The 6th annual Spring Run the Gauntlet obstacle course race is back in East Rock Park on May 5th. The East Rock Park Run the Gauntlet is the first of the Denali Gauntlet Race series, with the second race taking place in the fall at Bishop's Orchard on August 18th. The East Rock 5K course features 15 man-made and natural obstacles. After the race, hang out and and enjoy the post-race party, complete with music, awards and food!

Only the 9:00 am heat is competative but every runner has a chance to win awards from any heat.
