An 'extremely' fun and challenging 6K course that will encompass roughly 20 obstacles as it winds its way along the Greenway in Greater Grand Forks.
We will have two aid stations (roughly one every mile) along the course.
$$$ for top honors, cash to top 3 on elite races!
The last river crossing should clean you up, but we'll have hoses available to rinse off with. With your wristband, you get a slice of pizza and a beer (21+, ID required) from Mike's Pizza, where you can hang out and watch people finish.
There are three river crossings. One has a rope that you can pull on to get to the other side. For one you'll be given some sort of flotation aid (probably truck tubes). One will involve good old fashioned swimming. If you are not confident in the water then you have a couple of options:
1) You can skip these obstacles. Boats will ferry you across on the first two and you can walk a bridge on the third one. If you are getting a boat ride you may have to wait a few minutes if there are lots of people skipping.
2) We will have a handful (a dozen or so) life jackets available at the first two crossings. you can pick up a life jacket and put it on and go for it. Again, we won't have an infinite supply of life jackets and so will be bringing them back across the river as we run out, so your may have to be a bit patient!
3) You can send up a battle cry to the Norse Gods, invoke the strenght of Thor, and just go for it anyway. In truth, we recommend this third option if your issue really only involves thinking that the river is yucky and are worried about the monster catfish that lurk beneath its murky surface, and not a lack of swimming confidence.
One final thought - you don't need to be a championship swimmer to succeed in these obstacles. But you should feel like you could jump off a boat in the middle of a lake, dog paddle around for a while, and not freak out.
About the third river crossing (the actual swim): If you are under 18, you must wear a lifejacket. If you are 18 and over, you can choose to wear a lifejacket. You may bring your own lifejacket and we will bring it to the river for you to use. YOU WILL BE MORE TIRED THAN YOU THINK, so lifejackets are a good idea.
