Announcing the Third Annual Run the Gauntlet 5K Obstacle Course Race! Over 600 participants are expected at Denali’s Third Annual 5K Run the Gauntlet race Sunday, September 28, 2014 at Hammonasset Beach State Beach Park in Madison, CT. Participants will attempt to conquer 14 obstacles, including cargo net crawls, high walls, tire crossings, planks and a water run, all while running 3.1 miles along the Hammonasset Beach shore.
Due to the event’s popularity we will be having three heats of runners going off at 9AM, 10AM, and 11AM. After the race participants and spectators can enjoy a post-race beach party with food from Old World Pizza Truck, an awards ceremony, and live music. All finishers over 21 receive two free beers from Thimble Island Brewing Company. The first 600 registered runners receive a technical running shirt.
Get your friends and form a team for our Team Challenge. Team categories include Family, Corporate, CrossFit, and Open divisions. Teams must have a minimum of 3 runners who all run in the same heat. For more information about Denali Run the Gauntlet, please visit www.gauntletraces.com.
