City Challenge Race ups the competition standard in Hoboken

Looking for your next adventure? Obstacle races have become extremely popular. Races like Tough Mudder and Spartan take place weekly throughout the country.

City Challenge Race Obstacle Course Hoboken NJ - City Challenge RaceThis type of race brings new challenges to those who have the courage to compete in them and allows them to test their fortitude and stamina! It occurred to us to bring this type of event to Hoboken, New Jersey. Hoboken is a city full of fit and ready residents. What better place to host this race then with the backdrop of the New York City Skyline while you are competing through obstacles and running through the streets of Hoboken!

The mission of City Challenge is to enable you to have the most exciting day of your life… period. Our events are the ultimate opportunity to push your physical and mental limits, have a great time with friends and family, bond with co-workers, and just have an all around great time at our event!

City Challenge Obstacle Race will take place on October 5, 2013. Register for our race and you’ll get a chance to run our 4 mile course filled with over 15 obstacles designed to be fun and push you to your limits! Our course features obstacles constructed by an experienced crew of licensed contractors and engineers. These aren’t the pop-up kiddie obstacles you’ll see at other races. Some of the obstacles will include: walls to get over, water jugs to carry up stairs, 20 lb rocks to carry in sand, ropes to climb, monkey bars, and so many more. We will not have water, mud, electrocution, or fire at our race. 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. In short, City Challenge strikes the perfect balance between fun and physicality. It is a great way to test your athleticism. Participating in City Challenge will be the most fun ass-kicking of your life.
