If you love getting out and getting active, there’s a great chance that you’ve run several 5Ks in the past. It’s a great way to get in shape, and they are often for a good cause. However, you may want to switch things up the next time you decide to run. Why not go for a shorter – and more exciting – course at the Big Obstacle 3K? This is going to be a huge hit this summer, and kids and adults alike will love taking on this 1.8-mile obstacle course. Plus, when you know it’s all for a good cause, it’s hard not to have a fun time.
This sounds like a super-fun activity, right? Well, you’ll want to mark your calendar as soon as possible if you plan on attending. The Big Obstacle 3K will be at Fairview Park on July 20, 2019 and will begin at 9 a.m., lasting until noon. Plus, it’s professionally timed, so you get to see how fast you finish. Make sure you register as soon as possible so you can get a t-shirt from the event. It costs $35 to participate, and kids ages 5 to 11 can participate in the kids’ course for $12.
What to Expect
Even if you run frequently, you should expect something a little bit different from this race. First of all, it’s only 1.8 miles, which is probably a lot shorter than other courses you’ve run. But there’s a catch: You’ll have to go through several obstacles to get to the finish line. There are tunnels, climbing walls, endurance challenges, and more that really make it an exciting race to run. At the very end, you get to slide across the finish line on a slip-n-slide! How much better can it get?

Do Your Part
You love your community, which probably means that you always want to go above and beyond to make sure you are doing your part. This race is a great way to do just that because the proceeds go toward United Way. United Way is an amazing organization that helps low-income and struggling families in the community get the help they need. Whether that’s helping with food or financial stability, this organization does incredible work, and you’ll love being a part of it all.
So, what are you waiting for? Register as soon as possible, and get ready for the best race ever!
