We are the fastest growing urban obstacle race series in the country! City Challenge Race transforms vibrant cities with breathtaking skylines into an exciting obstacle course with walls to get over, water jugs to carry, ropes to climb, cargo nets to climb, sand bags to carry, monkey bars and much more. This unique event is designed to get communities active, test your athleticism, fortitude, and get you out of your comfort zone. We inspire everyone to live a fit and healthy lifestyle. City Challenge Race also raises funds and awareness for local charities and breast cancer.

While races like Spartan, Tough Mudder, and Warrior Dash have become extremely popular it occurred to us to have our challengers run through city streets while attempting to conquer challenging obstacles that do not include water, mud, electrocution, or barbed wire. We are the clean obstacle race. Besides who really wants to risk getting electrocuted, suffer cuts by barbed wire, or ruin a great pair of shoes in disgusting dirty mud? And unlike the other guys, we hate to see back-ups on our courses so we limit each wave of runners to 200 racers to avoid overcrowding. Our race will feature energetic, fun, intense, and clean obstacles! Join active residents of vibrant cities and run through city streets with amazing backdrops of the hosting city’s skyline!

The mission of City Challenge is to enable you to have the most exciting day of your life…period. Our event provides the perfect platform for you to have a great time with friends and family, bond with co-workers, and just have an all-around great time at our event! We strike the perfect balance between fun and physicality. Participating in City Challenge Obstacle Race will be the most fun ass-kicking of your life

City Challenge

The event is organized in a way that makes it a great OCR if you want to go for time (open elite wave- no bottlenecking), or just finish casually with a bunch of friends. Always fun and as hard as you want to make it. The process for signing up as an individual or as a team is very seamless, and emails / questions for staff are answered promptly. On race day they have plenty of free refreshments pre and post event (protein shakes, fruit, water, sandwiches, various juices, etc). They go big on swag too. Unique obstacles, friendly event crew, and well organized. A product of sound race direction, strong sponsorship, and community engagement. This is how all races should be organized! Always a good time


This is a great race and very well organized. All the obstacles are manned by volunteers who encourage you and there are usually many giveaways and perks at the end from cool brands. I ran it solo last year but i'm actually looking at entering as a team with some colleagues. Should be fun!

Amazing Race!! Over 30 obstacles

Feb 17, 2016 by Bill Wellington

It was a 3 mile course but it was less running and more obstacles! Every 100 yards or so there was a challenge; monkey bars, POLICE CARS, cargo nets, sand bags, walls, and a bunch of other stuff! It was a lot of fun since we did not have to run so much. It was more obstacles then every done before! Can't wait to do it again!

My Favorite OCR

Feb 05, 2016 by Christina V

Best swag including a Challenger t-shirt. The race provides water on course, and afterwards bananas, protein drink, as other venues (sponsors) at the finish line. The free pre and post massages are great as you relax and get stretched out while listening as the DJ spins.

And the urban obstacles are the best! You get to jump over real cop cars!!

Loved it!

Feb 04, 2016 by Tom Belliard

City Challenge Race is the BEST urban race around. I have ran all their races in their different locations since they started.
I have never had so much fun and experience soo much energy in this epic race. I enjoy seeing the race grow in challengers each time. It's well worth the experience and friends made on the course. All the races have been well organized, easy transportation to get to location, great pre and after party, sweet medals and swag including a Challenger t-shirt. The race provides water on course, and afterwards bananas, protein drink, as other venues (sponsors) at the finish line. The free pre and post massages are great as you relax and get stretched out while listening as the DJ spins.
Their volunteers are great motivators on the course to push and encourage you through.
Photographers are out their catching you in action as you conquer your challenges.

The race was really sub par. The obstacles weren't very challenging and it seemed like an entry level OCR. In addition, it seemed like they just used "walls" as fillers. The medal and shirt were nice but this race was way overpriced for what it was.
