RSC Challenge Run

Friday, May 12
Renaud Spirit Center

Race at 7 p.m. • Movie, Moana, at 8 p.m.

Are you looking for a family-friendly race with a twist? Ages 8 and older may sign up for this (approximately 5K) obstacle course race with a variety of obstacles—some will just be fun, some will be challenging and some will require athletic ability.

If an obstacle seems too difficult you can go around. However, those who successfully complete all obstacles will receive a race medal at the finish line.

Participants will be released in heats, which will be assigned based on registration date. Registration is limited to 300 competitors. Online registration ends at noon on May 11. T-shirt sizes are not guaranteed to those registered after April 27. T-shirts are not guaranteed to race day registrants at all, so please register early!  For more information call 636-474-2REC.

Please note:  A registration late fee of $5 is added for those who register April 28 – May 11. A $10 late fee will be charged for race day (May 12) registration. 

If this type of race isn’t for you, don’t worry! The evening includes live entertainment, refreshments and a free outdoor movie, Disney's Moana.
