Does anyone want to participate in the Albany Urban Raid? It is August 9th. If you are looking to try an obstacle race or just want to join some fellow CF athletes, this may be the place to do it. If we have enough interest, it would be great to have a team going.
Below is a description of the Raid:
Introducing a new, cutting-edge race series designed for a new breed of cross training athlete – The RAID. Come experience the next generation of obstacle racing; one that features varied terrain, large-scale customized infrastructure, and extraordinary venues that range from picturesque beaches to energized downtown metros.
At 3.1 miles in distance at each race course, you’ll be challenged to run, crawl, jump, climb, and scramble through sand or city streets. Our immense constructed obstacles are designed to test your strength, agility, balance, and core, while keeping you safe and injury free. We want you to cross that finish line exhausted and ecstatic, with your friends and family cheering you on. And we want you to celebrate your accomplishment by joining your fellow athletes and fans at the post-race party, complete with recovery stations, sponsor booths, music, food, and beer!
RAID Events are open to men and women of all fitness levels over the age of 16 who desire a new challenge. Whether you’re a seasoned triathlete or runner seeking the next big thing, a weekend warrior bored with the gym, or a first time racer, you are encouraged to toe the starting line. We think that you’ll be amazed by what you discover in your journey to the finish.
