It is with great disappointment that we have to cancel this awesome event.  With only 50 registered racers, we didnâ??t feel that we could put forth the epic experience as promised.  We will  regroup and continue to work hard on putting out fun, active programs in Grand Rapids for you to enjoy.  On behalf of all our charity partners and corporate sponsors, we thank you for your continued support.

Stuff to Know

  • We start and end at Heartside Park.  
  • 4-6 people per team, all must be 21+
  • This is a 5k urban team adventure race with a cart, bar crawl, costume contest, and an epic after-party all wrapped into one
  • Shopping carts are provided by SpartanNash / Family Fare.  You can decorate 1.5 hrs before the race starts at the beer tent.
  • During the race, there will be 5 mandatory checkpoints (bars) with a 20-minute holding time at each checkpoint to rehydrate your 'doggies'
  • The 5 checkpoints are a mystery.  We'll disclose this info just moments before the race begins
  • Choose your own race path.  This is urban, remember?.  Just follow pedestrian traffic laws, hit your checkpoints in any order, and make it back in one piece.
  •  Minute-To-Win-It challenges will be at every checkpoint to help pass the time.  You'll have a chance to win prizes and/or reduce holding times at checkpoints, so bring your A-game!
  • We will recognize winners with prizes for the following:  1st place, Dead Effin' Last, and Best Theme (costumes and cart).
  • Epic after-party to follow.  Live music, beer tent, yard games...the works!
