Join us for the third annual GC Gauntlet obstacle 5k event! This event is the ultimate test of courage and strength. Push your physical limits with 3.1 miles in and along the Arkansas River bed while jumping, climbing, crawling, and of course, running through a variety of obstacles! Finish strong after battling through the final obstacle, the Mud Pit! All finishers recieve a finishers medal.

This is one of the toughest 5k's in Western Kansas, and you don't want to miss it! The Gauntlet is held in conjucntion with the Southwest Riverless Festival and Balloon Classic. Come for the race, and stick around for a concert, car show, hot air balloon glow/launch, a bbq cook off, and much, much more!
