About This Activity

It's round two of the the Mid-Atlantic Run and Gun Race® and this time there will be even more opporunities to leap, crawl and shoot your way to the finish line!

The Run and Gun Race®, a mission inspired obstacle course race requiring shooters and athletes to overcome physical obstacles as well as shooting obstacles… and in some cases both at the same time.

Race participants are issued an M4 Professional Training Rifle, a military simulation airsoft rifle built to mimic the real thing in weight, handling, and firing characteristics, while providing a safe experience for shooters of all skill levels (or no skill at all). Athletes are familiarized their weapon, taught basic safety, movement and firing techniques, and then set loose into an intense woodland environment.

As racers move through the 5 kilometer course they will be confronted with exciting firing problems, reactive targets, challenging military style obstacles, and rugged terrain. Athletes will be timed and their scores based on both speed and accuracy.  Designed for both the competitive individual/team or the casual shooter, there are many ways to enjoy this race.

Created by members of the military elite, this “short” 5K course will challenge obstacle course racers, airsofters and shooters alike.  Space is limited... register early to ensure you get to earn your tags and enjoy the post-race festivities!

We proudly support the Special Operations Warrior Foundation and the Frederick based, Platoon 22.

Event details and schedule

The Mid-Atlantic Run and Gun Race® Fall 5K will be taking place on Saturday, September 24th and will be running rain or shine (though hurricanes and floods have caused postponements).

The summer course is tentatively scheduled to occur at the previous year's event site, the McIntosh Farm,  located in Maryland just north of Frederick, and will be conveniently accessible from Route 15. Directions will be made available as details are finalized before the event. Keep an eye on the RNGRacing community page for updates.

Heats will begin at approximately 8:30am in the morning, participants should plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to their scheduled start time to ensure they have ample time to check-in and catch a shuttle to the event site.
