Description

Our October 5th race is at Henry Kaufmann Campgrounds in Wheatley Heights.  The Rugged Run for Respect is a 5k out-and-back course; complete with body bending obstacles, and will not only test your physical strength and agility, but your mental stability as well.  You will crawl through tunnels, trudge through mud and carry sand bags across varied distances… all for a great cause!
