Thirty states and a couple different countries will be represented by the field of male and female riders.

The course will feature several different types of obstacles for the racers.

“There’s going to be some planks or barriers that some people are going to be able to hop over, some people are just going to have to hop off and run, and then we have stairs on the backside of the course that everybody’s going to have to get off and run up,” said race director and competitor Frank Deal.
