About This Activity

A filthy and formidable 5k obstacle course race for insane athletes and daring beginners benefiting the students and surrounding community of Caprock Academy.

Is this race for hard-core athletes and competitors only?
    NO WAY!  We want athletes of all levels to have fun at The Gauntlet.  The goal is to push yourself and bring out the courage you didn't even know you had.  Some athletes will race through in record time; others will do it at their own comfortable and safe pace.  Most of all, we want you to have fun!
