This 5k-ish is not like any other you have done (Unless you ran in a previous years race)  Focus is on TEAM WORK . So recruit a teammate, or we will find one for you, and come out to a challenging 5K-ish Trail Run with a mix of dirt, grass, limestone, hills, and of course some mud . Your team can be all male, female, or coed. Your team will select the weight of the Wreck Bag to be used, 25lb or 40lb. Teams make it through the course alternating carrying the Wreck Bag however needed until the Team gets to the Finish Line. All finishers will receive a Finishers Medal. All winners will receive prizes
