1st heat starts at 10:00 am, last heat begins at 11:40 am Northampton High School Athletic Fields, Northampton, MA
This is a non-competitive obstacle-style 5k run in the style of a Warrior mud run or “Spartan” obstacle course. A clock will be running, but it is not an officially timed event. The course will begin on the Northampton High School athletic fields with a series of obstacles, participants will then head onto the trails along the Mill River, crossing the river, completing a loop on the wooded trails behind the Smith athletic fields, crossing the river again and returning back to the athletic fields for more obstacles and the finish. This fundraising event will provide support for all Northampton High School athletic teams (NABC). We welcome participants of all abilities, young and old. There will be a mini course - “Little Devil Fun Run” for children, 8 and under. The mini run is a single loop around the obstacles. Parents you can run with your child! Whether your goal is to experience an obstacle trail run for the 1st time or get down and dirty to support our teams, we guarantee you will have a blast. Six heats will be offered, 1st heat starts at 10:00 am and the last heat at 11:40. This is a truly unique event, so come out for some fun see how tough you are!
Wear your old running shoes, as you will get wet and dirty!
