Waves of runners leave every 3 minutes, starting at 9:00 am and ending at 11:30 am. Waves are limited to 20 people to prevent back-ups at obstacles. We encourage competitive runners (those participants who can run an average 5K in 24 minutes or less) to arrive early to run in one of the first waves. This race is not officially timed. It’s about completing the Tuff Enuf and supporting those participating with you.
You’ll be challenged and amused with a series of obstacles on a 3.1 mile course out and back. Watch out for the zombies! Click here to see the course map.
Your finish time will depend on your athletic ability. Top times may be in the low 20s. Most people finish within 30 to 60 minutes.
