THE TWIN CITIES MOST EXTREME 5K

Are you up for the challenge?

SATURDAY, AUGUST 22

PUSH YOURSELF BEYOND THE EXPECTED

5 kilometers. 18 obstacles. 1 kickass experience.

When it comes to extreme terrain, we wrote the book on it. From professional off-road truck racing, to snocross, and so much more, extreme is not only in our name, it’s who we are. With more than 400 acres of rolling terrain and thick woods at our disposal, our course building experts have developed an obstacle circuit that’s monstrous in scope, extreme in design and infused with a family fun atmosphere that our events are known for.

The ERX Extreme 5K will challenge and reward participants of all ages and skill levels. Featuring 18 obstacles, professional timing, a dedicated kidz zone, and an after-party.
