Course Rules and Obstacles for Competitive waves

This will be sent in a email. Non-Competitive, your only rule is to have fun!

A few important points to remember:

Dogs and other pets are not welcome at packet pick-up or at the battlefield on race day. It will be hot- leave them at home, please!

Please arrive 1 hour before your horde time, if you haven’t picked up your packet before race day.

Write your tag number on your LEFT arm. If you lose your active tag, check in at the finish line. ·

Wear your active tag and RETURN it at the finish line. Or you will owe us $30. ·

Post-race snacks are available at the re-fueling station at the finish line provided by Gadsden Park and Rec and Kyuka. These are for racer only. ·

We have 8 outdoor showers and 2 changing tents available for your convenience. ·

There is no ATM available, so bring cash for food and drink vendors and any additional Barbarian Swag you may want. You will want some! We can take cardsat the swag tent and registration.

There will be 4 water stations. You can hit the 1st one twice, so that kinda makes 5! ·

There will be a 2000 lb. canon to start each horde, every 30 minutes. Pay attention.
