking area through the woods to the event venue.

Venue

135 acres of rugged PA terrain with a mix of trails, streams and various vegetation. There will also be a festive atmosphere at the event headquarters with music, food and beverages available.

Event length

We prefer to think of things in terms of time and not distance. You will have a maximum of 3 hours in the Arena to complete as many challenges and obstacles as possible. The terrain will vary from trails to thick vegetation. The total distance you travel will greatly depend on how fast you go and how many challenges/obstacles you attempt.

Wave times

Start waves will be every 15 minutes. When you register, you can choose from one of three time buckets (Early Morning 9:00 am – 10:15 am, Late Morning 10:30 am – 11:45 am or Early Afternoon 12:00 noon – 1:15 pm).  You will get an email one week prior to the event with your exact wave start time. Please allow at least 30 – 45 minutes for the registration process. You will also need to be in the staging area 15 minutes prior to your wave start time where you will receive your map and course instructions.

Race day packet pickup

Please plan on arriving at the event at least 1 hour and 15 minutes prior to your wave start time to ensure enough time to register, pick up your race packet, go to bag check and be at the staging area 15 minutes prior to your wave start.

Required gear

A good pair of trail shoes and one watch per team.

Refreshments and grub

There will be water available at select locations in the Arena. We will have food and beverages for sale at the event headquarters.
