We guarantee you’ve never seen anything like the inaugural Jerry Jog before. This race is part standard skimo, part obstacle course, and a dash of sufferfest. Our 3 mile loop with 1,000 feet of elevation gain and a number of obstacles is sure to be a good time for both the brand new racer and the uphill pros.
Racers will receive “coins” for things like best costume, ski style and obstacle completion which will go towards helping your race time. Who knows, you may even be able to take some time off your lap for being a good bacon eater – vegan options available too 🙂
Costumes are highly encouraged, with prizes for the best-dressed Jerry.
Potential obstacles Include:
- Slalom Course
- Pond Skim
- Precarious boot packing
- balance beams
- Wire crawl
- Optional kickers
- Limbo bar
- Mario Kart
