Race Start Time:
8:00am will start the competitive racers and around 8:45am – 9:00am will start the open race times.
The BlackWatch Braveheart Challenge is a 6+ mile trail race through Oak Mountain State Park with over 20 obstacles. This event will challenge your speed, strength, and stamina. Race by yourself or with a team!
All race participants will wear timing chips, but racers can choose between Competitive or Open heats. If you are racing to win, register for an earlier Competitive heat.
Participants must be 14 or older on November 3rd. Racers ages 14-15 must race with an adult. We recommend that all athletes registering for the Competitive heats be able to run a 5k in 30 minutes or less. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 male and female Competitive racers who successfully complete all obstacles.
All racers will receive a t-shirt at check-in and a medal upon completion of the race.
