You could spend your Saturday running errands or binge-watching TV, but wouldn’t it be more fun to do something absolutely insane with your friends?! Picture this:  You arrive at Alameda County Fairgrounds with a carload of your most adventurous friends.  As you step out you notice the people around you admiring your group’s coordinated … MORE

    This was my first race and it was much better than I expected. I wasn’t
    sure about how difficult it would be, but there were only a couple obstacles that were a little bit of a challenge; one being the teeter totter. That was simply because it was extremely slippery from all the mud which made it difficult to balance. The scenery was basically dead grass because it was at the fairgrounds. Overall I enjoyed the race and plan to do many more.

    Overall it was a fun race! I really liked that there were a variety of obstacles that ranged in difficulty. This was my second time running this race, and I had a lot of fun running the course with my teammates.

    Running late I thought we would miss our wave, but since packet pick up was so quick, and bag check being fast and efficient we were even able to use the restroom and make to it to start line just in time. Obstacles are fun and very doable for almost all fitness levels. Only a few obstacles I would categorize as tough. One being “the ringer” which is a series of Olympic rings you must swing across…pit of water underneath you. The shirts and medals are good quality. I injured my leg on an obstacle… I’ll be okay. As far as scenery, it’s on the fair grounds so you don’t see much that you would call breath taking or photo opportunity time. With that said , it’s also flat so you don’t have the inclines you have with Spartan races. That is up to the participant to decide if that’s a pro or con. It didn’t seem like 25 obstacles but when we went over the obstacles in our head… it did add up to 25. The fun we had, is probably why the obstacles and 3 miles flew by. I did miss that there was “no speed trap” obstacle this year.

    The obstacles are challenging while still being very fun. The amount of obstacles in such a short distance is outstanding. The cost is much better than other races out there. Best value I know of.
