Hit and Run 5K, The Humongous Obstacle Race, Hits Vegas March 1

Published on Tue, Jan 21, 2014 (5:18 p.m.)

Las Vegas, NV – January 13, 2014 - Hit and Run 5K™- a new 5K fun-run comprised of mechanical obstacles, giant inflatables, dodge ball cannons, foam machines and more—will visit Las Vegas for the first time on March 1, 2014 as part of the race’s debut North American tour. The obstacle race will take place at Sam Boyd Stadium.

Vegas is the second stop of the race’s 2014 national tour. After Hit and Run 5K’s YouTube video went viral last year, people from all over the world have requested that the race schedule events in their cities. The game show-inspired obstacle run is working to fulfill those requests, with 17 races planned for 2014, six of which are now open for registration.

Registration is open for the Las Vegas race, which brings with it eight giant obstacles, custom designed for a new experience unlike any other adventure race.

“It would appear that obstacle races these days are out to kill people. Hit and Run 5K is out to make them laugh, perhaps until it hurts,” said Dusty Hulet, marketing director at Hit and Run 5K.

With no winners or official times, Hit and Run 5K celebrates camaraderie, not competition. The race focuses on friends and family laughing together as they confront larger-than-life obstacles, like the “Wobble Walk,” “Slippery Slopes,” and the “Whacking Wall.”

Race participants can sign up at hitandrun5k.com/events/las-vegas. For more information “like” Hit and Run 5K on Facebook, and visit hitandrun5k.com.
