  • 21.1K / 13.1M (Half Marathon) — Obstacle Run


It's our swan song... Yes, you heard right, The Inferno will happen for the 5th and final time on September 23rd, 2017.

The Inferno is an extreme obstacle course adventure race, offered in 3 distances so you can choose the challenge that is right for you! We've got a 13.1 mile, 30+ obstacle course and a 6 mile, 20+ obstacle course, both featuring a 200m swim. New for 2015 is our 3-4 mile course with 15+ obstacles that will not include a swim. We've developed a number of challenging obstacles spread out over a rugged terrain in the scenic backdrop of the Pacific Northwest. You'll climb hills, haul sandbags, flip tires, climb ropes and walls, traverse monkey bars, and SWIM* your way to the finish line! Come put yourself to the test at The Inferno, designed to push you to you limits!

With all of our new distances, lots of things are changing! One thing that we will not compromise on is MUD! We've said it once and we'll say it again, mud is NOT an obstacle! If you're looking for a mud slide then this isn't the race for you. But, if you're looking for a challenge like no other then step right up to The Inferno!

Skulls will complete two loops of our 13.1 mile course, will encounter over 60 obstacles and nearly a mile of elevation gain)
