The 5K Challenge race site consists of rolling hills and farmland nestled between the Green Mountains of Vermont and the Hudson River in southern Washington County, New York and is less than 40 minutes from Albany, Saratoga, Glens Falls and Bennington, Vermont. The flourishing countryside property encompasses 230 acres of active farmland and woodlands with several streams and ponds scattered throughout.
The challenge: To negotiate and conquer the natural terrain and obstacles set up on the year-round course constructed at the farm.
The course involves five kilometers of rough terrain with a dozen military inspired obstacles including water crossings, mud trenches, cargo nets and much, much more scattered throughout.
Note: the 10k course consists of the 5k plus a whole other course (it is not two loops of the 5k).
