About This Activity

Stubborn Girl 5K Fit Classic 2015 is the 2nd event in our Stubborn Warrior POWER UP series. Stubborn Girls are Warriors - Stubborn Warriors - Unique, Strong and Exceptional.  With that in mind Team Stubborn Warrior is celebrating women athletes with our inaugural all women Stubborn Girl event. The Fit Classic 5K is a challenge event with a twist.  Set on a 5K course, this event will start out running the warm up first 1/2 mile and then for the next 2 miles athletes will face 10 endurance stations plus 5 mystery challenges that participants will only find out as they negotiate the maxed out mile of endurance stations and then finally cool down by running the last remaining miles to the finish line.  So, go to our website and checkout the 10 challenge stations highlighted in our video, read the descriptions, watch members of Camp Gladiator demonstrate each exercise, and starting getting in shape for our Stubborn Girl Fit Classic 5K event. This is a non-timed challenge event designed to test your mettle not your speed. Power Up!

Stubborn Warrior is a North Carolina based company and part of our ongoing mission is to educate, inspire, and challenge athletes of all ages and abilities to achieve a healthy and fit lifestyle through participation in outdoor health and fitness endeavors. As part of our commitment to being socially responsible this event is in partnership with Wigs for Kids. A portion of the event proceeds up to 10% and 100% of any donations for this non-profit will go to support this worthy cause.

Stubborn Warrior POWER UP Series:

The Stubborn Warrior POWER UP Series is made up of several challenge events held throughout the 2015 year.  Most of the events will be timed. While some events will have 5K, 10K runs, others will be mixed medley challenge events. New to Stubborn Warrior will be our Stubborn Girl events specifically designed for our strong, determined, focused women athletes. Continue to check our Stubborn Warrior website for both Stubborn Warrior and Stubborn Girl events and turn your power on to POWER UP for a fun, purposeful and fit 2015 year.


The Stubborn Girl 5K Fit Classic will be held at Dorothea Dix Campus surrounded by ancient oaks and historic buildings right in the heart of downtown Raleigh. The running course will be on both grass and paved road. We anticipate athletes of all levels and abilities to participate in this running event.
