Welcome to the 2014 Battle The Beach 5K September 20 Wildwood, NJ
Up for taking TWO loops of the course? This year we've added a 10K option for participants looking for a little extra challenge!
Battle the Beach (BTB) is a hybrid event – combining the endurance of a 5K run, the difficulty of running on the sand, the color explosion of a Color Run and the obstacles of a Mud Run! That’s right, we are placing 12 -14 obstacles on the beach along a 3.1 mile course in Wildwood, NJ. There will be walls to climb over, tire swings to navigate, a cargo net, tunnels, hurdles, balance beams, sand mounds and water crawls all while on the beach and in the sand.
You only need $20 to register but must raise a minimum of $75 ($85 for the 10K option.) The minimum $75 is required to participate in the event which gets you an event t-shirt, finisher medal, slice of pizza and entry into the BTB Bash. Keep fundraising to reach different incentive levels! The $20 deposit is credited to your fundraising goal.
Battle The Beach will be chip-timed by Mid-Atlantic Timing utilizing the RM Timing Systems. This will allow a mix of ground and overhead based antennas which is ideally suited for this type of event. Participants will have a disposable timing chip already attached to their bib when they pick it up. Results will be posted live to the internet and the Mid-Atlantic Timing smartphone app. Participants will also receive e-mail notifications of their finish times. Friends and family can sign up for text, e-mail and Facebook notifications as well.
