After our recent participation in the Warrior Dash , the organizers at Hero Rush were nice enough to comp Laima and me some media passes to check out Hero Rush Illinois. Pretty exciting stuff, though, as the Hero Rush promoters, state, it’s "Not Just A Mud Run:”
”Designed by veteran firefighters, the course and obstacles will enable everyone to feel the rush of being a firefighter for a day! We start with a 5k+ course, but instead of military style obstacles, ours will simulate the challenges that firefighters face on the job. Runners will climb ladders, scale steep roofs, bust through windows and doors, drag massive fire hoses, crawl through smoke-filled mazes, and more. No mud pits, but there will be tons of water and, at some events, even an opportunity for spectators to take aim on the runners!
The Illinois event takes place in Sandwich, which is a couple hours west of Chicago, on Saturday, July 28. REALLY looking forward to this event - it looks like a ton of fun -- we hope you’ll join us out there! Register at the Hero Rush website . When you sign up for the Illinois race, use the promo codes MultiSportLife15 and WomensEndurance15 - both are good for 15% off of a runner or Team entry to the Chicagoland race.
