The Firebreather Challenge: Admission for one

The Durham County Fairgrounds • Durham, CT

Select Times on October 12 and 13

What you get

  • Race Admission for One
  • Choice of Dates: October 12 or 13
  • Official Race T-Shirt
  • Choice of Two Races: 6.5-Mile Firebreather or the 3.5-Mile Firestarter

You've already mastered the early-morning race -- the one where you shave, put on pants, and rush out the door to make it to the office on time. But you can challenge your body further with today's deal: Pay $39 (regularly $80) to register for The Firebreather Challenge, and you'll also receive a T-shirt. Sign up for one of three dates. Choose between two races: 6.5-mile Firebreather or the 3.5-Mile Firestarter. Heats for Friday, October 12 begin at 2 p.m., and there will be a night run where you'll be able to bring your own lighted head gear. Heats for Saturday, October 13 run all day (if Saturday's heats fill up, time slots will be available on Sunday, October 14 as well). Choose one and race through the The Durham County Fairgrounds as you scale eight-foot walls, vault over hurdles, wade through the river, and drag a weighted sled. With each obstacle you complete, you'll collect one wristband proving your accomplishment to the judges -- a much better reward for your morning rush than a day full of work.
