OverviewYour team of 2 or more buddies will be timed as you traverse a 5K course with obstacles. You'll need each other to complete some obstacles so choose your buddies wisely...or don't and just finish and enjoy the free grub and beer at the end. All participants are invited to celebrate in a free post-event luau immediately following the race located near the finish line. Guests can purchase luau-only tickets for $5 on event day. Bring the whole family and enjoy the luau! The best part is 100% of the proceeds go to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
