About This Activity

The Hell's Furnace is like no other 5 or 10K you have ever run. It is not for the faint of heart. Hell's Furnace is a self supported race that is run in the scenic Rillito wash during the summer at the hottest part of the day (race starts at 2:00pm). Expect temperatures well over 100 degrees. Both distances will be run on the same course. Depending on the amount of participants, the start times may vary (tentatively both 5K &10K are set to start at 2pm). You will not set any records on this course. As a matter of fact there will be a one hour cutoff for the 5K and a two hour cutoff for the 10K. If you cannot run a road 5K in under a half hour or a road 10K in under an hour, you should not register for this race. As of right now, no official awards will be given (subject to change). If you want an award for finishing this race, then this may not be the race for you. $5.00 from every registration fee will be donated to the non-profit Officer Down Memorial Page ( www.ODMP.ORG). A raffle will also be held at the time of the race and 100% of the proceeds will also go to www.ODMP.ORG. Raffle items include, but are not limited to a "Thin Blue Line" flag from www.rustedamericanmetal.com and a number of one month memberships to local crossfit affiliates.  Be safe. Be smart. Have fun.
