Event Details get a 5 out of 5. Parking was extremely easy and free. They put a huge amount of thought into the facilities. It was really cold, and they had a heated tent and racers and spectators had access to the heated park building.
Registration was fantastic. It was very organized and very quick. We were through the line in a matter of minutes. The race bags were packed in nice thick ziplock bags. The shirts were a VERY nice dri-blend shirt.
I really enjoyed that there was no beer but several varieties of PowerAde, water and Hint water. That was a really nice change of pace.

  • Race details (course, obstacles, difficulty etc):

The course was a nice combination of trail running, road running and obstacles. The obstacles weren’t anything hardcore, but were still fun. The one negative was that the course wasn’t as long as advertised. I was looking forward to the four miles and it was definitely shorter than that. But what there was of the course was very well marked and well staffed. I was very impressed they used RaceWire so we were able to get our results very quickly. That was definitely a plus.

I would certainly run this one again. It was definitely a fun day out.

Parking was a bit of an issue. Drove round for a while trying to figure that out. No one to direct us. Although it was free and right next to the race. Huge bonus. Free food after the race = excellent. The schwag was the usual tshirt. Can’t complain. All in all it was really well run, especially considering this was their first event.

  • Race details (course, obstacles, difficulty etc):

The course wasnt the 4 miles advertised. It came in just shy of 3 miles I think. It was mostly running with 8 (I believe) obstacles. The running was through wompatuck state park so it was very scenic and took us through trails which was great. The obstacles were nice and simple, good for beginners to OCRs. The after party gathering was fun. Everyone mingling enjoying the food. And the whole event raised money for diabetes research.

Parking: Literally AT the starting line.
Facilities:  Indoor restrooms but also port-a-potties.  I used both.
Vendors:  None.  BUT at registration there were bagels/coffee/hot cocoa available.   After the race there was free food catered by some local restaurants.  Moe’s – Salsa and Chips.  The Fours – Awesome Baked Mac and Cheese!  Tennessee BBQ – Ribs/Burgers/Sausage/Hot Dogs.  Also COOKIES…NOMNOMNOM!  And a good selection of hydration options: Water, Hint, Powerade.
Schwag;  A free T-shirt.  Tech Blend.

  • Race details (course, obstacles, difficulty etc):

The course was billed as 4 miles in length, but I’m going to give it a conservative 5k in length.  It may have been a little shy, but that’s not a huge deal.
There were 8 obstacles:
1 Up and Unders – Under Saw Horses, over Jersey Barriers
2 Balancing Act – Balance Beam while weaving through ropes
3 Tenacious Tires – Tire Pile
4 Spider Web – Climb through ropes strung like a web.
5 Reach the Top – Kinda like climbing over a picnic table with 7 extra steps up and down
6 Renegade Trek -Hilly windy terrain
7 Crawling in the Dark – Crawl through tunnels
8 Over and Out – Over the hay stack and through the finish!

While this race wasn’t super challenging, it was a lot of fun.  An addition that was made last minute was some Normandy Walls.  I managed to break one by doing it the correct way (stepping in the cross beams and over).  I didn’t do that again and just stepped over the rest of them.

Being the first Renegade Run, it was VERY well organized and it can only get better from here!
