About This Activity

Riverside Military Academy's Corps of Cadets challenges you to Attack the Castle! 

Do you have what it takes to overrun and attack the castle? If so, come show what you have on April 25th. Our 5K is a Peachtree Qualifier race! 

Runners will have an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy absolutely beautiful views while running through roads, breezeways, and trails. But, this won't be your standard race! Each runner will be negotiating the obstacles and defenses established by the Castle's defense force!

Attention 10k runners - Expect the 10k route to be one of the toughest that you have run. Challenge yourself on our state of the art obstacle course! This route is characterized by elevation changes and rising/falling terrain mixing dirt, sand, rock, and trail throughout. The faint of heart need not apply. If you survive the siege you have much to be proud of!
