The Blitz

The Blitz is a new and wildly fun 2 mile obstacle course run for kids 9 to 17 along with their parents.  It will be the first obstacle course race aimed directly at kids in Northeast Ohio.  We want kids of all shapes, sizes and athletic ability to compete in The Blitz.  It will be a fun and challenging experience as kids make new friends while conquering 10 obstacles scattered throughout the 2 mile course that will challenge your kid's strength, fitness and determination.  They'll experience cargo nets, wall climbing, over/unders, mud slides and much more.  Run with friends and make a team, run with your parents or run on your own and make new blitz buddies... either way you will have a blast!  Each kid will win a Blitz t-shirt, a finishing medal and some swag.
