CLASH15 to save 15% on 4 mile run

Firefighters and police officers sign up as individuals or teams to compete for the bragging rights of the fastest department.

After the race we will have a tug of war tournament.  Starts at 12:30pm.  So if there is a certain department you want to dunk into a pool of mud make sure they sign up. For those wanting to participate just in the tug of war tournament, there is no spectator fee.  We will also be having a kids race at 12:00.  Tickets can be bought onsite for $15.

Kids Course (ages 4-13): $15.00 per child (finisher medal included, t-shirt not included)

Kids (ages 6-13) may run the kids course and main course (4 Miles only) at no extra charge.  On main course must be accompanied by parent.

Ages 14-17: t-shirt and finisher medal included.
.                       $30 to run the 4 mile course



Dirt Runner is about great competition and amazing post race atmosphere. Our trails utilize the best natural landscape around Chicago, no if's, and's or but's about it!. You can expect 4 miles of incredible terrain, 30+ tough obstacles and a total elevation change of over 1200 ft.

As if that wasn't enough, nobody can beat our festival area activities! Test your balance and speed on our Ninja Warrior/Wipeout style course.   Show off your strength on the Samson ladder, and pegboard climb. We also got slacklines, volleyball/badmington nets, bean bags, and more.

Now it wouldn't be an obstacle race without plenty of food and beer. If what you crave isn't on our menu, bring your own grill and start grilling! You can set up your own picnic right in our festival area. In fact, if your group wants to camp out for the night and run the course again on Sunday morning for free, we'll stay and camp out with you!

Our race is designed to boost total physical fitness, improve your balance, endurance and agility.

For the best experience, create a team with your friends and compete for prizes. Fitness clubs, sport teams, organizations and companies are also encouraged to race.
